Welcome to
MIDDLE EAST
SMART LANDSCAPE SUMMIT 2015

LEADING EVENT ON SUSTAINABLE LANDSCAPE SOLUTIONS

28 - 29 April 2015 | Sofitel Dubai the Palm Resort & Spa
Dubai, United Arab Emirates


Under the patronage of
H.E. Hussain Nasser Lootah
Director General, Dubai Municipality

The Middle East Smart Landscape Summit 2015 will take place on the 28th and 29th April 2015 at the Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa. In its 3rd year running, the summit continues to attract over 400 senior level landscape architects, government authorities, urban planners, developers, environmental specialists and contractors from across the GCC, committed to the development of sustainable landscapes across the Middle East region.


With the aim of turning Dubai into a Green Paradise in time for the World Expo 2020, there has been a string of major investments towards urban landscape development. Maintaining a strong irrigation network is vital for the development of sustainable landscape projects and with this in mind, the Dubai Municipality has earmarked over Dh6 billion towards soft landscaping and expanding the irrigation network. As a result of these major greening initiatives, there will be significant growth opportunities for the landscape sector in the Middle East.

To create urban spaces that are verdant and sustainable in the arid regions of the Middle East, focus needs to shift towards Smart and Innovative Ecological landscaping. With a major emphasis on the latest developments in landscaping technologies, the
Middle East Smart Landscape Summit is the leading platform for business networking and knowledge sharing for the region’s landscape industry.
