With more than 200 new mosques currently under construction and the request for more mosques to cater to Muslim expatriates under study, the number of mosques in the UAE was estimated to reach 5,251 by 2015.
Currently, Al Ain has the highest number of mosques at 1,069, followed by 935 mosques located in the Eastern Region, and 903 in Ras Al Khaimah. The UAE also has the fourth largest mosque in the world — the Grand Zayed Mosque located in Abu Dhabi.
Mosque Design and Development UAE will gather the public and private sector to discuss the latest innovations and best practices for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of mosques to meet the required standards across the Emirates while achieving aesthetic and eco-friendly goals.
In Dubai, there are 77 mosques under construction and 45 mosques under study. In 2015, it was announced that Dar Al Ber will be building 30 mosques across the UAE, with an estimated value of US $10.2 million. Across the UAE, there is the opportunity to retrofit up to 5000 mosques.

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.
