Developments in Qatar, such as Lusail City, Education City, Msheirib Downtown and Pearl-Qatar are being established with foundations for intelligent infrastructure to ensure they meet the country’s plans to have Smart Cities.
With congestion and parking being a major challenge, a conference dedicated to the design, development and management of Qatar’s parking facilities is coming into focus. The conference, being organised by Advanced Conferences & Meetings during 18-19 April 2016, is expected to present opportunities for the parking industry to provide solutions for existing infrastructure and for future developments.
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.
This demand for increased parking facilities requires careful urban master-planning and design, but new technologies also offer opportunities for better management, optimization and revenue generation for building owners, community managers, local governments and other car park operators.
According to a press release by the event organizers, Smart Parking Qatar 2016 Conference will incorporate case studies and quality speakers from the relevant government agencies and other stakeholders from Qatar as well as from across the region and abroad to discuss the wide variety of ongoing and upcoming projects in Qatar to further develop the country’s parking facilities.
The conference will bring together the designers, contractors, technology providers, building and community owners, event organizers and other car park and parking facility operators to explore the design and construction considerations of car parks and parking facilities, as well as the new smart technologies in this sector.
