LONDON – Market Publishers Ltd is pleased to call for participation in the 2nd Annual Middle East Smart Cities Summit, happening on the 9-10 December 2013 in Doha, Qatar.
Today, the Middle East region is experiencing and responding to impacts stemming from a steadily urbanizing population – a result of which, a process of retrofitting existing cities with new and modern urban intelligence has begun to take shape. Some of the leading cities within the region have started to push this concept further and are exploring how smart cities can add a value within a strategic framework and could help to address the scarcity of resources, reduce cost of living, reduce environmental impact, increase safety and make people’s lives more comfortable and easy.
Fleming Gulf's 2nd Annual Middle East Smart Cities Summit will aim at addressing the need for development of smart city projects in the region. With primary focus on controlling energy and resource consumption, adapting to a changing urban infrastructure and lifestyle and meeting society's expectations in city planning, the summit will host leading speakers from in and around the region who are turning smart city plans to reality.
