Following the hugely successful launch of the first and second edition the 3rd annual Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Qatar event was under the support of Public Works Authority and it discussed the updates and the latest opportunities associated with Ashghal’s Local Roads, Drainage and Stormwater Programme ($13.7bn), latest developments and future opportunities in the construction of sewerage and drainage networks to manage the country’s Ground Water, Water Treatment, Waste Water, Foul Sewage and Treated Sewage Effluence (TSE) requirements.

The 4th Annual Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Qatar 2017 will focus on the drainage infrastructure works which are required in the lead up to FIFA 2022, the associated opportunities for developing stormwater and drainage infrastructure networks within Qatar’s industrial cities, townships, hotels, malls and the metro network.

Bringing together the responsible government authorities, engineering and design consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, materials and machinery suppliers, this seminar will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange knowledge and share best practices for designing, constructing, refurbishing, operating and maintaining effective stormwater, sewerage and drainage networks for Qatar.

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.
