Dubai’s premier Skyscrapers Summit announces Schindler as Diamond Sponsor

Smart Skyscrapers Summit takes great pride in announcing Schindler as Diamond Sponsor of the 2015 edition of the event, to be held at Sofitel The Palm Resort and Spa, Dubai, UAE, on May 11-12, 2015.

This association is especially relevant as Schindler’s focus on corporate sustainability as embodied through the three pillars of people, planet and performance, allies perfectly with the summit’s underlying theme of sustainable development.

Produced by global conference organizers, Expotrade, the two-day summit will focus on the challenges in sustainable skyscraper development and the best practices employed, in terms of passenger safety and convenience, robust engineering, energy efficiency and more.

Efficient energy management is one of the core issues faced by enterprises associated with sustainable economic development globally. With more skyscrapers completed globally than ever before in recent times, balancing the twin challenges of spiraling energy consumption rates and passenger safety, with the complexities of building a stable high-rise structure and the immense costs involved, is a topic that brings forth a variety of interesting and innovative solutions. It is these solutions that will be debated and discussed by the best names in the business at the Smart Skyscrapers Summit.

The critical element of transportation and transit management in this scenario is undeniable. Vertical and horizontal transportation that facilitates efficient tall building design and planning, and enhances accessibility and ease of use, is of the essence. Its importance is highlighted by Wassim Aboushaar, Executive Managing Director - Schindler Middle East, who will be speaking at the summit on ‘Intelligent Transit in Modern High Rise Buildings’. He says, “Schindler is deeply committed to the Middle East market for partnering in the success of high rise development by pioneering entities in the field of high rise design & construction.

As the leading global high rise expert, Schindler offers to the customer - a unique combination of: People, Product, Technology & Project Management.

Clearly the next wave of high rise development shall be led by players who not only offer technically compliant solutions, but those that push the envelope in terms of ‘smart’ innovation, intuitive building design & development and radically new ways to execute plans from drawing boards to reality.

Schindler is fully geared up to be a class-leading, innovative urban mobility solutions provider that not only sets new industry benchmarks but also brings tangible value back to all those involved in the decision-making process for tall buildings especially the investor-developer community.”

Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, organizers of the conference, welcomed the partnership, saying, “The Smart Skyscrapers Summit, featuring the world’s most innovative building technologies, designs and solutions, viewed against the backdrop of sustainability, is an ideal platform for Schindler to present their solutions to the audience. We welcome the partnership with Schindler and look forward to a long and meaningful association with them.”
