“WETEX and DSS, the largest exhibition in the region in the energy, water, green development, sustainability, and related sectors and one of the largest specialised exhibitions worldwide, supports green and renewable technologies, initiatives, and projects. This contributes to achieving the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, which maps out a comprehensive future map for sustainable urban development in the city,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, Founder and Chairman of WETEX and DSS.
The people-centric Plan is focused on enhancing people’s happiness and quality of life and reinforcing Dubai’s competitiveness. We are pleased to have local and international real estate developers choose WETEX and DSS as ideal platforms to support the prosperity of their businesses. The exhibition provides them with a significant opportunity to reach thousands of companies, exhibitors, participants, officials, and decision-makers from around the world to make deals and build partnerships, as well as identify market needs. This paves the way for more sustainable cities and residential communities in the region and the world. This year’s edition of WETEX and DSS holds special significance as it is being held a few days before the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 28), to be hosted by the UAE at Expo City Dubai. During this time, the UAE will be at the centre of the world’s attention, aiming to achieve great strides towards a brighter and more sustainable future for humanity,” said Saeed Al Taye added.
“This year marks a significant milestone in WETEX’s journey in driving the UAE’s sustainability goals and supporting the future vision of the UAE’s leadership. Over time, the exhibition has developed into a platform that gathers decision-makers in advocating environmentally adaptive practices to position Dubai and the UAE as a global hub for a green economy.
At DAMAC Properties, we understand corporate governance responsibility and the need to adopt sustainability and sustainable building practices in our core business. Our participation at WETEX will showcase our energy-efficient practices and integrated sustainable designs and principles in our building and construction ecosystem, which will reflect our commitment to sustainability and to a greener, more resilient future,” said Hussain Sajwani, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of DAMAC Properties, on their company’s first participation in WETEX and Dubai Solar Show.
