Smart Cities World MENA 2011

Partnership Prospectus

Investment, development and innovation for developers and all urban stakeholders



$107 billion worth of regional urban development projects are ongoing in the Middle East. Embracing the “smart city” concept is high on the agenda for government, developers and investors. The Pearl Qatar, King Abdullah Economic City, Dubai Pearl and the Palm Island Jumeirah are some such examples.

Cities are systems of systems, and there is emerging opportunity to introduce digital nervous systems, intelligent responsiveness, and optimization at every level of system integration – from that of individual devices and appliances to that of buildings, and ultimately to that of complete cities and urban regions.

Furthermore, through cross-communication among digital nervous systems – for example those of a city’s mobility systems and its energy systems – it becomes possible to coordinate the operation of different systems to achieve significant efficiencies and sustainability benefits.


Smart Cities World MENA 2011 is where leading players come to find solutions and ideas. If you are in the business of providing world-class solutions you need to be here.

Smart Cities World MENA 2011 actively facilitates meetings with key prospects. With our CONTACT and SPEED networking systems we create more genuine business contacts than any comparable event.


The proposal explores possibilities for new products, services and business models that can make cities intelligently responsive to the needs and desires of their inhabitants.


The United Arab Emirates event will provide a unique experience integrating;

• A strategic conference where C-level executives gather to discuss strategies and roadmap towards the development of smart cities.

• Dedicated conference streams with content targeted at ministries, government asset owners, developers and investors.

• A practical briefing day on M2M applications and opportunities that offers a strategic and technical seminar on the role of M2M in smart city development.

• Interactive showcase area where developers and technology providers introduce products and solutions to ready buyers in MENA.
