The AD Ports Group is pushing forward its Industrial Revolution 4.0 vision in line with the ‘UAE Innovates 2022’ event.
The festival showcases innovative projects and experiences that will contribute to the UAE over the next 50 years.
As part of the month-long affair, the group is hosting a wide range of events on emerging technologies that could potentially benefit the ports and terminals sector in the not too distant future. These include artificial intelligence, IoT, and big data.
The AD Ports innovation team is holding workshops, seminars, professional development programmes, and speaker sessions surrounding these topics.
Furthermore, the group has also announced it will be hosting a range of activities that centre around the Metaverse, an online immersive and custom-designed 3D world that blends elements of business network, gamification in E-learning, and social activities.
“AD Ports Group is pleased to announce the commencement of activities that will not only celebrate the ongoing ‘UAE Innovates 2022’ event but which will also highlight the recent achievements of our proud nation in driving innovation across the globe,” said Eiman Al Khalaqi, Vice President of Innovation for the AD Ports Group.
“During this year’s celebration of innovation, we will showcase our latest endeavours to implement advanced innovative solutions across the groups’ clusters.”
One of the main topics of discussion at this year’s event will revolve around key sustainable sources of energy for the future.
Earlier this month, the AD Ports Group published its preliminary 2021 financial results, reporting revenues of AED 3.9 billion ($1.1 billion).
This shows a 14 per cent year-on-year revenue growth when compared with 2020’s financial figures which saw revenue reaching AED 3.4 billion ($933 million). According to the group, this success was driven by volume growth, business diversification and new partnerships.
