I agree with Hani, as it’s difficult for me for example to get visa to KSA or Oman.

UAE is a good location also I guess.

Thank you.

	Dear Nasser,


	Thanks for your suggestion. We try to balance between two main things:

	- Being in an easy country is good as it will allow more people to attend the meeting from around the globe.

	- However, we have an obligation to try to visit as many countries as possible.


	For Saudi Arabia, Visas are possible and when we did MENOG6 in Riyadh, we had an excellent show of visitors who managed to get their Visa on time. Note that you just need to plan earlier.


	Having said the above, we would like to hear your ideas on alternative locations. Our next meeting is planned for Muscat, Oman.
