Event serves as platform to display green building solutions from across the region

His Excellency Khalfan Saeed Juma Al Kaabi, the first Vice Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, inaugurated the Arabian Construction Week (ACW) 2010, on May 24. Touted to be Abu Dhabi’s only dedicated construction exhibition and regional summit for sustainable and innovative construction, it brought together over 200 exhibitors.

The three-day event, covering an over 8,000 squaremetre area at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), featured four exhibitions, including the Green Building Middle East, Future-Build Middle East, Building Machinery Middle East and Civil Engineering Middle East. In addition, two regional summits – Arabian World Construction Summit (AWCS) and the Green Building Middle East Summit and Expo were also held.

The Green Building Middle East showcased sustainable construction products, while Future-Build Middle East was a platform for new technology and innovative construction projects. Civil Engineering Middle East, meanwhile, was meant for exchanging solutions for major infrastructure and transport projects, and at Building Machinery Middle East, industry brands and dealers displayed cranes, excavators, heavy vehicles, machine tools, concrete, as well as waste and recycling equipment. The AWCS and Green Building Middle East Summit witnessed international spokespersons analysing issues faced by the region’s construction industry.

According to the organisers, MECOM Forums/Clarion Events, ACW served as a platform for companies to display a range of green building solutions, as well as innovative engineering products and services to buyers from across the Middle East and the neighbouring regions.

In addition to the conference programme, ACW acted as a pre-tender sourcing forum for the region’s existing and potential construction and infrastructure projects, the organisers stated.

Christopher Hudson, Managing Director of Mecom Forums, dubbed ACW as a first-of-its-kind event in the region, which brought together industry leaders and policy makers.

ACW was supported by MEED. Shell Lubricants and the Abu Dhabi Department of Municipal Affairs were the headline sponsors.
