Just because this Friday, July 3rd, the 2009 Imagine Cup World Finals will be officially opened at……. the Citadel in Cairo!!! What?!? Yes, that’s right, originally built in 810 A.D and it looks a bit like……

Over the following days over four hundred students!! from around the world will compete in nine categories.

If you are asking yourself why you should compete in next years Imagine Cup? …….The World Festival on the last day will take place at the foot of the Pyramids in Giza on the night of July 7th. 

As we’re counting down this week, we thought that some photos of building the World Festival stage, would set the stage nicely ;)

Some words of the organization:

The Imagine Cup Worldwide Finals is meant to be the experience of a lifetime and Cairo provides a poetic backdrop with its ancient treasures. The history of Egypt serves as a reminder of where humanity has been and is the ideal compliment for the cutting edge technology solutions that will be presented during the event. Old world meets new; the past meets the future.
