The Middle East Rail 2016 on 8th-9th March will welcome over 9,000 attendees from all over the world at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre. The 10th annual event is seen as a leading forum for industry practitioners to come and learn how to develop smart and world class transportation projects throughout the Arab world.
With $300bn worth of rail projects in the pipeline, the opportunity is significant but the complexity can’t be underestimated. Having been involved in delivering some of the most complex projects globally, 8over8 recognises this challenge and will be at hand to discuss and showcase its robust contract risk management platform tailored to the needs of large, capex transportation initiatives.
The 8over8’s presentation ‘Total contract control for rail projects’ delivered by Mounir Boemond, Regional Manager will focus on:
Demonstrating that on large infrastructure projects, hundreds of millions of dollars can be saved if a project adopts complete contract control best practices to manage all communications where important contractual matters are thoroughly discussed and agreed.
Mounir will also outline that the adoption enables successful contract change management, improved contractual obligation compliance and enhances the ability to successfully defend you business against future claims while complying with industry standards such as FIDIC & NEC3.
The attendees will also be able to see ProCon, the 8over8’s contract management software in action and learn how the solution can help minimize risk and manage claims in complex transport projects, ensuring that such projects are completed on time and on budget.
