Dubai’s population grew 5% in 2016 according to the Dubai Statistics Centre, the urban population will be more than 2.4 million residents in 2017. Due to growth in population there is a need to construct more mosques in line with population distribution and density. Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) have dedicated in excess of Dhs 440 million for 2017 investment in new mosque construction. The UAE government subsidizes almost 95% of Dubai’s mosques, with around 5% of them being entirely private. The 2nd Annual Mosque Design & Development Summit will support mosque design, best practice and construction.
The IACAD have announced a total of 68 new mosques projects that are currently under construction 32 are located in Bur Dubai and 31 in Deira. In addition to new build projects 5 existing mosques will be re-built and renovated. The style of the new mosques, will be built in the local style and Fatimi style, while others will follow the Ottoman style, or a modern style. Once the mosques will be completed, will accommodate around 52,600 people. This event will be presented under the patronage of IACAD and will feature speakers from the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, Etihad ESCO, Wanders Werner Falasi and many others.
Mosque Design & Development Summit will bring industry experts from the region and across the globe to discuss the future of mosque architecture and state-of-the-art technology required to meet aesthetic and energy efficiency goals. The summit will also serve as a platform to discuss updates on the challenges and strategies for designing, constructing, operating and maintaining mosques and present a wide range of insight through case studies, interactive panel discussions and a quick-fire solution and technology showcase.

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.
