March Event at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi

The UAE Alumni Association met again on March 19, 2014 at the Yas Viceroy Hotel, Yas Island. This time we chose the relaxed and unbeatable scenery of Yas Island to host the event, with more than 25 LSE Alumni coming along despite the distance from both Dubai and Abu Dhabi city centres. The event was of social nature, with short speeches from Abdul Wahab and Diego Lopez, who talked about the direction of the Association and announced the upcoming events during 2014. In particular, they explained the objective of getting one student sponsored for a three-year programme at the LSE by the end of 2014, and they revealed the exciting line-up of speakers coming up on April 30 in Dubai.
