WUF10 - Tenth Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF10) 

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 8 - 13 February 2020.

FIDIC is co-organising WUF10 events.

Draft programmes are available for all selected Networking and Side events, reflecting new event numbers, the event registration code, title and organization(s) hosting the event, allocated date, time, location (Hall 2 or Hall 3) and room number.

Event information

The profile of the identified focal point for events which are co-hosted, has been re-opened for event organisers to be able to make any needed online edits regarding the title, event summary, list of organisations or speakers directly into the event details if need be.

The final deadline for editing is the 15 January 2020.

Each event organiser must make a short notification to UN-Habitat once an organiser has completed the editing, stating the registration code and new event number. Also, the organiser must provide text in English for publication in the WUF10 programme and on the WUF10 website https://wuf.unhabitat.org/.  

Event organisers can provide UN-Habitat with additional publication material (in pdf) for posting on the Forum website. UN-Habitat also looks forward to being informed in case that an event organiser is using for further outreach its own website, so that UN-Habitat can link the website from the WUF10 website as well.


All meeting rooms are equipped in theater style with: 1 podium for 6 people with 3 tables (inclusive microphones), 100 chairs for the audience (roving microphones for the audience), flip chart, standard technical equipment (laptop, projector, projections screen, clicker) for power-point (16:9 ratio) and video presentation.

There will be one extra table for publications, and one table for report writers.

The interpretation services can be hired directly through ADNEC. Please obtain the interpretation order form, reflecting cost and contact details (technical equipment and interpretation booth is free of charge).  Please be reminded that interpretation services are at a cost of the Organizer carrying out the event.

Interpretation requests must be received by 10 January 2020.

Attached please find the “Side Bookings Menu Pack” to order catering.
