The 2nd Annual WeatherTech GCC will provide a unique platform in the GCC for specialists to share best practice, evaluate solutions and implement innovations in weather forecasting and climate change to ensure achievement of current and future development objectives. This innovative and specialised event will provide an opportunity for meteorologist, scientists, policy makers and creative thinkers to generate solutions to overcome challenges, develop future strategy and to guide improvement.
This event will build on the success of the 2015 event that brought together 120 attendees from seven nations over two days. The 2nd Annual WeatherTech GCC will facilitate accurate and next-generation weather forecasting and climate-change measurement technologies and services. WeatherTech GCC will support economic development, enable future sustainability and help to mitigate weather risk to industry and individuals.
“The weather and climate conditions have such an impact on people and economic activities here in the Gulf States. Developing a greater understanding of how and why it varies over the short as well as long time spans is essential to ensuring the continued prosperity and advances in the different countries. The WeatherTech conference is an important step in show-casing how new data may be generated to support sound economic and social decision-making.”
Dr. Rachael McDonnell, Head of Climate Change Modeling and Adaptation Section, ICBA, Dubai
“ NCMS is looking forward having the opportunity to lead the way for improvement in cooperation with our GCC colleagues and is delighted to collaborate with WeatherTech GCC to work towards this goal.

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.
