Middle East Smart Landscape Summit 2018

As Dubai continues to witness a rise in construction projects, there is also a marked growth in the investment of green open spaces, golf courses, sports stadiums and public parks & gardens. As part of its efforts to support and achieve the sustainable growth of green spaces and encourage a better quality of life amongst the residents, the government of Dubai is investing in building the city’s largest public park in DubaiLand which is said to be as big as London’s Hyde Park.
Against this backdrop, the 6th edition of the Middle East Smart Landscape Summit 2018 will be held on 7th and 8th May 2018 in Dubai. As the region’s leading event on landscape solutions, the summit aims to bring to life the trends and developments in the industry. The summit agenda lays emphasis on opportunities and challenges faced in turning the city green along with a focus on playground equipment and structures.
