Milestone event is the first Big Project ME summit to be held outside the UAE
Big Project Middle East (BPME) has announced a landmark event for the brand – the launch of its first ever summit outside the UAE, with the Construction Intel Summit – KSA in Riyadh on November 23, 2022.
Initially launched as a virtual event in 2021, the Construction Intel Summit – KSA is an in-depth look at the challenges and realities facing the construction and real estate development sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, featuring the leading experts, decision-makers, and innovators operating in the Kingdom and the region.
Following on from two successful virtual events, the Big Project ME editorial team felt that the time was right to launch a live, in-person event at the heart of the Kingdom, especially given the massive surge in construction activity within the country over the last couple of years.
Taking place in Riyadh, the live event will bring together speakers from developers, contractors, consultants, solutions providers and more from across the Kingdom and the region. It will feature panel discussions, presentations and networking opportunities.
Registration is free for construction professionals wishing to attend.
“Work on a number of large-scale, iconic construction projects is well underway in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as part of its Vision 2030 blueprint. While the Kingdom’s leadership aims to transform the country, it also wants to be mindful of what this transition means for its people, its culture and its environment,” said Gavin Davids, Head of Editorial and Content for Big Project ME.
“Therefore, it is essential that the global and regional construction industry equips itself with the knowledge and insight to grasp the unprecedented opportunities presented to them by Saudi Arabia’s transformation.
“This is why the Construction Intel Summit KSA is coming to Riyadh on November 23, 2022 – our speakers and presenters will not only inform and educate attendees about the massive opportunities that remain across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but will also share their own experiences and knowledge with attendees”
While the event will aim to cover a wide range of topics, Davids highlighted four key themes for the summit:
- Visionary Designs: Design Considerations and Procurement Strategies to achieve Vision 2030
- Project Interfaces: Integrating Multiple Contract Packages and Sequencing Workflows on the Kingdom’s gigaprojects
- Energy Transition: Providing direction and unification while driving Saudi Arabia’s Energy Transition process
- Enabling Saudization: Providing pathways of growth and development to Saudi Arabia’s burgeoning talent pool of Saudi construction professionals
Davids noted that the agenda and speakers for the event will appear on the website in the coming weeks. He asked interested attendees and participants to visit: https://2022.constructionintelsummit.com for more information about the summit and to stay up to date with the latest announcements and developments with regards to the Summit.
