“It is my pleasure to be part of such a prestigious event. It was simply amazing for the ICC UAE team to put up such a grand show! The speakers were eminent personalities with a variety of profiles, the sessions were topical & current and the programme layout was very well planned. I thoroughly enjoyed the event. Vin, you were such a marvelous MC- professional to the core. Even a paid MC would not have been half as good as you were.
Looking forward to more such events from ICC.”

“What a fantastic team you are! I have seldomly felt such a warm welcome, and this has nothing to do with Dubai temperatures.
It has been a well organised and inspiring event which has highlighted the importance of the need for the industry to come together, share challenges and views via open dialogue and for China Systems to be creative, agile and proactive in an increasingly dynamic Trade landscape.
Looking forward to the next ICC UAE event!“
