Welcome


The 15th IBIMA conference on Knowledge Management and Innovation: A Business Competitive Edge Perspective will be held in Cairo, Egypt 6-7 November 2010.

Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa and the Middle East.  Established 1000 years ago, the city is one of the most populated cities in the world and has long been known to be a center of the region's political and cultural life.  Cairo has a unique mix of Ancient Egyptian, Coptic, and Islamic cultures.  It encompasses many museums and numerous historic buildings of the city's many rulers - Arab, Roman, Greek, Turkish, British, and French. Further, it is located in a very close proximity to Great Sphinx and the pyramids.  

The Month of November is one of the best months to travel to Cairo due to the excellent cooler autumn weather.
