Marine Data Infrastructure GCC – 15-16 February 2016 – Dubai, UAE

Dubai is leading the GCC’s shift towards the shore and is expected to be among the top seven maritime centres in the world by 2020, according to a survey by Menon Business Economics Group, which quoted a statement from the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA). Since Dubai’s hosting right for Expo 2020 was announced, sizeable investments have been made by government bodies and renowned developers to increase the Emirate’s coastline. These include projects such as RTA’s $544m (AED2bn) water canal project on Sheikh Zayed Road, and Nakheel’s Deira Islands development, expected to add 40km to Dubai’s coastline, including 21km of beachfront.

With more projects to be announced in the coming months, the importance of integrating existing technical capabilities and information into a framework for GCC marine data infrastructure rises.

With this indispensable need in mind, Advanced Conferences & Meetings is launching ‘Marine Data Infrastructure GCC’ conference on the 15th and 16th of February 2016, in Dubai UAE. This specialized conference will address how to maximize access to marine data through the use of highly advanced technology and systems.

Being the first event of its kind in the region, Marine Data Infrastructure GCC will bring together marine data management experts, regulators, maritime sector stakeholders and technology providers to discuss ocean monitoring and data collection techniques, best practices and the latest technological advancements.

Marine Data Infrastructure GCC will provide the perfect platform to unveil upcoming project opportunities and spot investment opportunities in the marine sector, streamline legislation and policy developments in the marine environment, share best practices and provide case studies on implementation of technological advancements
