One of the goals of the conference was to equally enjoy the cultural and historic aspects of the host nation. Guests were able to join special trips to the city's premiere locations for a fun-filled afternoon. Many memories were made and shared over the course of the sightseeing tour of Karachi.
Conference attendees gathered in the venue lobby for a bus trip to Karachi's iconic Mazaar-e-Qaid, the final resting place of the founder of Pakistan, Qaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. The group posed for pictures and then entered the mausoleum to witness the changing of the guard and pay their respects to the Father of Pakistan.
After the trip to Mazaar-e-Qaid, the group travelled to visit another of Karachi's highlights, the Mausoleum of Abduallah Shah Ghazi. Abdullah Shah Ghazi, an eight-century Muslim was a direct descendant of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and is buried in Clifton in Karachi. The shrine is frequented by thousands annually, and is a must-visit for visitors to Karachi.
