The campaign saw a major response from real estate investors from around the world, with Dubai’s major property developers offering a wide range of real estate projects.

Her Excellency Majida Ali Rashid, Assistant Director General and Head of the Real Estate Investment Management and Promotion Center, commented: “We are proud of this great achievement, which was made possible by our partners and transformed Dubai into an exceptional three-day attraction for those looking for world-class investment opportunities. Following the conclusion of the events, we would like to express our deep gratitude to all those who contributed to their success, including strategic supporters, partners, organisers, developers and exhibitors from around the world. Dubai has once again proved its ability to organise leading events that provide residents and visitors with valuable investment opportunities, whether in the local real estate market or in regional and global markets.”

The 14th edition of the International Property Show and the Dubai Property Festival are the first events of their kind to provide a platform for local and international real estate markets to showcase their residential and commercial real estate properties. The ‘Mega Property Sale’ campaign attracted a large numbers of visitors who focused on exploring all of the real estate projects offered by the developers.

Dawood Al Shezawi, Head of the DPF Organising Committee, said: “Through these events, we successfully provided everything that developers, investors and buyers are looking for, and we were very pleased to receive praise from those who we helped to achieve their goals. This is primarily due to the precise organisation of the exhibition and the festival, and the projects and services it included. High reliability and confidence in the real estate offerings and products were also key factors in this success, as well as the variety of new products, projects, offers and exclusive releases.”

Al Shezawi concluded: “The UAE’s political stability and sustained economic growth have encouraged global investors to take the decision to capitalise on the high return on investment in the booming real estate market. Dubai has reinforced its exceptional appeal and reputation as the preferred real estate destination for investors from around the world.”
