Event Details

The mercury is rising, and the daytime temperatures in Dubai are already touching 40-degrees Centigrade. Welcome to summer, UAE-style!

Many of your friends and family members are already planning their summer sojourn outside of the Middle East. But you have to stay and look after the business/house/bills/pets (delete as applicable), right?

So you need something to look forward to. And what better reward for your dedication than the annual EICN Summer Survivor's Dinner?

This social event for primary members will provide the perfect opportunity to escape the heat and unwind after a long, challenging Dubai summer in the private dining room of Lowe, the first restaurant in the UAE to win a Michelin Green Star. Enjoy fabulous food and drinks in the company of the EICN team, The Economist's Middle East correspondent Gregg Carlstrom, and your fellow network members.

And following the success of last year's Beef Wellington masterclass, expect to be wearing an apron for at least some of the evening!

We hope to see you there.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Intelligence Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please contact us.
