Leading players from the construction and the engineering sector will take part in the third edition of Arabian Tunnelling Conference (ATC15) to be held in Dubai, UAE, next month.
The event, which runs from November 23 to 25, will be held against the backdrop of mega projects linked to Expo 2020, said the event organisers.
More than 600 participants from a cross section of government, municipalities, consultants, contractor and suppliers will be at Grand Hyatt Dubai to attend the conference.
Top experts and professionals from various fields within the tunnelling sector will discuss key topics on design and planning of underground spaces, security and safety standards, maintenance of tunnels and risk assessment, said Maged Hanna, the general manager, Society of Engineers-UAE, the organiser.
“We have seen an increase in number of attendance from the previous editions of ATC and now that UAE is becoming a hot spot for tunnel construction, we are expecting even more attendees from around the globe,” stated Hanna.
Leading international speakers and experts will also share case studies of international projects to enhance the knowledge and encourage co-operation among the audience, she added.
Steen Jakobsen, the director for Dubai Business Events – the Official Convention Bureau (DBE), said: “We are delighted to welcome the Arabian Tunneling Conference and Exhibition and we are looking forward to showcase this remarkable city to the delegates who will be attending this event.”
The other highlights include a special forum for young engineers to learn and network with industry experts, said the organisers.
