Troy Chamber hosts Dubai trip informational meeting

The Troy Chamber of Commerce has negotiated with its travel company for travel to Dubai in March 2013. Group members will now fly out of Detroit Metropolitan Airport rather than the original Chicago departure location. In light of this new development, the Chamber has extended its early bird pricing until Oct. 19.
For as low as $2195 per person, participants will enjoy deluxe accommodations, airfare, meals, a variety of attractions and more. The trip includes memorable sites, both ancient and modern. Travelers will even have an opportunity to ride a camel, dress in traditional Bedouin robes and sand surf.
A free Dubai informational sessions is at noon Tuesday, Oct. 16 at the Troy Chamber office, 4555 Investment Drive, Troy, (off Crooks Road, between Wattles and Long Lake Road). Answers to questions about tipping or taxis, luggage or lunches, safety, customs or restrooms will be addressed.
This event is being promoted in partnership with the Arab American and Chaldean Council. To register, call 248-641-8151 or visit
