Running in parallel to the exhibition, the Cityscape Abu Dhabi Conference took place during the first day of the show under the theme: Rewriting the Rule Book – Generating Growth in Abu Dhabi Real Estate. Four main sessions were discussed: Real Estate Industry Trends in 2018, The 4th Industrial Revolution, Investment in Abu Dhabi, and Affordable Housing.
One of the speakers at the conference, Muhammed Binghatti, CEO and Head of Architecture at Binghatti Developers believes continued investment in real estate is playing a key role in sustaining the emirate as the government expands its efforts to diversify revenue streams.
He said, “The market’s performance has been improving since Abu Dhabi’s government is taking several measures aimed at diversifying the economy and reducing the extensive dependence on oil prices and the recurring impacts that may accompany it.
“More funds have been invested in sectors such as health, energy, tourism and transport and manufacturing. Additionally, Abu Dhabi offers a profitable environment for investors as it strengthened by high-quality infrastructure, 100% exemption from income and corporate tax, and a high political stability.”
Cityscape Talks are also running during the three days of the show, providing an interactive platform for visitors of the exhibition to learn from experts about the latest industry trends. Today’s talks covered various topics such as Dubai real estate market, Abu Dhabi residential market activity and global trends.
