11:20 AM INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION: Islands of entertainment - Creating all inclusive destination islands to attract millions of visitors a year and boost economic revenue

Key question: What are the key considerations in developing a world-class island resort in the Middle East to attract international visitors to the region?

In this session, we will examine:
  • Why hotels partnerships are a key component of the worlds leading island resorts
  • The importance of partnering with airlines, retail outlets, entertainment and restaurants to create an all inclusive experience
  • How to create a single, integrated and unified experience across retail outlets, car parks, dining and attractions to increase ROI and visitor experience of the island
  • How to drive visitor attraction by offering a diverse range of entertainment options that ensures they never want to leave the resort


3:10 PM INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION: Debating the environmental impact of land reclamation – is your island Eco friendly?

We often look to island development and costal projects as a way of making our cities more attractive to tourists and more economically successful – but at what cost?

This exclusive panel debate will discuss the impact of land reclamation on the environment and what key strategies we can put in place to avoid serious damage.

In this session, we will examine:
  • Environmental impact assessment on land reclamation projects – the untold truth
  • Best practices to monitor and assess land reclamation’s impacts on species, habitats and the marine ecosystems
  • Hydrodynamic modelling techniques to ensure water quality and plume dispersion in land reclamation projects
