About Smart Parking Qatar

The inaugural Smart Parking Qatar 2016 was successfully held at Intercontinental Hotel The City, Doha in April. With the support of the National Traffic Safety Committee, this event gathered more than 130 delegates over the course of two days to discuss how to advance Qatar national strategies and coordinate projects to ensure parking strategy is met.

The conference opened with keynote addresses from Yousef al Emadi, Manager of roads operations & maintenance department in Public Works Authority “Ashghal” and from Dr. Adnan Abu Dayya, Chief Executive Officer in Qatar Mobility Innovations Center.

The private and public sectors got together to discuss the projects in the pipeline and how to utilize new technology and advanced design strategies to develop the car parks and parking facilities in Qatar.

Join us at the 2nd Annual Smart Parking Qatar conference to learn more about the parking master plan issued by the Ministry of Transport & Communication and identify the opportunities available around FIFA World Cup 2022.

Excellent Opportunities for the Smart Parking sector

Did You Know?

  • Research has suggested that while each vehicle in a city needs a minimum of two spaces, to successfully function, city planners should in fact allocate eight spaces per vehicle.
  • It has been estimated that the parking industry across the MENA region is worth between 950 million USD and 30 billion USD.
  • As the population in Qatar continues to grow and the number of large-scale events held in the country also continues to increase, the requirement for adequate car parks and parking facilities is increasing exponentially.

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.
