The ABANA Award Dinner has long been the premier U.S. event for the Arab and international finance industry. Held in New York City, in concurrence with the World Bank and IMF annual meetings, the event brings together over 400 guests to celebrate an exemplary business leader.
Past recipients of ABANA’s Achievement Award include: Farouk A. Bastaki, David M. Rubenstein, Laurence Fink, Hutham S. Olayan, Mohammed Ali Alabbar, Bader Al Sa’ad, Muhammed Al-Jasser, Mohammed El-Erian, Faisal Al-Ayyar, Lubna Olayan, Richard Debs and Abdul Majeed Shoman.
In order to attend The 2021 Achievement Award Dinner on December 8, 2021, ABANA requires all guests to be cleared for COVID-19. To facilitate this process, ABANA has partnered with VOW Digital Health.
To COVID-clear, you must provide Proof of Negative for COVID-19 by way of a Fully Completed Vaccine Record AND either a PCR Test (taken no earlier than December 5) OR a Rapid Antigen Test (taken no earlier than December 7) from a Pharmacy or Testing/Healthcare Facility. No at-home tests are accepted. Such arrangements have been implemented for your COVID-19 health and safety; thus, no exceptions will be made.
NOTE: Each guest is required to have their own account with VOW. Do not upload information for your spouse or plus-one as it will be rejected. If you wish to set up an account for someone else, simply log out of your account, and then create another by clicking Create Account.
