About the 6th Edition of the Retrofit Tech MENA Summit

The recent pandemic has had a significant impact on almost all global industries, which has in turn made it necessary for many business priorities across various industries to be re-imagined with some key factors in mind:
  • Reduced budgets and downtime have made the need for cost-savings a priority for many businesses
  • Indoor Air Quality has jumped to the fore as a key factor for public and large-scale buildings
  • Lower productivity and downtime in many key industries has meant that many medium-long term strategies need to be re-evaluated and re-calibrated 
  • Lower oil prices have slowed down the demand for solar and renewable integration
  • Diminished capacity and foot traffic have meant most M&V plans would need to be re-assessed
To address all of the important topics above and provide an opportunity for the key players in the Energy Efficiency, Sustainability and Retrofitting sectors to meet, network, and exchange ideas on achieving their new priorities, the 6th Annual Retrofit Tech MENA is taking place on 23-24 March 2021 at the Mövenpick Grand Al Bustan Dubai, UAE.
The most prominent platform for the industry is hosted and strategically endorsed by Etihad Energy Services and Dubai Carbon, with this prestigious annual gathering of high-level decision makers and industry trail-blazers presenting an ideal platform for ESCOs and technology providers to showcase their innovative technologies and solutions, and learn more about the exciting upcoming projects in the UAE and the MENA region as a whole.
