Doha International Airport hosted a gala dinner last night at the Grand Hyatt, Doha, for delegates of 2013 ACI Airport Exchange, being held from 11 to 13 November. Taking advantage of the cool weather, the event was set outdoors, where guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner while they enjoyed spectacular live entertainment.

Patrick Muller, Executive Vice President of Doha International Airport, opened the evening by commending this year’s speakers for the innovative and progressive insight shared during the conference.

Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid, Managing Director of Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad and President of ACI Asia Pacific, and Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company and President of ACI Europe, also spoke at the event and praised Qatar’s aviation development.

The highlight of the evening was an outstanding horse show provided by Al Shaqab re-enacting a battle long ago where Bedouin warriors fought on horses for Qatar’s independence. Muller concluded the evening by presenting a memento to Patrick Collard, Chief of Staff of the Chairman and CEO of Aeroports De Paris, for the role as hosts of next year’s Airport Exchange conference and exhibition.
