Insight Magazine held their anniversary party last month at Tamarai,

marking Insight’s 14 years of success in celebration of its clients’s up port
and loyalty. The event also marked the release of the 6th edition of the
Best Of Cairo Guide 2011.
Guests were dressed up in formal black tie and red dresses, as the
theme was such to match the season’s festivities. The combination
of the magazine’s favoured guests dressed to the nines, gathered at
the hottest place in town brought off the absolute success to a great
celebration. nina george
