In its fourth edition, the International Contracting Conference (ICC) brings together leading contractors and foreign experts in contracting within the Kingdom. Over the course of two days, the event fosters insightful conversations and debates centering on urban construction, smart cities, sustainability, and cutting-edge building methods. With more than 25 speakers across 12 informative sessions, the conference offers a comprehensive platform for knowledge exchange and exploration.

The conference invites a speaker panel, which includes Guilherme Jacobucci, Executive Director of WSP, for two days of in-depth discussions. The objective of his address is to provide a comprehensive analysis and understanding of the current situation within the construction sector. Jacobucci hopes to offer insightful information about the challenges, opportunities, and essential factors influencing the contracting landscape in the Kingdom.

Jad Ibrahim, Vice President of Support Services at Shade Corporation, emphasizes how workforce management in the contracting industry is evolving. According to RICS’s Global Construction Monitor, Saudi Arabia continues to exhibit the strongest Construction Activity Index in the world, both regionally and globally, throughout this period. For large-scale construction projects to run smoothly, it becomes essential to actively support the hiring, development, and retention of a trained labour force.

Alfonso Senatore, who serves as the Senior Vice President and Head of Sustainability at the Sports Boulevard Foundation, is included among the roster of speakers. He will illuminate the role of contractors in realizing Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 for sustainability.
