High-Level MENA Delegation Scheduled for First-of-its-Kind Visit to ‘Islamic Science Rediscovered’ exhibition in United States

The National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) and the Union of Arab ICT Associations (IJMA3-USA) are leading a high-level delegation of Arab government officials and business leaders to the “Ingenious Innovations: Islamic Science Rediscovered” exhibition at The Tech Museum in San Jose, California.

The January 16 visit will include more than 50 senior officials and private sector representatives from 13 Arab nations, marking the first visit of its kind to the world renowned traveling exhibition, which is also known as “Sultans of Science”. “Delegates from the Middle East will be enthralled to know the scientific breakthroughs of a remarkable era, which was one of the greatest in the world.

History text books refer to events when Europe slumbered in a period which is commonly known as the Dark Ages, but few people are aware of the tremendous contributions Muslim scholars made in science and technology during the Golden Age of the Islam (7th – 17th Centuries) which helped pave the way for the European Renaissance,” said, Ludo Verheyen, CEO, MTE Studios.

“We are delighted to provide our guests with an opportunity to participate in an exclusive viewing of this remarkable exhibition at The Tech Museum and to find out more about the scientific achievements of the Muslim Civilisation. We look forward to the tour, which has been popular in the USA and Canada since it was first exhibited in New Jersey,” said David Hamod, President and CEO of the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce. Designed to unearth the scientific know-how of an Islamic Golden Age, the exhibition covers main fields of Muslim achievements, from mathematics to navigation, astronomy, medicine, instrument making, fine utilitarian technology, engineering, optics, architecture and flight. It will be displayed at The Tech Museum until the end of February.

“We look forward to the high profile delegates’ visit, and we appreciate NUSACC’s initiative to give this exposure and experience to their guests. The exhibition underscores the roots of Silicon Valley’s innovations, and we would be delighted to work jointly with NUSACC in the future again,” added Verheyen.
