The skyline of major cities have transformed in the past decade, shedding light on the importance of mega-structures in boosting a city’s profile. Vertical cities have led to urban agglomeration and boosted the urban economy. With Dubai ranked as the second most-prolific city for having completed the most skyscrapers in 2019, the 6th Annual Smart Skyscrapers & Intelligent Retrofit Summit, taking place on 19th and 20th October 2021 at Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa will lay focus on the architectural & economic elements along with sustainable retrofit designs to ensure seamless operations of mega-infrastructures.
In line with UAE’s energy efficient strategy and sustainable development goals, the event will highlight intelligent retrofits for existing high-rises to enable optimal usage of energy and reducing carbon emissions. Attracting over 400 delegates, this event will be this region’s largest supertall infrastructure conference which will witness leading architects and sustainability experts participate to engage and discuss the strategies and challenges to counter in creating livable urban communities.
Across two days, the conference will host over 40 international and regional experts from government organizations and private sectors to explore the planning, maintenance and impact of high-rises in the region.
Another well attended summit with a good mix of relevant delegates that Coopers Fire want to engage with. There was a greater number of exhibitors involved in the fire industry which was encouraging to see and I believe through discussions with delegates they too have an interest in fire safety in tall buildings. It was great to have returned again for a second year to the summit. The organization...
We would like to say the event had a great location and fantastic organization. It was a very interesting event with good partners and interesting topics. The pool of delegates we met have been in accordance with our expectations. The relevant number of decision makers gave us the opportunity for a consistent follow-up for future activities. There was very positive feedback from our side.

A very well-managed event. The quality of speakers encompassing various disciplines/aspects which plays major role in a skyscraper was quite amazing. Being a structural engineer, I was able to understand various other disciplines’ importance in building of a skyscraper. Thanks.

The event was excellent for us; lots of good visitors also matched our target audience. The stamp idea was excellent. It made everyone visit every stand and I am sure we met potential clients through this. All in all, we feel it has been a good and worthwhile event for Kansai Paint.
Smart Skyscraper Summit was a well-organized event and the first attended by VP, as a sponsor, in this region. The conference exposed our products and services to some very good delegates who we hope will become customers. Support prior to the event and during the conference was excellent.
