MEP Conference: hot topics dominate 2020 agenda

Published: 5 April 2020 - 5 a.m.

MEP Middle East’s annual conference brings together some of the sharpest minds working in the sector – and the 2020 edition is shaping up nicely to live up to expectations of past events.

We’ve put together a packed agenda of pressing talking points ahead of the latest instalment of the conference series on 24 June at Grosvenor House, Dubai.

From engineering net-zero carbon systems and effective flood and rainwater design, to the changing attitudes to women in MEP and transitioning towards a digitalised future, no stone will be left unturned by our panel of industry figureheads and expert keynote speakers.

Confirmed speakers on the day so far include managing director at AESG, Phillipa Grant; associate public health engineer at BuroHappold Engineering, Ashveen Jeetun; and associate electrical services engineer for Cundall, Bushra Anwar.

Of course, there are still more experts to add to the bill so keep an eye on our website for further announcements.

Sandwiched between the keynote speakers will be two panel discussions that will set aside time to explore the most pressing challenges for the MEP sector and wider construction industry in 2020, not least the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has brought the world as a whole to a crawl.

More than 150 government bodies, developers, MEP contractors, consultants, engineers and architects are expected to converge to share their ideas, opinions, and expertise, with our panel of industry professionals on hand to answer questions throughout the day.

Throw in the opportunity to network with major players from across the MEP landscape and it makes for an event not to be missed.

Editor of MEP Middle East, Tom Oxtoby, said he was looking forward to the event, and relished the chance to build on last year’s successful edition.

He said: “During my time in the editor’s chair I have come to appreciate the influence that MEP Middle East has in the region and among professionals working in MEP.

“So I am delighted to be inviting some of the industry’s sharpest minds to join us for the 2020 edition of the MEP Middle East Conference, and look forward to sharing ideas as how best to navigate the current climate and chart a course for a prosperous 2020 and beyond.”
