ASA Conference / Meeting in Dubai UAE 20-23rd October 2019



We are very please to advise we have now finalised the arrangements for this years meeting which will be held in Dubai UAE from 20th – 23rd October 2019.

Through popular request we are going back to the Le Meridien Hotel and Conference Center where we had a great time back in 2015, for those of you who missed this meeting let me tell you about some of the hotel facilities, it in a huge complex of its own (Village) with 15 different restaurants, every night there is live music in the village, there are half a dozen different bars, there are 5 swimming pools with gardens and sunbeds, a massive split level well equipped Gymnasium.

If this is not enough its very close to the famous “Irish Village” which has another dozen restaurants and bars again with live music most nights.


In 2015 Najd Star our hosts took us all for a wonderful desert trip in 4 x 4 great fun and then dinner in an oasis with dancing and local food. This year Shaukat has a couple of other great ideas for a special night (Yet to be finalised) so dont miss this once in a lifetime opportunity it will be fun.

We strongly suggest you add a day or two to your trip as there is so much to see and do in Dubai, for the ladies there is the biggest Shopping Mall in the world, Lots of Duty Fee Shops, the tallest building in the world and many more wonders of the world to see. Why not bring your partner and make it a special event/break we will make them most welcome.
