Dubai Motor Show 2015 Highlights

The Dubai Motor Show is a biennial auto show held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Due to the high interest of expensive cars in Dubai, this auto show attracts major car and super car manufactures, tuning companies, Antique Auto and Classic Car Restorers, Automotive restoration providers, a slew of motorcycle manufacturers, and other related companies.

This year, I went to see for myself whether the Dubai Motor Show meets its hype or not. I parked the car, walked the long walk, paid the AED65 (~$18) entry fee and and went into the Dubai International Convention Center halls. It wasn’t the weekend thankfully, so the crowd was just right. Funny enough, while strolling through the halls, I ran through a small crowd and lots of mobile phones taking photos. It was the entourage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (The Ruler of Dubai) who was visiting the Dubai Motor Show, with his son Shk. Hamdan, crown prince of Dubai.

Interview: Tarek ElMoukachar, Dubai PR Expert

Less than ten years ago, while I was working for a tech publication, I received an email from a new PR expert who was at that time representing Microsoft Xbox. To my astonishment, and as I discovered later on after meeting him face to face and running through thorough interrogations by yours truly, he knew a lot about videogames. He was a hardcore gamer not a fake one. When I asked him about anything, he would get to the bottom of it or simply say I don’t know. I always liked to work with a PR man whom I can trust and rely on. His name is…
