About the 2nd Annual Smart Parking UAE 2016

The 2nd annual Smart Parking Conference is dedicated to the design, optimization and management of car parks and parking facilities in the UAE.

Dedicated to support UAE’s vision of becoming a smart, healthy and livable city, Smart Parking UAE 2016 will be exploring the design, optimization and management of car parks and parking facilities in the UAE to maximize profitability, achieve superior customer service and sustainability standards.

Huge projects like The Dubai Mall of the World, Dubai World Central Airport, and other mega developments needs parking facilities, require careful urban master-planning and design, and also new technologies. Smart parking technologies and innovations also offer opportunities for better management, optimization and revenue generation for building owners, community managers, local governments and other car park operators.

Along with Emirate’s ambition to be in the top 10 most sustainable cities in the world, UAE is a clear candidate for expanding its robotic/sustainable parking footprint. This is exemplified by the fact that Dubai has the world’s biggest automated parking facility in the DIFC, which has made it to the Guinness World Records.

Smart Parking UAE will also discuss master planning considerations surrounding the increasing population, and new technologies which are facilitating ‘automated’ car parks to achieve maximum revenue generation, customer service and sustainability standards.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
