Having established industry-leading conferences in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as part of our Leaders in Construction series, we have taken the decision to tap demand from the Egyptian market by launching a half-day conference to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the North African country.
While we are extremely excited about this upcoming conference, Construction Week is also delighted to reveal that two of Egypt’s largest construction stakeholders have also confirmed their participation for the event.
Hassan Allam have been named our Platinum Sponsor for the conference, while Orascom Construction will be our Gold Sponsor.
Set to be held at the JW Marriott in Cairo from 10am (EGY), the conference will comprise a keynote speech and four panel discussions.
The keynote speech will be delivered from a high-profile member of Egypt’s construction industry to discuss the current landscape of the North African country’s built environment.
Following the keynote speech, the first panel will delve into The Evolution of New Cities in Egypt where we will hear from some of the major players who are building one of the world’s largest urban developments – Egypt’s New Administrative Capital – and explore what it takes to build a smart and sustainable city of the future.
For the second panel, we will be analysing The Opportunities for Water Projects and how construction stakeholders are contributing to the sustainable development of the water sector in Egypt. We will also explore how Egypt’s desalination plants are supporting the country’s economic growth and water security in the long-term.
As we move into the afternoon, the penultimate panel of the conference will discuss the ever-growing Growth of PPP’s within Egypt. Our esteemed panel will debate how PPPs will provide a model that allows governments to continue developing strategic projects and services in Egypt without the need to increase direct state capital spending.
For the final discussion, we will look into Egypt’s acceleration of its infrastructure sector. Digging into the details, our panel will discuss the up and coming pipeline of project’s including the Cairo metro line and the New Administrative Capital Airport.
Additionally for the final panel, we will explore how Egypt is ramping up construction across its transport sector to promote tourism and build its economy, while also exploring how modular construction methods are changing the dynamics for infrastructure development.
The Leaders in Construction Egypt conference will be moderated by Construction Week’s editor Ashley Williams.
