About 2nd Annual Smart parking KSA 2017

The inaugural Smart Parking KSA 2016 was successfully held at the Movenpick, Riyadh in October. With the support of the General Authority for Civil Aviation and Jeddah Development Urban Regeneration Company, this event gathered more than 120 delegates over the course of two days to discuss how to advance car parks and parking facilities in KSA.

The seminar opened with different keynote addresses from Ministry of Housing, General Authority for Civil Aviation and Jeddah Development Urban Regeneration Company to share with the audience the latest opportunity and development of parking in Saudi Arabia.

International and local experts gathered along with the public sector to discuss the projects in the pipeline and how to utilise new technology and advanced design strategies in parking.

Join us at the 2nd Annual Smart Parking KSA 2017 seminar to learn more about the opportunities available in Riyadh, Makkah, Medina, Jeddah and other cities across the country to improve and optimise their parking facilities. This demand for increased parking facilities requires careful urban master-planning and design, but new technologies also offer opportunities for better management, optimization and revenue generation for building owners, community managers, local governments and other car park operators.

Bringing together the designers, contractors, materials and technology providers with building and community owners and managers, event organizers and other car park and parking facility operators, Smart Parking KSA will explore the design and construction considerations of car parks and parking facilities, as well as the new smart technologies which can lead to the optimization of these facilities for both the end-users and their operators.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
