About the Summit

The 3rd Annual Arab Future Cities Summit 2016 will be held on 8th and 9th November at the iconic Palazzo Versace, Dubai. Ranked as one of the most innovative cities in the world and set to become the ‘smartest’ city, the Dubai Government has identified six key components - transport, communications, infrastructure, electricity, economic services and urban planning that are integral to smart city development.

Against this backdrop, the two day summit will lay emphasis on all the developments, plans and strategies that support Dubai’s smart city vision. The 2015 edition of the summit was held under the patronage of Dubai Municipality.
