General Information about Kuwait City for Meeting Planners
Kuwait City is a beautiful convention city on the fringe of the Persian Gulf. It blends war-torn sectors with contemporary and Islamic architecture, along with bustling street markets with elegant hotels. The result is a fabulous mix of history and modern advances in Kuwait’s capital city. Perched on the tip of an inlet called Kuwait Bay, the dry terrain of Kuwait City is softened by the waters of the Arabian Sea. Known for its futuristic-looking Kuwait Towers, Kuwait City is the heartbeat of the Kuwaiti emirate, its culture and its economics.

Kuwait Food Choices for Convention Attendees
Kuwait City has some excellent restaurants you might want to try when you don’t have to be at your convention or conference. The favorite among traditional mid-eastern cuisine is Mais Alghanim, located just across from the Kuwait Towers. The hummus is delectable, the menu is varied and the staff is hospitable here. If you’ve got a yen for Japanese cuisine, visit Tatami, a new restaurant in the heart of the city. You’ll love the sleek décor and the artistic presentations as much as the food. Al-Mayas serves some of the best Lebanese fare in the entire city, so try to hit it while you’re in town. Order the Kabar with cherry sauce or Fatosh Salad for some real treats.
Kuwait Attractions for Conference Delegates
Kuwait City has much to see and experience in between business meetings at your conference. To really get the flavor of this unique city, try an afternoon at Souk Al-Mubarakiya, a quintessential middle-eastern street market. The Scientific Center is a favorite sight to see in Kuwait City, containing an aquarium and an awesome 3-D iMax cinema. Another good bet would be the Tareq Rajab Museum of Islamic Arts. This place offers a cornucopia of jewelry, costumes and weapons collections. If you like museums, you could also try the Kuwait National Museum, which has a planetarium as well.
