A high-level delegation from Dubai Land Department (DLD) participated in the 68th World Congress of the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI), which was held in the European state of Andorra from 23rd to 28th May. Dubai made a prominent appearance at the event, which took place under the slogan ‘Smart City, Smart Building’, as the Emirate will host the next edition under the theme ‘Happy Cities’ from 27th April to 2nd May 2018.

Mahmoud Al Burai, Executive Director of Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI) – the educational arm of DLD – commented: “Dubai participated at this year’s congress with a major platform to inform delegates of what we will be presenting at the ‘Happy Cities’ edition next year. Dubai is perfectly positioned to organise major international events and this has allowed us to gain the trust of delegates from across the world. Dubai was voted to host this important event due to this exceptional reputation and the concerted efforts made by a number of our official institutions – notably the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and Emirates Airline. We are confident in our ability to organise a unique edition that is aligned with our vision of making Dubai the world’s leading destination for innovation, confidence and happiness.”

During the event, Mahmoud Al Burai delivered a presentation highlighting investment prospects in Dubai and the regulations that have been introduced to guarantee the rights of all parties in this sector. Dubai also took this opportunity to launch the official website for the 69th edition – www.fiabcidubai.com – in order to promote it among the attendees and inform them of the busy agenda they can expect. The presentation also shed light on the unique opportunities that the UAE and Dubai in particular can offer visitors and investors.

The FIABCI conference is an essential platform for those working in the real estate sector, as it provides them with the latest knowledge, allows them to exchange ideas and visions, and promotes international trade links and partnerships. It is a global network that is open to all stakeholders in the industry, which promotes business and trade opportunities, and shares information and best practices at local, regional and global levels.

The network includes over 100 real estate companies, 1.5 million real estate professionals, 60 academic institutions and 3,000 companies and individuals directly associated with the real estate sector, including brokerage firms, real estate developers, lawyers, engineers, and insurance and planning experts. The systems and materials presented at the event are being shared and deployed in four key regions: Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.

The International Real Estate Federation was founded in Paris, France in 1948, to serve as the world’s leading authority in recognising and honouring specialised activities and projects across various real estate categories including office, residential and commercial buildings, leisure facilities, hotels, hospitality and many more. The Federation welcomes anyone directly involved in real estate activities to join its membership in order to disseminate best practices that benefit individuals, cities and societies around the world.
