Collaboration to promote Dubai’s real estate sector

Dubai Land Department (DLD) has announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Informa Middle East, organiser of the region’s foremost real estate platform, Cityscape, to focus its efforts on promoting Dubai as an attractive regional and international investment destination.

Reinforcing Dubai as a prime investment hub 

The agreement will also highlight the scope of real estate investment opportunities and showcase major projects to regional and international investors across all markets in the Cityscape portfolio. The MoU will additionally see DLD partner with various events within the growing global Informa portfolio. 

Dubai ranked highest on the list of global cities that are most attractive for foreign direct investment (FDI). As a result, Dubai has rapidly evolved into a global business and investment hub, and DLD looks forward to strengthening our Emirate's position and achieving consistent success in the industry, ensuring the sustainable growth of our real estate sector.

HE Sultan Butti Bin Mejren
Director General of DLD

Dubai is truly an important hub for investors from all over the world thanks to its buoyant economy, advanced infrastructure, high ROIs, transparent investor environment, and the legal and legislative structure that guarantees the rights of all parties. Regional and international investors are looking to invest in cities with these unique ingredients, and the ability to adapt to the demands of global markets and investors' expectations makes Dubai a shining example.

Cityscape runs events across the MENA region and international markets and has become the trusted meeting point for the property market to stimulate cross-border investments. The portfolio of events attracts a dynamic list of investors, homebuyers, developers, government authorities, and real estate professionals.
