About LightingTech Abu Dhabi Summit

Abu Dhabi is one of the most active cities in the region that is investing in sustainable development and a significant part of this investment is focused on energy efficiency in buildings and extension landscape lighting.

The Abu Dhabi has taken a strong stance on integrating its infrastructure through their smart city’s integration pilot and subsequently continues to retrofit existing buildings to deliver on its promises to reduce energy consumption by 20%.  Initiatives such as the Estidama Pearl rating for new sustainable buildings have had a positive impact on the future creation of multiple standards for energy efficient technologies.   

LightingTech Abu Dhabi Summit calls public authorities, project owners developers, design architects, planners and lighting innovators to speak about the industry trends, planned projects and requirements for delivering energy efficiency while meeting quality standards. Abu Dhabi remains a strong market as it moves towards sustainability and develops its own sophisticated market led by local and international expertise.

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.
