The 3rd Annual Marine Data Infrastructure GCC 2018 event will focus on the GCC governments, public and private sector companies that are investing significantly in advanced and highly sophisticated technology and innovation for data acquisition, integration and management to maximise access to marine data through regional cooperation. Marine data gains more and more importance in ports and waterfront projects as well as in offshore activities (oil and gas exploitations) and in ocean protection initiatives. Therefore, the GCC needs to share data and exchanges best practices to secure navigation and safety in the region.
Thanks to the impact from World Expo 2020, substantial investments have been made to increase the Emirate’s coastline. With other multiple marine projects announced in Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the GCC region is showing a strong and continuous development. This expansion highlights the importance of integrating existing technical capabilities and information into a framework for GCC marine data infrastructure that have been already raised by stakeholders acting in ports, oil and gas projects, building projects, environment protection.
For the third edition, the Annual Marine Data Infrastructure GCC 2018 conference will bring together marine data management experts, regulators, maritime sector stakeholders and technology providers to discuss ocean monitoring, data collection techniques and sharing, best practices and case studies, the latest technological advancements in terms of marine data infrastructure.
Call us today on +971 4 361 4001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Now is the moment for the GCC to evolve into a leader in marine data infrastructure:

• Interact with government policy makers and marine industry experts to discuss, evaluate and support the new projects to be done by 2020 and the exchanges of data.
• Gain insight into the upcoming the new projects in progress and to be launched, the GCC regulations, specifications and standards to be applied
• Achieve your current and future development objectives and strategies by identifying new technology innovation, optimizing existing hardware and software configurations, integrating new devices into existing infrastructures
• Develop your network of peers, decision makers and solution providers to increase your knowledge base and expertise resources in Dubai
• Share national and international best practices and successful stories on technology used to bring efficient solutions that may applied to improve local marine data collection
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.
