International Conference on Global Economy's 2012 Soft Opening
The International Conference on Global Economy (ICGE) has been up and running for 11 years, tackling topics that contribute to the growth of the economy. ICGE was founded in 2000 under the auspices of the management department of the former School of Business, Economics, and Communication (known earlier as BEC), as well as the AUC Student Union. ICGE hosts around 600 student delegates and 200 organizing member students, who collectively engage in business and economic activities.
This year’s soft opening ceremony welcomed all ICGE new delegates and initiated the conference sessions. The soft opening was ICGE's first official event this year and set the tone for the club’s events all year.
ICGE’s distinguished guest of honor Mohamed Shaaban, near-east financial manager for Proctor & Gamble, devoted some of his time to shed some light on Egypt's economic state and dispense some personal expertise on the situation. The event also featured several University representatives and ICGE’s faculty advisor Hamed Shamma. The ICGE board would like to recognize Shamma for his continuous support for the club in the form of guidance and advice throughout the semester. The ICGE considers his input a major component in their success.
In addition to the keynote address by Shaaban, the ceremony featured a number of live performances that were truly inspiring and, most importantly, entertaining. The ceremony was followed by a dinner and reception. The ICGE crew and attendees were also treated to a live DJ for entertainment.
