On March 6-12, the Dubai Chamber generously hosted an ACCE Metro Cities Council delegation of 45 people from 22 states and one Canadian province. This group, headed by ACCE Chair Dave Adkisson (president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce) and ACCE Metro Cities Council Chair Roy Williams (president and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce), visited many parts of Dubai, including the world's tallest building (the Burj Khalifa), the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel, the Palm Jumeirah luxury development just off shore in the Persian Gulf, the world's largest man-made seaport, a $3 billion racecourse, the world's largest shopping mall, and even an indoor ski slope!

The Dubai Chamber also facilitated meetings with key business people throughout this metropolis of 1.8 million people that serves a trade area for close to 2 billion people. The ACCE group, moreover, was invited to the palace of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, where Dave Adkisson sat next to the legendary leader of Dubai and the delegation members were served colorful fruit drinks as they listened to interesting conversation and, in the background, heard peacocks rustling in the garden.
