The Step Conference 2016 took place at the Dubai International Marine Club April 4th and 5th, 2016. As with each event I cover in the Middle East (Beirut, Cairo, and now Dubai), I’m always astounded by the diversity of attendees. And the more and more time I spend in the region, the more I think that the Middle East is a perfect area for such international gatherings. More or less halfway between Europe and Asia, it’s not the shortest flight from London (or Hong Kong), but completely palatable, and obviously a big enough draw for both markets.

Ray Dargham and his team put together a fantastic event which saw a number of top level speakers, and a huge highlight, I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Bassem Youssef, the Jon Stewart of the Middle East.

I particularly enjoyed the healthy mix of technology, culture, and music. The opening night festivities featured a number of seriously talented local musicians, as well as some highly tasty food truck edibles. Likewise, seeing Daniel Brusilovsky tell the tale of how the tech industry mindset and spirit helped bring the then flailing Golden State Warriors back to prominence…and some would say put them on the path to becoming NBA champions, was a true highlight.

Likewise, meeting and photographing Battle Rapper Dizaster, and capturing him in a pensive moment on stage was a true highlight. For throwing his aggression down through lyrics, he’s actually a really nice, friendly, and welcome guy. Always great to see music being used in the most positive of ways.

All in all, a great time was had by all in Dubai, and with a highly motivated and eager team, I can’t wait to see what this growing organisation cooks up for next years event!

Enjoy, and until the next shoot – Dan
