Developing the Arabian coastline through sustainable and innovative design and engineering
The GCC has seen extraordinary marine development with some of the world’s most famous waterfront projects and artificial islands popping up around the region faster than anywhere else in the world. It is an exciting and dynamic industry and therefore, it is vital to stay ahead through continuous improvement and learning with every new project.
2017 will be no exception and will see the design and development of ambitious projects in the region providing an opportunity to explore proven achievements and new innovations and technologies for coastal management and engineering.
To discuss this and more don’t miss the Marine & Coastal Design and Engineering Forum, taking place from 25-26 April 2017 in Bahrain. Join marine and coastal experts from consultants, contractors, private developers, government representatives and solution providers to share experiences and discuss project challenges and requirements in order to determine best practice in marine engineering, coastal design and project delivery.
