Dubai to host ASTA International Destination Expo (IDE) 2013 next April

DUBAI: Dubai is the official host of the ASTA International Destination Expo (IDE) 2013 to be held in April next year, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) announced today.

The announcement reflects DTCM’s efforts to expand its promotion of the emirate’s tourism assets through a partnership with the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).

The event will be promoted at a stall at this year’s ASTA Travel Retailing and Destination Expo held in Los Angeles September 7-9th, 2012. The Retailing Expo is the top North American meeting place for destinations, travel suppliers and travel retailers worldwide, attended by 1040 travel agents from across the USA, DTCM said in a press release.

This 2013 conference was successfully brought to the emirate by Dubai Convention Bureau on behalf of the DTCM, who secured the decision in favor of Dubai and is recognized as co-sponsor of the meeting. ASTA estimates attendance in Dubai next year will be between 500 and 700 travel agents.

The DTCM staff in LA was joined at the stand by representatives of six Dubai-based tourism companies, whose products and services are included in the ASTA IDE Dubai itinerary: 24 Degrees, InterContinental and Crown Plaza Festival City, Emirates Airline, the J.W. Marriott Marquis and Madinat Jumeirah.

Executive Director of Business Tourism at DTCM Hamad M. Bin Mejren said: “The prestige of hosting ASTA’s IDE next year is a great honor and recognized throughout the tourism and convention industries worldwide.” “Cities from around the globe vie for this opportunity. We can expect to see continued growth of North American tourism traffic in 2013 and beyond as these ASTA agents serve as new ambassadors for Dubai, spreading their enthusiasm to new clients from around the world,” he added.

Three Kalimat Books Make 2012 IBBY Honour List

Sharjah: Three books published by Kalimat Publishing, the Sharjah-based publisher of high quality Arabic books for children, have been selected for the 2012 International Board on Books for Young People’s (IBBY) Honour List.

The IBBY Honour List is a biennial selection of outstanding, recently published books, honouring writers, illustrators and translators from IBBY member countries.

The Honour List was announced at the 33rd IBBY Congress that was held between the 23rd and 26th of August in London. Billed as the greatest gathering of children’s books enthusiasts in the world, the 33rd IBBY Congress was attended by delegates from across the world highlighting the international diversity of children’s books and their role as a bridge between cultures.

On the occasion, Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi, Kalimat founder and CEO, said, “We are elated to have three of our books selected for the IBBY Honour List where the best books are handpicked from across the world. Written, translated, and illustrated by renowned Arabic children’s writers, the books are prime examples of excellence in Arabic children’s literature. Kalimat is proud of its contribution to children’s literature and we intend to continue our efforts in this direction with the same commitment and passion. ”

The book chosen for excellence in the illustration category is Ibn Battuta’, a concise biography that explains the travels of the globe-trotting Arab historian Ibn Battuta through a series of fascinating anecdotes. Illustrated by illustrator, graphic designer and author Intelaq Mohammad Ali, the book tells the story of the renowned Arab explorer in an informative and interesting manner.

Wathifat Mama’ (My Mother’s Job) written by Abir Ballan, a heart-warming story that celebrates the diverse roles handled by a homemaker mom was another Kalimat book that made it to the honour list. Princesses of the World’ is the third book which clinched a spot in the list in the translation category.

Translated into Arabic by Fatima Sharefeddine from its original French version, this book is the story of 14 princesses from diverse lands who take you on an enchanting journey of the ancient world as seen through their eyes. The book is a snapshot of cultures from the east and west ranging from Japan to Spain and includes our very own Scheherazade.

During the Congress, Kalimat was lauded by IBBY for the quality of its books and its overall contribution to Arabic children’s literature, and was awarded certificates for each of its honour list books.

Kalimat participates in Beijing International Book Fair

Sharjah: Kalimat Publishing House, is participating in the Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF) 2012, which is taking place in the Chinese capital from 29th of August to 2nd September.

The five-day long exhibition, now in its nineteenth year since its inception in 1986, has become a world-class event with thousands of publishers, readers and writers visiting China every year to take part in the exhibition.

On the occasion, Tamer Said, business development manager for Kalimat, commented, “Our participation in BIBF is an opportunity to exchange cultural ideas and to promote the authentic Arab culture and literature. Such events allow for higher understanding and sharing of common customs enabling us to celebrate the greater depth of experience that our differences bring to the table.” Said went on to add that one of the most important aims of Kalimat’s participation in BIBF 2012 is to secure rights deals for Kalimat books. The participation in the international event forms part of the Department of Culture and Information’s initiatives to promote Emirati literature in Asia.

Kalimat will also be working to strengthen and develop the ties that they had forged during the previous participation and to explore new avenues of cooperation.

International Day of the Disappeared: helping families in their quest to find out what happened

Geneva: The families of countless people all over the world who went missing in connection with armed conflict and other emergencies are enduring painful uncertainty as they remain without news of their loved ones, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said today in the run-up to the International Day of the Disappeared which is being observed tomorrow.

While the authorities concerned have an obligation under international humanitarian law to do everything in their power to determine what happened to those who went missing, a greater commitment needs to be made to help the families of the missing overcome the difficulties confronting them in their daily lives, the International organisation’s regional Delegation for the GCC Countries in Kuwait observed in a statement.

“The scars that war leaves on relatives of missing persons and their communities are deep,” said Marianne Pecassou, who heads the activities carried out by the ICRC for the families of missing persons. “People who don’t know whether those who have vanished are alive or dead are leading lives of uncertainty. In some cases, they have been waiting for decades, and it often happens that they suffer from emotional and social isolation. Sometimes, they’re even shunned as bearers of bad luck, and women can be stigmatized because they are left without the protection of a male family member.” “No matter how much time has passed, the authorities must to do everything in their power to throw light on what happened to those who went missing and to provide the families with any information they obtain,” said Ms Pecassou. “Meanwhile, it is urgent to give the families the support they need to deal with everyday challenges and live decently.
