XLP gathers in Dubai

Almost 160 delegates from around the world gathered in Dubai last week for the XLProjects (XLP) annual general meeting (AGM).

Held at the Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, this year’s event debuted a new format that involved an extra day of networking activities and a group activity.

In addition to one-to-one meetings, XLP organised a desert safari for delegates involving 4 x 4 off-roading, sand-boarding, camel rides and traditional entertainment.

Other event highlights included a meal at the Al Dawaar revolving restaurant, offering panoramic views of the city, and an awards evening.

At the AGM, XLP announced that its 2020 meeting will be held at the Landmark Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand from September 13 - 16.
