The Middle Eastern Summit (MES) is a conference supported the Middle East Institute of the National University of Singapore. By exclusively featuring Middle Eastern countries and discussing pertinent issues through their viewpoints, MES deviates from the normal Model United Nations conference while still utilising the normal MUN protocol.

The nature of NTU MUN makes it very relevant to the student communities, members of which are the potential leaders of tomorrow.
