Format

The conference will follow the traditional approach of special addresses, presentations and panel discussions, interspersed with audience interactions, plus structured networking sessions in the exhibition area. Day 1 of the conference will focus on consultancy-related issues, while Day 2 will focus on contracting-related issues.

Key highlights

  • The largest ever gathering of general consultants, general contractors, MEP consultants and MEP contractors in the GCC region
  • Discussions on issues of compelling significance, including drafting of contracts, payment delays, disputes and resolutions, HR-related challenges and regulation and enforcement… with a view to identifying optimal solutions
  • Discussions against a mosaic backdrop of oil prices stabilising, the World EXPO 2020 in Dubai, the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, and broad-based regional socioeconomic and sustainable development goals … which point to a need for urgency in resolving long-standing issues, and in identifying solutions to create an enabling business environment for consultants and contractors in the region
  • Networking with developers and manufacturers, and broadening the scope for delivering optimal solutions related to energy efficiency, reliability and IEQ-related goals

Cash flow is the lifeblood of our industry and also our greatest challenge in today’s market. What can we do to protect our businesses and our industry? Hoping The Consultant Contractor Conference can throw up some answers.

 The Contractor Consultant Conference will focus on building healthy relationships so that everybody benefits and projects get delivered on time, and coordination problems are avoided. 

- Sameer Daoud, Chief Development Officer and Managing Director (KSA), Drake & Scull

 I believe that real estate and project owners need to understand the burden contractors are bearing as a result of the action and approach taken by the owners. The situation is leading to a slow death of reputable MEP players. Owners should consider employing capable designers and consultants and also spending sufficient time in issuing complete compliant – with statuary – designs prior to the release of tender documents to contractors to avoid future additional costs and delays.

 My expectation out of the conference is that it will help us identify a better, cohesive and coordinated approach to make all stakeholders for MEP services of the project responsible and accountable.

 The Consultant Contractor Conference will be the ideal platform to bridge the gap between what a developer envisions in their project completion specs and what a contractor endeavours to deliver. Payment delay issues can also be addressed in parallel.

 The conference should undertake a threadbare analysis of the clear roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of the stakeholders, which I believe would enhance the image of the industry and steer it towards professional growth.
