Host City

“Welcome back”… to Sharm El Sheik in Egypt. Our 51 anniversary will take place once more 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, 2021 and 2022 we were able to produce our Finals in Sharm El Sheik and all three 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. Last year in 2022 we celebrated our Finale together the new opening of the “Tal Avenue” from Sunrise Resorts. From 28 November until 17 December we will enjoy the beautyful Resorts from Sunrise and the Hospitality of the people of Egypt.
