Sign up for the webinar

The UAE construction industry is going through an enormous period of transformation.

Much of this transformation is taking place as a result of short-term market conditions such as the slowdown in the Dubai real estate market or the disruption from the Covid-19 pandemic.

But long-term structural changes such as the growing need to reduce carbon emissions, rapid urbanisation and economic diversification will strongly influence the construction landscape in the years to come.

The drivers of construction in the UAE in the next decade will be substantially different from what came before and UAE construction must adapt to prepare for the new opportunities. It must develop new skills, embrace new technologies, and introduce contractual relationships that encourage healthier, more collaborative and sustainable ways to do business

The 6th webinar in the Mashreq Construction Club Connect Series will examine the trends that will shape the future of the construction industry both in the UAE and across the region.

The live-streamed webinar features a panel of experts who will be able to answer questions on the implications and impact of these trends, and the opportunities that lie ahead for construction players.

Key discussion points:
  • Understanding the most significant trends shaping UAE construction
  • Identifying new opportunities
  • Considering the challenges and risks resulting from these transformations
