ABOUT 8TH FUTURE LANDSCAPE AND PLAYSPACES ABU DHABI

Abu Dhabi has been on a transformation journey while continuously fostering community engagement, and well-being, and creating vibrant spaces that cater to the diverse needs of residents.

To boost development across various sectors, the government announced the AED66bn Development Drive in 2024. Moreover, AED59bn is allocated to develop housing and public facilities. The Abu Dhabi Executive Council has given the green light to 144 projects, as announced by the Abu Dhabi Projects and Infrastructure Centre (ADPIC).

The 8th edition of the Future Landscape and Playspaces Abu Dhabi Summit is set to unfold on 4 - 5 June 2024 at Dusit Thani, Abu Dhabi, UAE and will serve as a catalyst for driving positive change inline with the Emirate’s ambitious visions for a greener, and more liveable city.

This Summit sets the stage to inspire, collaborate and discuss the latest projects, trends, and challenges which will be addressed by experts from government and private entities, thought leaders, innovators, consultants, developers, contractors, architects, and stakeholders shaping the future of sustainable and green spaces, play areas, and overall landscape in Abu Dhabi.
