Cityscape Global exhibition space sold out
Dubai, August 25, 2013
Organisers of a major property event to be held in Dubai have announced that the available exhibition space has sold out six weeks ahead of time.
The 12th edition of the Cityscape Global 2013, will take place from October 8 to 10 at the Dubai World Trade Centre and has been extended to two additional exhibition halls this year.
Over 200 international and regional exhibitors are set to take part in the real estate event and this will be the largest it has been in four years, said a statement from organiser Informa Exhibition.
“With Cityscape Global being the barometer of the local and international real estate market, we were always anticipating continued growth of the show. The demand for exhibition space that we have received over the last couple of months in particular, however, has been quite overwhelming,” said Wouter Molman, exhibition director of Cityscape Global.
“There is definitely a heightened buzz about the exhibition this year which has resulted in the difficult decision to turn away exhibitor requests because we simply don’t have any more space to accommodate them,” he said.
Molman added that he expects a large number of major announcements to be made by participating exhibitors both leading up to, and during Cityscape Global, as developers work hard behind the scenes to build up investor interest to coincide with the three-day event.
This year will also see an increased participation from Qatar-based companies, with major projects from key developers Barwa Real Estate Company, Mall of Qatar, Msheireb Properties, and United Development Company, said the statement.
Another stand that will be a major attraction will be the Dubai-based Diamond Developers, which will showcase its Dh1 billion ($272.2 million), 46-hectare Dubai Sustainable City development, the emirate’s first fully sustainable real estate project, it said.
Turkey represents the largest out of eight international pavilions this year, as more than 30 companies take over 1,500 sq m of exhibition space, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
