ABOUT 7TH FUTURE LANDSCAPE AND PLAYSPACES ABU DHABI

The past few years have opened our eyes to the important role nature and natural spaces can have on our wellbeing and mental health. At the same time, there has never been a more important time to discuss the children’s need for interactive and engaging play.

With a large number of new developments, entertainment destinations, cultural sites and public parks coming up in Abu Dhabi in the coming years, this is especially relevant to the Emirate. Meanwhile the UAE’s inspiring environmental goals have put an emphasis on the use of more sustainable plants, materials, and irrigation techniques.

The 7th Edition of the Landscape and Playspaces Abu Dhabi is taking place on 13 - 14  June 2023 in Abu Dhabi to cover these important topics. The conference will provide a unique platform for the top decision-makers from the government, public and private project owners, developers, architects, consultants, contractors, recreation and facilities managers as well as equipment and solution providers to meet, network and help shape the city’s landscape.
