The response from the Milestone community has been overwhelming. Said Kiwan, Director, MVP Tech says: “We are excited and honored to have received the 'Project of the Year, 2017' award at the recent MPOP event, by Milestone Systems, that took place at the Ritz Carlton DIFC between 9 and 10, May 2018. The award recognized and rewarded our team efforts and dedication towards completion of the 'Zayed Sports City Stadium' project, one of the largest stadiums in the UAE with more than 43,000 seating capacity.  Our design and implementation were tailored around the concepts of real-time information to better ensure the safety and security of the tenants, visitors, and players, limit access to restricted areas, identify internal and external threats, and ensure no disruption in daily operations. Our main challenge for this project was delivering it in a very tight timeline period, without compromising on quality, and to be ready to serve the FIFA Club World Cup."
Christian Ringler, Director Middle East, Africa and DACH summarized: “We wish to thank everyone who supported our Milestone Community Days. It was truly a demonstration of the power of community! The entire Middle East Team is very proud to have hosted the event and special thanks go to all of the Milestone Technology & Solution Partners who helped us make this possible.”
