Who attends any TESOL Arabia events in the UAE? Do many teachers make the effort to go to any of their events (like the March annual conference or any mini-conferences)?

I always attended (from Kuwait, Oman, etc). But admittedly it was mostly for the social portion - meeting up with friends around the Gulf. For people looking to change jobs and stay in the area, it does have employers doing interviews. I have known quite a few people who picked up new jobs there.

Dear titanicman,
4 or 5 people usually go every year from the IPA in Riyadh ( when they tire of the Kingdom and are looking for a less restricted life-style ) and I know of about a half-dozen who got jobs there and are now teaching at various places in the UAE.
Regards,
John
