“The event will provide a strong support to the sector and all stakeholders, by addressing the most important real estate topics, and shedding light on the most prominent challenges and opportunities in the region. The dialogue will contribute to shaping the future of real estate and will lead to the development of solutions that will contribute to enhancing the growth of the real estate market in Dubai.
”At the opening ceremony, HE Mattar Al Tayer said: “The real estate sector is vital for the growth of the national economy and it actively contributes to the prosperity of Dubai; it is fundamental to the urban expansion and development of the city.“
“The Government of Dubai strives to provide the necessary support for this sector in a way that effectively contributes to its enhanced performance and continuing success.“The Cityscape Real Estate Summit is the largest knowledge sharing platform for real estate in the region and it provides opportunity for the international real estate community namely developers, investors, and financial institutions, as well as industry experts and professionals to gather under one roof.”
HE Al Marri, Director General of DTCM, then put the spotlight on real estate and the tourism sector in a session titled ‘What’s Next for Dubai’s Tourism Sector’, as he took the audience through Dubai’s strategy in adapting its tourism strategies for a post-pandemic world.He said: “We have seen a very large interest in the new visa programs – with tens of thousands registering interest – and this is due in part to the attractive environment of living in Dubai. And now with the two-month travel visa, we’ve seen an influx of interest with a tremendous demand from the United Kingdom and the United States.
This will have a positive impact not only for the tourism sector but also for real estate.”This year’s special edition of Cityscape was co-created with regional real estate industry stakeholders as a direct response to market demand for a business-to-business meeting place and knowledge sharing destination following the Covid-19 pandemic.A focal point for the VIP tour, DLD’s Dubai REST application was announced as the first digital real estate platform in Dubai that encompasses all transactions and allows investors and owners to make investment decisions through a complete set of digital transactions without the need for paper documents, reducing procedures.
