Leaders in Architecture MENA

20th -21st of April, 2015. Venue Dubai, UAE

Leaders in Architecture MENA The Middle East is set to experience unparralled construction boom with unprecedented number of construction projects planned over the next 20 years. EC Harris estimated over 117 major programmes planned up to 2030, costing in excess of $1 trillion US ( Major project is defined as US$1 billion in cost to deliver ) across a combination of retail, real estate, leisure, health and education asset developments as well as transport, communication and supporting social infrastructure systems. Over three quarters of the major programmes analyzed are valued at over $10 billion US including ‘new city’ developments. The $640 billion US to be spent in the six years between 2014 and 2019 on major programmes does not include the other infrastructure and project commitments in the region ( those under $1 billion US in value). The success of the architecture business is directly depend on the development and growth of region’s economy in general and construction industry in particular. The new construction boom lifts architecture business in high growth markets, leaving both local and international

architecture compete for piece of the market share. As the government and private developers’ criteria’s are becoming more demanding, it is imperative for the architects to not only be able to understand the most cutting edge designs, technologies and most sustainable practices but also strive to support the ambitions economical & political development strategies behind the growth. 4th Global edition of the Leaders in Architecture Summit is the region’s largest event dedicated to developing, celebrating and connecting architects, interior designers and senior decision makers from leading international architectural practices, contractors, developers, government officials, engineers and solution providers. Gathering over 300 industry professionals from across the region, the summit provides a unique opportunity to learn from and get inspired by leaders, luminaries, and legends from within and outside architecture who will share their insights on the opportunities, challenges, and possibilities that architects firms face.

Education Sessions Highlights Our agenda was carefully developed to address the pressing issues facing the architecture business within the region. The sessions headlines are

Success by Design Despite loving their profession, architects often struggle with business operations. Even though they are very passionate about their work and projects, many find it challenging to find clients, managing the competition, implement sales, marketing & PR tactics, navigate the bidding process and in general advance as a company. Led by visionaries with proven track records these sessions will explore everything you need to know about about marketing, risks, mentoring, employee relations, social media and professional advocacy.

New Ideas for the Architecture of Tomorrow Architecture trends reflect a shift in the mentality of modern society. Portability, simplicity and planet preservation are at the forefront of architects’ minds. The upcoming year presents numerous challenges to architects, especially in solving issues of sustainability and climate change, an ever increasing income gap in our largest cities, and planning for the smart growth of cities. Led by industry trendsetters and “starchitects” these session will enlighten on the latest news and development in the international arena. Experience firsthand new ideas and trends that will influence the lives of those for whom you are designing.

Sustainable Architecture Architecture presents a unique challenge in the field of sustainability. Construction projects typically consume large amounts of materials, produce tons of waste, and often involve weighing the preservation of buildings that have historical significance against the desire for the development of newer, more modern designs. Join the most influential ‘green’ architects to find out what’s new in building science, learn about new tools of minimizing non – renewable resource consumption, and explore concepts in clean energy and climate responsive design.

The Powerhouse of Architecture World Architecture is shaped by many factors including political, economic, social challenges and outlook. This session will provides a platform for meeting the most powerful leaders shaping the industry and provides space of reflection, presents ideas and concerns regarding some of the most sensitive areas in business.
