Road to Abu Dhabi
03 November 2014
The World Road Association's (PIARC) XXVIth World Road Congress will take place in Abu Dhabi in October 2019.
The PIARC Council voted in favour of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) location at its meeting held in Santiago de Chile on 29 and 30 October 2014.
Established in 1909, the World Road Association (PIARC) brings together the road administrations of 120 governments along with its members in over 140 countries. Winning the honour to host the Congress is quite a coup for the UAE, which was accepted as the latest member on 29 October.
The event is expected to attract between 5,000 and 7,000 delegates. The Congress takes place every four years. The most recent event was held in Mexico in 2011, and the upcoming gathering will be in the South Korean capital Seoul.
The aim of the Congress is to "share techniques and experiences worldwide in the field of road infrastructures and road transport".
