About Future Police Technology 2016

The UAE Police forces have one of the most challenging and vital roles to play in the country. Security and safety are the most important factors in keeping residents happy which is a key policy that HH Shiekh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is trying to promote.

The police’s role is very diverse and call outs can be due to a desert rescue operation or a murder. Dubai Police alone conducted 26, 237 land rescues and 290 sea rescue missions in 2016 all within 12-minute response times. As the UAE becomes a global tourism hub with people coming in to enjoy the wadis, deserts and beaches these rescue missions are expected to increase especially in Dubai, RAK and Fujairah. UAE police forces have also invested in drone technology amongst a host of other technologies to prepare for crowd control situations in football matches, concerts, marathons and of course the 25million expected visitors for Expo 2020. 

The 2nd Future Police Technology UAE will support delivery of each Emirates ‘A Safe City Project’ and the UAE Vision 2021. This event supports the UAE’s National Agenda aims with the objective of the UAE becoming the happiest place in the world.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
