AABS Connect to Go Ahead in Cairo Despite Attacks

For Event: AABS Connect Conference 2017 2017-05-14
Publish date:2017-04-10

In light of the terror attacks that have been recently reported in Egypt, the Association of African Business Schools and The American University in Cairo School of Business would like to assure all delegates about their safety during the conference.

The AUC SOB in New Cairo Campus is located in the safest and most protected area in Cairo. The campus is highly secured. The Westin Hotel is 5 minutes by car from the campus and both are 25 minutes from Cairo Airport (in case there is an emergency).

Please do not be discouraged by the unfortunate events as the conference will still take place. We will keep in touch with further information on how delegates can stay safe, places to avoid, etc and an official press statement will be made available to all those attending and wish to attend the Connect conference.

Online registrations are still open until Friday 05 May. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the AABS Secretariat.
