DUBAI, September 11, 2017

The 16th edition of Cityscape Global, the Middle East’s largest real estate event, officially opened its doors today (September 11) in Dubai offering diverse portfolio of projects, on-site sales for UAE projects and hundreds of global developments on show.

Recognised as the barometer for the regional real estate industry, Cityscape Global runs until Wednesday (September 13) and will host to almost 300 exhibitors including the UAE’s major real estate developers Dubai Holding, Nakheel, Meydan, Meraas, Dubai South, Damac, Aldar Properties, as well as other local and international exhibitors from 30 countries.

Marking a milestone for Cityscape Global’s continued co-operation with the Dubai Land Department and its Real Estate Regulatory Authority, UAE-based projects are available for sale directly from exhibition stands, and a number of developers are offering special promotions and offers to visitors, said the organisers.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, inaugurated the three-day expo.

Later he toured the exhibition halls and learnt about the most important real estate, tourism and entertainment projects being executed by national and international companies.

Sheikh Hamdan stopped at a number of pavilions of companies exhibiting their current and future projects and heard their plans to contribute to developing this vital sector, which forms the main axis in achieving economic stability for various sectors and members of the community.

Sheikh Hamdan also visited the pavilions of Imkan Properties, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Aldar Properties, Dubai Holding, Dubai Investments Real Estate Company, Meraas Development, Nakheel, Falcon City of Wonders and Damac Properties.

He viewed the models and maps of residential, tourism, and entertainment projects being developed by these companies. He also interacted with the directors of these companies and learnt the strategic plans that they employ for the execution of these massive projects.

Dubai Properties, the real estate master developer behind some of the most prominent projects in the emirate, is taking part this year to showcase developments across key destinations including Business Bay, Dubailand, and Dubai Wharf.

It is also launching two new projects for sale at the exhibition: Marasi Towers in Marasi Business Bay and Amaranta – Phase 1 of Villanova in Dubailand.

Marwan Al Kindi, the executive director of sales and sales operations at Dubai Properties, said: "Over the years, Cityscape Global has gained tremendous momentum, becoming the leading real estate investment and development event in the region."

"Cityscape Global offers Dubai Properties the perfect platform to showcase our vision for our various innovative projects across the emirate, whilst demonstrating our ability to look to the future. Platforms like these enable us to create and sustain interest in our new launches, further leveraging our position as a leading master developer," stated Al Kindi.

This year, a host of new local and international participants will take part including Arada (Sharjah), Aldar (Abu Dhabi), Imkan (Abu Dhabi), Oriental Pearls (Dubai), and Northacre from the UK, as well as companies participating as part of the Bahrain and Pakistan pavilions, and the Korean Tourism Organisation.

Leading Saudi developer Artar Real Estate Development, is using Cityscape Global to showcase its 36-storey luxury residential tower, Mada Residences, opening in Downtown Dubai by the second quarter of 2018, and the spotlight this week is firmly on the property’s Signature Collection of nine elite 4-bedroom apartments.

“We’re also highlighting the fact that Mada Residences offer the only two-bedroom apartments with maids rooms in Downtown, making it the kind of property with exclusive features, extra quality and amenities that are in demand now from selective buyers in prime areas of Dubai,” remarked Firas Al Msaddi, CEO of fäm Properties, exclusive agents for the development.

Tom Rhodes, the exhibition director at Cityscape Global, said: "It is unmatched as an event that draws in the region’s real estate powerhouses as well as quality visitors that encompass the whole spectrum of the industry; from architects and brokers through to investors and end-users."

“Cityscape has also grown as a brand globally, with the Dubai event acting as the portfolio flagship, we now have a suite of events that branch into different markets around the world including Egypt, Turkey, Korea, Saudi Arabia, to name a few, as well as the decade-long Abu Dhabi exhibition and conference,” he remarked.

Cityscape Global 2017 also features the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets tonight (September 11), where pioneers at the forefront of the emerging real estate market will be celebrated at a glittering ceremony followed by a cocktail evening, held at the prestigious Conrad Hotel Dubai.

Designed to enable visitors and investors to make well-informed investment decisions, Cityscape Talks offer a platform on the show floor to learn more about the opportunities available at the exhibition.

Industry sessions with a focus on key themes for real estate brokers, architects, engineers, and other professionals will be up for discussion, said the organisers.
