The Emirates Scientific Club, which is part of the Cultural & Scientific Association, aims to combine and unite the efforts of cultural and intellectual establishments within the UAE. It is using its stand in the DIC Community Zone to publicise its many activities and programmes.

Since it was founded in 1990, the club has encouraged amateur scientists in a wide range of areas, including electronics, computing, photography, astronomy, agriculture, aviation, carpentry, electricity and calligraphy. The Club is also a member of numerous scientific communities, including the International Federation of Inventors Association and the Intellectual Property Organisation. The Club has also exhibited in Science Expo, and it also organised the first Arab Scientific Clubs’ Convention, which took place in Dubai three years ago.

However, the Club is finding its Gitex stand to be a much bigger crowd-puller. “At the DIC Community Zone we are being exposed to a extraordinary number of visitors. Lots of attendees are expressing an interest to learn more about us and I am optimistic of the benefit our taking part in Gitex will have on the Club in the long term,” says Bilal Al-Budoor, chairman of the Arabic Language Protecting Association, and the general secretary of the Emirates Scientific Club.

“Our position within the DIC Community Zone also presents us with what is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn about the cutting edge technology being displayed at nearby stands,” he adds.
