About the 9th Annual Congress
This year the EmiratesGBC Congress will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the construction and building sector and reflect on the opportunities that arise in these uncertain times to build a sustainable and resilient future for the UAE through its buildings & cities.
International and regional experts will discuss the role of sustainability in the transition from crisis to recovery and reflect on the trends that will shape the future of urban areas. Through a series of presentations and panel discussions we will explore how commitments to climate action and achieving the SDG’s can support organisations in these uncertain times.
This year’s Congress will be a hybrid online and in-person event providing the opportunity for delegates from across the region to join the conversation.
