Cityscape Global, the Middle East’s largest property showcase upcoming in Dubai, UAE, has registered a 15 per cent increase in exhibitors for this year’s event, said event organisers.
The 14th edition of the event takes place this month (September 8 to 10) at the Dubai World Trade Centre. It will host more than 300 exhibitors in a significantly expanded exhibition arena.
The event has been extended by two additional exhibition halls – four more halls since the 2013 event – covering more than 40,000 sq m of space.
Headline exhibitors returning for 2015 include Emaar, Dubai Properties, Dubai World Central, Meydan, Meraas and Nakheel while first-time exhibitors include Kleindienst Group, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), Al Barari and Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
Cityscape Global is the annual meeting point for key real estate investors, developers, investment promotion authorities, architects, designers and other real estate professionals.
Wouter Molman, director of Cityscape Group said: “In 2014 we welcomed more than 47,000 participants; a 42 per cent year-on-year increase. With Cityscape Global set to be the largest it has been for six years, we expect a very strong turnout of visitors from all over the world.”
New to Cityscape Global is a complete overhaul of the co-located conferences, now taking place the day before the exhibition. The dedicated convention will bring together more than 800 senior real estate professionals.
The Facilities Management conference, jointly organised with Middle East Facilities Management Association (Mefma), and the Real Estate Brokers will run alongside the ‘Dubai Market Overview’ on September 7 at the Conrad Hotel, Dubai.
Also running in tandem with the exhibition is the Cityscape Awards for Emerging Markets, which attracts hundreds of entries from across emerging markets globally. Winners will be announced during a ceremony at the Conrad Hotel, Dubai on September 8.
