6th Annual Vertical Cities

6 March 2017 - 8 March 2017

$48 – $2495

Marcus Evans takes great pride in organising one of our flagship events, the 6th Annual Vertical Cities large scale event from 6th – 8th March 2017. This conference a must-attend gathering that provides a perfect platform for those involved in designing, planning and developing vertical cities.

Land is becoming scarce as the world’s population grows and environmental changes shrink the amount of liveable space on Earth. According to the UN, over half the world’s population lives in urban areas today and that figure is expected to rise to 66% by 2050. High-rise buildings are crucial to helping cities increase density with mixed-use functions. Innovative strategies can create highly efficient structures that conserve natural resources. The future of large cities and the resurgence in the importance of skyscrapers are on the agenda for many developers and countries alike.  

Attend this event to leverage on Vertical Cities to resolve rapid urbanisation in highly density cities as a solution to sustainable living. Unlock the commercial potential of your tall buildings using futuristic layouts, modern designs, alternative typologies and place-making strategies to maximise space, achieve density and improve liveability. Focus on addressing the structural and engineering challenges in constructing these skyscrapers with smart building technologies and materials.

Design an efficient vertical mobility with latest transportation systems for enhanced accessibility for a more seamless integration. Learn to establish your skyscraper as a destination of choice with contemporary designs, unique commercial elements and entertainment features to incite repeated visitations and enhance customer engagement. Explore new avenues of integrating your vertical cities within the existing development through mixing the right elements, enhancing the retail component for higher and continuous ROI in the long term. Gain insights to create the city of the future with new innovations and vertical urbanism to meet the needs of the new generation of skyscrapers!
