Is that supposed to be tilted back and read like the Star Wars intro?

No, Joe, that's Al Qurayyah's absurdly-disproportioned font. Razz

Reminds me of Al Qurayyah's skyline. Laughing

@Joe 90, @ggamgus: LOL, no tilting back. I simply love this font and I'm trying to unify all my things Al-Qurayyah-related stuff with this font and format, to make a kind of "branding". I chose it because it blatantly evoques the city skyline, as ggamgus said.



The Emirate of Al-Qurayyah is an independent country situated on the Arabic Peninsula, next to the Persian Gulf. It became independent from the United Arab Emirates on year 1992 and it has experimented a similar growth like the neighbouring emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.



Al-Qurayyah boasts of the 15th largest oil reserves in the world, and thus, its economy is heavily oil-dependant. Nevertheless, during the last 20 years, the logistics, civil engineering, finance and tourism sectors have seen an skyrocketing growth; which relieves Al-Qurayyah of being dependant of only one industry.

This is why Al-Qurayyah relies on world-scale events in order to increase the importance of other sectors on its economy, specially civil engineering and tourism. Hosting the 24th ISC Session would provide a popularity boost to a nation which is still seeking for diversification. On this bid, Al-Qurayyah is presented as a...



This bid is divided in four different highlighted items:

1) ISC Session Venues
2) Transportation facilities
3) Accommodation facilities
4) Final speeches, given by:
   - Sheikh Rahim bin Al Attiyah, Emir of Al-Qurayyah
   - Daniel J. Alarcón, High Commissioner of the Union of Tekindustian Nations*.

So please, make yourselves at home and enjoy this trip around a vibrant nation, which has a lot to offer in order to organise an impressive ISC Session.

------------------------------------------------------------

The Union of Tekindustian Nations (UTN) is an alliance among the countries of the Principality of Barnanova, the State of Benson and the Emirate of Al-Qurayyah. This alliance grants economic, cultural and social ties between these three nations beyond the union membership these can have due their territorial placement.

@GreekMan: Thank you! I'm also looking forward of what's yet to see from your bid!



It can be seen on this map the placement of the main venues used for this ISC Session:



As can be seen, all the venues are on the CBD or on its surroundings. This ensures an easy connection by public transport (specially for journalists and media workers) and also, an extensive network of underground parking lots. These are going to host all the Organisation and VIPs cars during the event.

Let's take a closer look to the main venues.



Placed on the very heart of the city and the Emirate, our world-class Convention Center will be exclusively dedicated to host the ISC Session preliminary meetings (North and South Towers) and the final meeting (Central Hall), when the XIX Simlympics host city will be revealed. Both three buildings meet by far the minimum space, lighting and confort requirements to ensure frutiful meetings and relations among the ISC Delegates.

The visitors have a variety of choices for their meals at our Convention Center, especially the Dunes restaurant, at the top of South Tower.



The two official lunches on this ISC Session will be held at the restaurant at the top of one of the several five-star superior luxury hotels on this Emirate, the Princess Hotel. On its top floors, overlooking the city CBD and the whole emirate, the Ganduixer Restaurant is found. Owned by the several-times three-Michelin-stars winner, the Barnanovese chef Martí Sanahuja; this restaurant simply boasts the best Mediterranean/fusion cuisine out of the Mediterranean coasts. An extremely high standard of quality is achieved by importing fresh products every day from its respective production places and with a team of highly-skilled Barnanovese-born cooks and staff.



The media personnel can never be forgotten in these cases. The Al-Qurayyah University of Oil and Gas will open its doors to provide high-end facilities for the journalists coming from around the world to cover this event. All computer labs and seminar rooms will be free to be used in order to broadcast the signals beyond Al-Qurayyah.

Food is an integral part of this whole bid, and it's not forgotten in this case. Catering food, straight from the Dunes restaurant, will be delivered for breakfast, lunch and dinner to the university premises. And if this is not enough, the campus canteen and cafeteria will be open 24/7 in order to make easier these hard-working days.

@GreekMan: Thanks! Can't wait to see the rest of your bid also!



Transportation is a challenge in large cities, but it gets easier when it comes to Al-Qurayyah. The whole city is organized along its north-south axis given its geography. Let's see now how the ISC Session delegates and workers will reach the venues.



Our airport will be the first thing seen by the ISC Members coming to Al-Qurayyah. Four runways, five terminals, one cargo facility, seven parking lots, all combined under the Al-Qurayyah World Airport (AQW) name. Focus city for Emirates and Etihad airlines, and destined to be the alternative to DXB/DWC and AUH.


Interior panorama of TerminalOne.



The AirportLink concept is quite straightforward: from the airport to the CBD in only 2 minutes. No, we haven't left a zero there. With this state-of-the-art magnetic levitation super-fast train, one can cover the distance between the airport to the heart of Al-Qurayyah at an average speed of 250 km/h with a top speed of 320 km/h. The delegates' first trip on the pride of Al-Qurayyah will not be easily forgotten.



Two minutes after departing off Al-Qurayyah World Airport, the ISC Members will arrive to:



On this rail, AirportLink and bus hub, the newly arrived people can choose how to reach to their final destination in Al-Qurayyah. Taxis are really inexpensive on this city, but ISC Members will not need them, a fleet of cars will be waiting there, in order to carry them to their chosen hotels, which will be seen on the next update.

@111222333444: Thanks!
@K50: Sadly, I can't fit in this emirate the whole pack of venues needed to host the actual Summer Simlympics. Still, I have nice memories from the V Winter Simlympics, they took place only seven months ago!



Fortunately, three of the finest hotels in the Emirate of Al-Qurayyah decided to collaborate with the ISC Session organisation in order to provide world-class accomodation to the ISC Members coming to the city. All members and their companions will have the privilege of choosing rooms among the three following different hotels:



Again, the Princess Hotel makes its appearance on this presentation, this time, to talk about its hotel features. Five-star-luxury accomodation in an Arabesque style, for sure it will amaze all those looking for the best with an Al-Qurayyan touch. It is place on the city CBD, just two blocks far from the Convention Center. ISC Members will be able to reach the center both by organisation cars or by walk.



The Sky Hotel boasts European style interiors and decoration, on the city South District. Its rooms and facilities are five-star-quality, but what is beyond five-stars are the parties held every day at the huge terrace at the 10th floor. The place is known to be one of the finest clubs in the city, and of course, all rooms are soundproof, in order to guarantee the perfect rest of non-party guests.



The 1001 Nights Hotel and Casino Resort lies at the very end of the South District, very near the city's southern edge. Each one of its rooms is decorated with motifs relating to a tale compiled on the One Thousand and One Nights folk tales collection from the Islamic Golden Age. At the top of both buildings, the clubs Shahryar (right bottom) and Scheherazade (top left) can be found. The latter one is known to be the second-highest club in Al-Qurayyah, only surpassed by Zenith, at the top of Al-Burj Tower.

@111222333444, @RepublicMaster: Thank you! Now enjoy the last part of the bid!



And finally, it's time to hear the closing speeches from the designated authorities. First of all, the words coming from Sheikh Rahim bin Al Attiyah, Emir of Al-Qurayyah.



Dear ISC Members,

First of all, thanks for your attention to our ISC Session bid. The whole Emirate is behind this bid, and they are also thankful. This bid is the result of two aims:

On one hand, Al-Qurayyah wants to show itself to the world, to show what it is capable of doing. You have seen the skyscrapers, the golf courses, the harbours... everything that can be paid with money from the treasure we have beneath our feet. But what cannot be seen, unless it is experienced, is our capacity to organise world-class events, to show we are a reliable nation, that can say its world on today's world. We are overshadowed by larger, more powerful emirates, but we will not stay behind.

On the other hand, we want to share our Simlympic spirit with the rest of the world. Due to our tiny size and membership to the UTN, we cannot send our own athletes to the Simlympics, and it sometimes feel you're not there. In order to counteract this feeling, we want to be there, we want to be a part of the Simlympics, and an ISC Session is the way to.

There's not much to say other than what it has been said by the bid, again, thank you very much. Also, my congratulations to Columbia, you have been a great contestant. Let the best win!
And now, the words from the High Comissioner for the Union of Tekindustian Nations, Daniel J. Alarcón:



ISC Members, Al-Qurayyans, viewers...

I am really proud of you, Emir, and proud of Al-Qurayyah.

Not the first time I say these words, this last Feburary I had to say the same to Monique McKenzie, Governor of the State of Benson after the V Winter Simlympics; and some years ago I had to say this to HSH the Princess Victoria III in Barnanova for their successful 17th ISC Session organisation. Now, Emir, it's your turn.

Let's be honest. The UTN is a really strange union. A Mediterranean nation, a landlocked state nearing the rockies and an oil-fueled emirate. Not even the most optimistic person would have said this union would bring any profits. But it's bringing them without a doubt. All three nations are learning from each other, are expanding their horizons and are trading goods, knowledge and culture. And, if this bid is successful, they all three will have their small place on the Simlympics history, way beyond the athletes from all nations competing united under the Barnanovese flag.

Obviously, deciding wheter to take part on any Simlympic event is a decision of each nation, but from the UTN we are happy and proud to see how our integrating nations have an ambition of being better and showing the world what they have in store.

It's been great to work with all of you guys, to make this bid possible. Good luck!
