The Middle East Smart Landscape Summit proudly announces Zeoplant’s participation as Silver Sponsor at the 2015 edition of the event, to be held on April 28-29, 2015, at Sofitel The Palm Resort and Spa, Dubai, UAE.
Held under the patronage of the Dubai Municipality and produced by global conference organizers Expotrade, the two-day summit will focus on the major initiatives undertaken towards urban landscape development, viewed against the context of the Dubai Municipality’s aim of converting Dubai into a green paradise in time for the World Expo 2020.
Zeoplant’s position as the world’s leading natural moisture retaining soil additive makes it ideally suited to be associated with the event, with its focus on sustainable landscaping including innovative irrigation techniques.
The Dubai Municipality’s ‘Dubai 2020’ vision that projects a total of 12,200 hectares of green space through landscaping and horticulture projects has spawned a number of major greening initiatives, leading to significant growth opportunities for the landscape sector in the Middle East.
A robust irrigation network will form the bedrock on which the success of such initiatives rest. Evidence of this abounds across the UAE, with the surge in building of new parks and landscaped zones. Urban green spaces are well and truly on the rise in Dubai. And what is important is that all of it is sustainable. Sustainability, in terms of landscape architecture and environmental design are some of the core issues to be discussed at the Smart Landscape Summit, later this year.
Existing public areas can often face critical irrigation water shortages during the peak summer months, while newer developments can experience difficulties getting connected to the TSE or potable water network. Reducing irrigation water requirements by half using a proven and reliable additive can save not just on infrastructure investment, but also reduce operational and maintenance cost.
The importance of such a solution is stressed on by Ralf Stahl, Managing Partner, Zeoplant LLC, who will be speaking at the event on ‘Sustainable solution for the increased irrigation water shortage in our booming environment’. He feels the summit is ideal, saying, “Zeoplant once again partnered with Smart Landscape Summit because we see the event as the outstanding platform for the landscaping industry in the region to address and meet the experts and decision makers from the public and private sector.”
Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, organizers of the conference, welcomed the partnership, saying “The Middle East Smart Landscape Summit, with its theme of sustainable urban landscape development in general and topics revolving round innovative irrigation in particular, is the perfect platform for Zeoplant to showcase their offerings to the right audience. Zeoplant’s return as Silver Sponsor is indicative of the confidence and trust they have reposed in us. I look forward to an even more meaningful association with Zeoplant.”
