The Global Islamic Economic Summit (GIES) 2013 is just around the corner. The much anticipated event will take place on the 25th-26th November 2013 at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE under the patronage of Vice President & Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The event will give an opportunity to all stake holders in the Halal and Islamic market space to engage in discussions that will impact the future of these industries. Travel being one of the key segments which will be discussed, I wanted to share a few of my thoughts on this space.
