What was the conclusion of this Event Tracking?

As seen in the world cloud there was a large variety of focus words, with of course Gulfood being the most used. The main words following this are “CDNbeefexperience”,”Halal”, “Dubai” and “food” ; however some of these were to be expected with reference to the location and the event itself. There were also an interesting mentions of drinks such as “coffee” and “maquidrink” showing it is just not a food event.

These word clouds are great at understanding what it is that attendees are talking about and what they find to be most interesting from this event.
