LogicBoxes and Skenzo organized yet another special event for the ICANN meeting attendees at Cairo this November, following up on their success with the Taj Sojourn during the ICANN Delhi meeting.
The event generated quite a bit of interest among the ICANN attendees, many of whom had attended the Taj trip earlier this year. The elite list included the likes of of Bruce Tonkin (MelbourneIT), James Bladel/Tim Ruiz (GoDaddy), Jeffrey Eckhaus (Demand Media), Stephane Van Gelder (Indom), Jon Nevett (Network Solutions), Trey Harvin (dotMOBI), and Mason Cole (Oversee.net) to name a few.
“We received quite an overwhelming response to our Taj trip, and it has always been our intent to facilitate greater communication and foster exchange between all ICANN meeting delegates, and the internet community at large. And Cairo being such a beautiful and exotic city, we thought it but natural to create this special event for our guests, to provide them the opportunity to socialize and network with their peers even as they visit the last remnant of the Ancient Seven Wonders of the World!” said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and Founder of Directi.
The trip started off with an awe-inspiring tour of the Valley of the Kings, comprising of the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx, the world’s largest monolith statue. This was followed by a cruise on the Nile River aboard the regal environment of the Nile Pharaoh cruise ship, replete with food and entertainment. Apart from this, there was a visit to all the celebrated landmarks, such as the Egyptian Museum, the Papyrus Institute, the Khan El Khalili market and the Sound & Light Show – a complete experience of all the sights and sounds that Cairo has to offer.
The event, christened ‘An Egyptian Odyssey’, was a huge success, and was attended by a diverse set of delegates – from Domain Name Registry members to Registrars from across the globe. All those who participated were enthralled by the mystic grandeur of the monuments and the rich cultural history and traditions of Egypt.
Says Divyank Turakhia, President of Skenzo,” We wanted the Egyptian Odyssey to be on an even greater scale than the Taj trip, and we left no stone unturned to ensure that our guests took back some very special memories from this event. All our guests immensely enjoyed the experience, which allowed them to explore the wonders of Cairo in a way that would not have been possible otherwise, due to their busy schedules.”
