Cityscape Global opens its doors to real estate market
Cityscape Global 2011, the leading premier event for the real estate industry, will open its doors tomorrow, celebrating its tenth year in Dubai.
150 exhibitors from over 28 participating countries, including the UK, USA, Malaysia, Turkey, Brazil, Russia and Greece will be taking part as well as regional real estate companies and Dubai’s Emaar, Nakheel, Dubai Properties, DAMAC Properties and many more.
Chris Speller, group director for Cityscape, commented on the event’s success in the region over the past decade. He said,“Cityscape has developed significantly over the past 10 years, becoming a ‘household name’ within the real estate industry. This year we anticipate there will be a strong focus on end user and an increase in the presence of long-term investors.
“This year’s event will see international companies representing more than 50 per cent of the total exhibitors, an increase on 2010’s event, and Dubai’s position as an ideal bridge between Europe, Asia and Africa has secured its standing within the international business community.”
In addition to Cityscape Global, organiser Informa has launched the Future Cities Conference and exhibition, jointly organised with the Dubai Municipality, the Environmental Center for Arab Towns and the Arab Towns Organization. The event will focus on sustainability and stability of the urban environment. Dubai Municipality will also be presenting its vision for the emirate over the next 30 years at the opening session of the conference.
There will also be a number of networking events scheduled during the three days, with both retail and architecture taking the spotlight at the Retail City Awards and the Cityscape Awards for Architecture in Emerging Markets.
Speller concluded, “The market outlook is much more positive now and we believe that this event will provide an excellent platform for investors, developers, regulators and service companies to come together, network and gain a greater perspective of the opportunity and focus for the real estate industry over the upcoming years.”
