About the 7th Edition of the Retrofit Tech MENA Summit and Awards

The Retrofit Tech series of events are the most prominent platform for the key players in the Energy Efficiency, Sustainability and Retrofitting sectors to meet, network, and exchange ideas on achieving the region’s ambitious sustainability goals.
Over the past 7 years, these events have gone from strength to strength, with a significant presence in the UAE and Saudi markets, and a growing presence in Qatar and Egypt. They serve as a platform for the announcement of new government initiatives and visions, upcoming large-scale projects, and the most innovative and cutting-edge technologies the market has to offer.
The regional Retrofit Tech events culminate in the Annual Retrofit Tech MENA Summit and Awards, bringing together the top stakeholders across the UAE, as well as the key stakeholders from across the MENA region, to share ideas, learn from industry best-practices, and see the most innovative technologies in the sector.
Accordingly, the 7th Edition of the Retrofit Tech MENA Summit and Awards is taking place on 21 - 22 February 2022 in Dubai. The Retrofit Tech Awards take place alongside the prestigious summit, to highlight the best projects, initiatives and innovators  the industry has to offer.
