The stop in Cairo highlighted the fact that the city is home to some of the most-recognisable structures on earth – the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and other antiquities.

The tour also offered visitors the ability to understand the future vision of the Sheraton Hotels' brand experience. Guests also got a peek at the upcoming redesign of Sheraton via a dynamic projection mapping experience that will show visitors how the brand will utilise space redesign and curated amenities and services to enable gathering and productivity. The tour also featured Sheraton’s community voices programming that invites Cairo personalities, businesses and groups to join at the hotel during the weekend to give talks, share demos and create presentations for guests and locals.

The complimentary programming featured thought leaders who lead in-depth discussions and presentations in their areas of expertise on November 9 and 10.
