BPME team announces 8 May as new date for Critical Infrastructure Summit

The event was postponed due to unfavourable weather conditions across the UAE

The Big Project Middle East (BPME) team has announced its Critical Infrastructure Summit is now scheduled to take place on 8 May at the Two Seasons Hotel in Dubai. The event was previously scheduled to take place on 17 April but was postponed due to extremely unfavourable weather conditions across the UAE.

“Following alerts from the National Centre of Meteorology on 16th April, which noted that ‘hazardous weather events’ were expected to continue until 6pm on 17th April, and authorities urging residents to stay at home during this period, the BPME team felt that postponing the event was the only responsible thing to do to ensure the safety of speakers and delegates,” said Jason Saundalkar, Head of Content at Big Project Middle East.

Scheduled to take place on 8 May, the event will shine a light on the region’s infrastructure, including airports, seaports, road and rail transportation systems and data centres. The event will comprise a mix of panel discussions and high-level presentations.

At present, MENA regional governments are working with the private sector to either expand or develop all new infrastructure, in line with changing market appetites, new requirements, and even the threat of climate change. Data from Mordor Intelligence said that the Middle East and Africa infrastructure market is valued at US $48bn and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2023 and 2028.

The 2024 Critical Infrastructure Summit is supported by:

Gold Sponsor: KEO International Consultants
Strategic Content Partner: ALEC
Silver Sponsor: AECOM
Endorsed by: The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), RICS
