Fleming Gulf, organisers of market-leading conferences across the GCC, has announced that the seventh edition of the Middle East District Cooling Summit (MEDCS) – recognized as the region’s largest gathering of global experts and specialists in district cooling – will be held between 10-11 November 2015 at the luxurious Ritz Carlton Hotel in Doha, Qatar. As the industry’s highly anticipated open dialogue platform for district cooling stakeholders in the region, this year’s presentations, discussions and case studies are expected to focus on technologies, regulations, projects and financing. This will further push district cooling’s importance in the drive towards a sustainable and energy efficient future.

“Over the last six years, the district cooling industry has grown leaps and bounds in terms of its application and integration into new and upcoming infrastructure development projects across the Middle East,” said Jason Mendonca, Production Head Utilities of Fleming Gulf. “Within the same period of time, the Middle East District Cooling Summit has established itself as the most authoritative platform and gathering of industry experts that have also facilitated the industry’s impressive growth.
