UAE: Global Logistics Forum – 7-8 Feb 2011

Theme:
ELogistics Infrastructure and Services in The Middle Eastast

Due to the growing link between global supply chains and prime location, GCC countries are currently experiencing a strong demand for logistics services and infrastructure.

The recent explosion of infrastructure projects requires a proper understanding of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, risks, and success factors from the local and global point of view. This Forum aims to bring local and international policy makers, supply chain managers, and logistics managers together, to understand local needs.

This strong association with local projects, participation of the international academic community, and discussions involving local decision makers will undoubtedly set this conference apart from all others. The forum will address subjects related to Abu Dhabi's Master Plan and Economic Vision 2030, customized local requirements of infrastructure projects, and the development of global logistic services. In order to provide delegates with well rounded information and a hands-on grasp of concepts, The Global Logistics Forum will include three workshops involving various visits to significant infrastructure locations, as well as logistics service providers.

The first Global Logistics Forum is part of long-term strategic partnership between Abu Dhabi University and the TU Berlin Chair of Logistics and represents a first step in developing a long term, high quality programme of courses, events and knowledge transfer in the field of supply chain logistics.
