With the GCC construction sector on a strong growth trajectory – forecasts suggest it will outperform the wider economy in the short to medium term – and with the wider built environment accounting for around 40% of the world's global greenhouse gas emissions, there’s increasing demand for a major sector overhaul. In a new report from 6WResearch the intelligent building sector is being championed as a solution.
Such is the clamor for change that Messe Frankfurt Middle East has successfully launched Intelligent Building Middle East, alongside Light Middle East and Intersec creating MENA’s largest gathering for the entire building eco-system.
The trio combine to produce a powerhouse of knowledge sharing for industry professionals, system integrators, installers, governments, developers and users to explore the advanced products, latest innovations and technology solutions needed to drive a smart, safe, secure, and sustainable future.
