“Welcome back”… to Sharm El Sheik in Egypt. Our 50th anniversary will take place in the beautiful city Sharm El Sheik. A city located in South Sinai Governorate which is on the coastal strip along the beautiful Red Sea.
Its population is approximately 80,000. Sharm El Sheikh is the administrative hub of Egypt’s South Sinai Governorate, which includes the smaller coastal towns of Dahab and Nuweiba, as well as the mountainous interior Mount Sinai.
The city and holiday resort is a significant center for main tourism in Egypt, while also attracting many international conferences and diplomatic meetings. The city has hosted a number of important Middle Eastern peace conferences, including the agreement to restore Palestinian self-rule over the Gaza Strip on the 4th September 1999. The green city Sharm el Sheik is also called the “City of Peace”!
Already in 2019 and 2021 we were able to produce the Finale in Sharm El Sheik and both events in cooperation with the Sunrise Resort and Cruises Group. Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman from the Philippines met the South Sinai Governor Major Khaled Fouda who attended our 2019 Finale. In 2021 we were able to stage – for its first time ever – the 49 anniversary at the new Museum of Sharm el Sheik. The pageant took place with support of the the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, an egyptian government organization which served to protect and preserve the heritage and ancient histroy of Egypt. The idea for the museum was first suggested in 2006, and in 2017 the construction was completed.
The museum’s display scenario broadly reflects the different aspects of human civilization and culture in general, while shedding light specifically on ancient Egyptian civilization. This is done through a selection of historical objects that were carefully chosen from museum storage rooms.In the Hall of Civilization are displayed the beautiful inner and outer coffins of Isetemheb, the wife of the high-priest of AmunPanedjem II, who was herself a priestess of Isis, Min, and Horus in Akhmim. Notable also are Isetemheb’scanopicjars,papyrus collection, cosmetics,and perfume vessels, the head of a statue of Hatshepsut, and tanagrafigurines depicting women wearing a variety of dresses, in addition to objects that display Sinai’s cultural heritage.
