Dubai, May 11, 2008
UAE Minister for foreign trade Shaikha Lubna Al Qasimi will deliver the opening day keynote address at the forthcoming International CES/Hometech Exhibition.
The event will be held from May 25 to 27 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“Shaikha Lubna is well known and highly regarded as one of the most easily recognisable government officials in the UAE, primarily because of her numerous groundbreaking achievements in both the public and private sectors,” said CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt, organisers of the event, Eckhard Pruy.
“Her unique perspectives are certain to provide attendees with information that will help them run their businesses more efficiently and effectively.”
Shaikha Lubna will speak on the importance of innovative technology with business leaders who understand the significant role it plays in today's home technology environment.
'We are very pleased to have someone with Sheikha Lubna’s knowledge and experience presenting at our event, as she understands both the business imperatives of home technology and the technological requirements needed to achieve benefits,' said Pruy.
As one of the country's pioneering female professionals in the field of computer engineering, Shaikha Lubna has had extensive experience in handling several technical responsibilities with a number of highly reputed firms, which ultimately led her to a coveted post at Dubai Ports Authority.
Shaikha Lubna has also showcased her exceptional management skills in the corporate world when she was named CEO of Tejari (www.tejari.com), which she guided to become the premier electronic business-to-business marketplace for emerging markets and where she now serves as a board member.
