The World Road Congress (WRC), organised by the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport, the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Infrastructure Development and the World Road Association (PIARC), will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 6th to 10th October 2019. It will bring together participants from all over the world to share their knowledge of and experience in the construction industry.
This year, the Energy & Industry Division in Spain and the Middle East will be presenting the very latest road technologies with both a stand and a presentation in the World Road Congress (WRC). The Applus+ team will comprise Isabel Rodríguez Ramos, Head of the Construction Line in Spain; Luis Alberto Jaén Pérez, Head of Construction Services in the Energy & Industry Division; and Pedro Aliseda Pérez de Madrid, Technical Director for Road Surface Management. They will be supported by members of the Middle East team, including Matt Stead, Head of Business Development for Africa and the Middle East; Abdul Rahman, Head of Business Development for the United Arab Emirates; and Sunil Kumar, Business Development Manager for the United Arab Emirates.
Pedro Aliseda will also present a paper entitled “Towards Digital Roads”, illustrating the company’s 20-year journey developing road-surface auscultation services, which culminates today in its participation in a major international innovation project known as “PAV-DT”, a disruptive technology that enables the real-time, low-cost monitoring of a road’s condition. This project cements the Applus+ Group’s position at the forefront of innovation, as we move inexorably towards digitisation – including in roads.
By taking part in this event, held in one of the most economically influential locations in the world for a wide range of business areas, the company will raise awareness of the customised solutions and cutting-edge projects on which it is currently working. This will enable it to strengthen its market position while seeking new business opportunities to support its continued international expansion.
