Introduction

In 2016, during the 4th edition of the World IEQ Forum, in Dubai, delegates saw an interesting debate unfold on whether the pursuit of greater energy efficiency was at the cost of indoor air quality. Tighter insulation profiles and fewer fresh air changes, the IAQ camp argued, were putting paid to efforts to ensure healthier buildings. They called for many more fresh air changes than the number prescribed by ASHRAE, say. The counter-argument rode on the premise that fresh air changes would mean more energy usage, which would increase indirect emissions.

Testimonials

 

The World IEQ forum 2018 is an excellent setup which provides a platform for discussing challenges, exchanging knowledge, and presenting innovations relevant to the IEQ. The IEQ is a multi-discipline subject where engineers, scientists, physicians as well as regulators play important roles and contribute to shape the development of this issue. The IEQ forum is the right answer for the fast evolvement and continued development of the technical areas within the IEQ which require such platforms.

- Redha H. Salman, Director, Health & Safety Department, Dubai Municipality

The IEQ forum brought a unique perspective and discussed the necessity for the quality of the indoor environment, which is significant to increase the breadth and depth of our understanding, also essential to bring a dynamic and interactive feel for Sustainable Development in the region.

- Farid Ashraf, Marketing Head |MEP & Solar Water Heating Division, Emitech Technical Services/p>

It was a pleasure to participate in the World IEQ Forum in Dubai. The whole event was a great opportunity to engage with leaders and experts in the field and to learn from countries across regions the strategic ways they use to enhance the lives of their people by driving greater penetration of energy-efficient solutions. My congratulations to the organizers for successfully convening participants from across the sectors to focus on common goals. I think the organizers did a great job in selecting speakers and the speakers themselves did a great job in sharing what they do. It’s a good place to initiate collaboration and try to brainstorm ideas for new concepts.

- Raj Achan, Regional Director - Middle East and India, Goettsch Partners

World IEQ forum is a good platform brining in Indoor Air Quality Specialists, Consultants, contractors and Clients to discuss and understand the importance of indoor air quality and its role in human well-being. It’s important to find out what is optimum without losing energy efficiency and to provide a comfortable living for its occupants.

- Liju Thomas Eapen, Managing Director, Al Arif Décor & Al Arif A/C

The forum brought together authorities, consultants, contractors , suppliers and the rest of the professional fraternity to discuss several vital topics including all of but not limited to regulations, policies and technologies . This diverse representation and the thoughtfully aligned theme served as enablers for meaningful discussions and exchange of experiences and expertise.

- Paravasthu Jagannathan, Sustainability Manager, Trakhees

It was a highly successful forum, this topic is very important for everyone related to the industry. I would like to thank the organizers for putting together this great event.

- Yasser Omar Rajab Kayed, Government of Ajman | Municipality and Planning Department

A much needed unique event for the region considering the fact that we spend 95% of our time indoors .The QUALITY of air we breathe is much debated and this event addresses this core requirement well by bringing regulatory authorities, consultants, contractors and HSE specialists onto a single “ actionable” platform

- Christopher Rajamani, Deputy General Manager (UAE), Al Hoty-Stanger Laboratories

As UAE strives to promote Happiness and Sustainability, IEQ is often a forgotten and unseen component that contributes to the sustainability, health and well-being of communities. This conference is essential for any professionals responsible for living or working conditions in buildings. In the UAE we spend far more time inside particularly in the summer and therefore have higher exposure to impact of IEQ. This forum enables a sharing of latest developments to help mitigate risks of users of internal spaces and boost the productivity of employees or the wellness of residential communities.
