Allegion joins Smart Skyscrapers Summit as a Gold Sponsor

Smart Skyscrapers Summit is happy to announce Allegion as a Gold Sponsor for the upcoming edition of the summit that will be held on 16-17 May at Sofitel Dubai the Palm Resort & Spa. The 3rd Annual Smart Skyscrapers Summit is held under the patronage of Dubai Municipality and is supported by Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.

The first day of the summit will see Allegion, a leader in security products and solutions for homes and businesses, emphasize safety in a presentation titled ‘Fire, Life Safety & Accessibility Codes with a special focus on the International Building Codes’. This topic is especially relevant given the recent cases of fires in high-rise buildings in Dubai, and will be delivered by Eng. Arun C. Prabhu, Allegion Architectural Consultant, outlining the importance of building and life safety codes that safeguard the welfare of building occupants.

Commenting on the importance of participating at the Smart Skyscrapers Summit, Jeff Bennett, Allegion Commercial Leader of the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, said “The Smart Skyscrapers Summit will give Allegion a great opportunity to learn more about new technologies, products and services in the construction industry. At the same time, our team of experts will meet, network and share their experiences with leaders across this important market. With our own innovative solutions, we are working to make UAE and the MEA region more safe and secure.”

Allegion’s sponsorship shows the company aligns with the summit’s overarching theme to focus on the future potential, design, safety standards and structural innovations of skyscrapers in the region, with references to real-world examples from across the globe.

Over two days, the summit will feature a number of knowledge-sharing sessions and networking opportunities for over 400 senior delegates representing designers, engineers, urban planners and sustainability consultants based across the GCC region.

Announcing the partnership, Mr. Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Allegion as our newest Gold Sponsor this year. Incorporating fire safety best-practices with skyscraper design is one of the key topics in this year’s summit agenda and is aligned with Allegion’s commitment as a leader in providing security products and solutions. We look forward to a long term and fruitful engagement with them.”
