When is your conference?

Looks like Arieh Wagner is running a kosher program in Habtoor Palace from end December with a kosher coffee shop...

Just don't take any fotos of the airport.  Two israelis got arrested today in Dubai for taking pictures.
There are cameras everywhere.

Have a 4 day business conference in Dubai this winter. Its centered on Habtoor Palace. Question is- should I stay there or go for some way better place? (Waldorf or Ritz, St Regis is too far).

Also, can someone please PM where is Chabad? Obviously cant find address online. Maybe I'll stay near them for Minyan...
Al Wasl District. That location is for during the week minyanim etc. Shabbat is somewhere else.

Anyone want to start a master list of hotels that can provide kosher food?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Tip #1 - there's a new kosher catering/takeout called treats kosher cheapest best option can order online etc (jewishuae.com/tourist-info/kosher-food)

Tip #2 - if you are staying for shabbos there are meals with chabad, book hotels accordingly jewishuae.com/tourist-info/shabbat-with-chabad
Important to know that minyan during the week is in a different place (Al Wasl) so you may want to book a different hotel during the week
