The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s national Vision 2030 provides a plan for creating a successful global model of excellence and seeks to re-affirm their position as a hub connecting three continents. Despite the fall in oil prices Saudi Arabia’s government is pushing ahead with its ambitious development agenda and plans to diversify the economy. The National Transformation Program (NTP) and Vision 2030 have been met with overwhelming support as the government begins to develop industries like real estate and tourism in partnership with the private sector.
When comparing Saudi Arabia’s cities to other international hubs investors place value on the landscape and public realm design to increase the project prestige and commerciality. Developers from both the private and public sector seek to design public spaces that combine artistic creativity and blend technical demands with location needs and constraints.
Landscape investment is being made in shopping malls, mixed use developments, public spaces and parks, transportation and infrastructure spaces. The Future Landscape and Public Realm KSA Conference will provide an opportunity to discuss the new innovation and technologies, key challenges, projects and opportunities as well as ways to enhance public realm, eco-tourism in Riyadh and topics to be discussed including streetscaping, hardscaping, softscaping, landscaping and other design innovations to develop Saudi Arabia into the preferred regional hub for investment and commerce.
The Future Landscape and Public Realm KSA 2017 Conference will bring together government representatives, landscape architects, urban designers, contractors and service/solution providers to discuss upcoming projects, innovations, technologies and best practices. This industry-leading event will support Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and the roadmap that has been outlined for the kingdoms development and economic objectives for the next 15 years.
The inaugural Future Landscape and Public Realm KSA conference will focus on developing sustainable design for a liveable, attractive landscape and public realm in KSA. The event will feature case studies of current and upcoming local projects from across KSA and provide a platform to showcase international experiences. Interactive discussions sessions will highlight how challenges and opportunities may be addressed in order to support development of KSA’s public.
