American Business Council Hosts Annual Super Bowl Party & Networking Night DUBAI – FEBRUARY 5, 2013 The American Business Council of Dubai & the Northern Emirates (ABC) hosted its annual Super Bowl Party & Networking Night on Monday February 4, 2013 at the Velocity Entertainment Lounge in the new JW Marriot Marquis. A large crowd packed the private lounge to capacity, as they watched the replay of Super Bowl XLVII. Among attendees were U.S. Consul General Robert Waller, ABC President Ramsey Jurdi and four past presidents of the ABC. This year’s Super Bowl was one of the more entertaining games in Super Bowl history, with the sibling rivalry between Coach John Harbaugh and Coach Jim Harbaugh, the Destiny’s Child reunion that rocked the half-time show, fans witnessing a 30-minute stadium blackout, and the Baltimore Ravens ultimately walking away with the Lombardi trophy. ABC members shared the excitement by cheering on their team and sporting their team jerseys, as they enjoyed good food, good company and the opportunity to increase their business and social networks. Like this hugely popular networking event, the ABC hosts many other events including its newly launched Mid-week Mixer, a strictly social networking night to be held on the second Wednesday of every month, and its County Spotlight events, which focus on a different country in the region and how to maximize Dubai’s potential as a regional business hub. In addition to the valuable networking and business opportunities, the ABC also organizes community events such as its Annual Golf Tournament, which will be held on Thursday, April 4th.
