Saudi Arabia’s National Transformation Program (NTP) and vision 2030 demonstrate an intention to engage with the private sector and to invite investment in real estate, mixed use developments and tourism. The Kingdom seeks to position itself as a premium regional hub for business partnerships. To enable them to compete with other international cities it is essential for landscape and public realm investment to be prioritised.
Landscape project investment is being made in Riyadh and Jeddah with a combination of streetscaping, hardscaping, softscaping, irrigation and drainage initiatives. The Riyadh Metro ($22.5 billion), King Abdullah Economic City ($27 billion), Jeddah Tower (US$1.23 billion), Jeddah Economic City (US$20 billion), Mayasem, all require landscaping and public realm investment. Future Landscape & Public Realm KSA include landscape experts from Cracknell, Saudi Diyar Consultants, ARUP, Khatib & Alami who support development of landscape projects for these key projects.
Future Landscape & Public Realm KSA 2017 will provide a platform for government project owners, planners and policy makers to interact with developers, landscape designers, urban planners, contractors and solution providers to address challenges and identify opportunities for improvement in KSA’s public realm. Project insight and planned investment will be presented to highlight opportunities for cooperation, innovation, technology and best practice.

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.
