If there is one international event you need to attend in 2019, it ought to be the Abu Dhabi WRC (coming 6 – 10 OCTOBER, 2019) — it is one of the most prestigious transport events where attendees have a unique opportunity to discuss issues relevant to the challenges facing roads and disseminating updated knowledge about them.
Since 1908, the World Road Congress (WRC) has been a deﬁning voice for the road infrastructure and transport industry.
The 26th World Road Congress provides a unique opportunity for road and transportation professionals to share and seek knowledge, ideas and innovations, as well as trends and developments, best practices and experiences in the fields of road, infrastructures and transport in order that all participants go back home with new knowledge able to be implemented at the local and national levels, tells His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
The Abu Dhabi Department of Transport (DoT) won the bid to host the 2019 World Roads Congress; a five-day event that will enable participants to share and discuss national policy practices and experiences under the theme of ‘Connecting Cultures, Enabling Economies’ that will demonstrate the commitment of the UAE to promote and foster innovation in the surface transport, tunnels, bridges and infrastructure space.
Partakers will look forward to discussing developments in road transport services for the future to pursue important topics (namely Future Transport Network, Artificial Intelligence, Land Use Planning) in line with the World Road Association (PIARC).
“The Congress programme features the presentation of the results of the work undertaken by PIARC’s 22 Committees and Task Forces, as well as a number of specialized sessions and workshops dealing with topics of current and future interest and a large exhibition in which road administrations, equipment and service providers, consultants and road-related organizations will be present,” as told Claude Van Rooten, President of the World Road Association (PIARC).
