Bringing together construction companies, governments, technology firms, and design & engineering firms to collaborate and adapt
The Middle East continues to develop a reputation as an increasingly important hub for the development of smart cities and the implementation of smart technologies in urban spaces.
Stimulated by powerful national visions, construction spending is surging across the region led by the huge masterplan developments. But as it propels new opportunities of growth, the surge in activity also raises new challenges. New factors are reshaping the way that the smart building projects are being planned, delivered and operated.
In the quest to create a better, more agile and adaptive smarter construction eco-system, the Smart Building Summit will gather the leading voices from across the construction value chain to showcase some of the latest research and innovations driving improvements in productivity, quality, reliability, cost-savings, waste-reduction, and energy efficiency and how you can employ these methods in your projects.
Join the conversation as we explore how new technology is transforming project delivery, re-defining design and construction landscape.
