ABU DHABI- DOME Exhibitions announced earlier this month that the next edition of the annual International Real Estate and Investment Show (IREIS 2014) will be held in Abu Dhabi from 20-22 November this year at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. The three-day real estate event, which will provide a snapshot into property markets in the Middle East, Europe and the Asia Pacific region, will include more than 100 exhibitors from over 30 countries and is expected to draw 15,000 visitors, many of them high net worth individuals.
The sixth edition of this annual event will gather key investors, developers, financiers, property advisors, real estate consultants, architects as well as regional and international investment promotion authorities related to the real estate sector. It will feature a number of associated events including an international conference, country-specific presentations, business network meetings and investor meetings, among others.
According to World Population Review, the UAE has a very diverse population, of which 87% are expatriates and 13% are UAE nationals. IRES is aiming to leverage the strong presence of expatriates in UAE who are looking to buy properties in their home countries by attracting international real estate firms to showcase their latest offerings. The show will also allow Abu Dhabi based investors who are seeking to invest in international markets to explore opportunities abroad by attending international conferences, investor meets and network seminars held on the sidelines of the event.
With migrants from different parts of the world flocking to the emirate on account of its peaceful political and flourishing business climate, the Abu Dhabi property market itself is on the threshold of immense growth as expatriates flock to make the right real estate investments. In this setting, IREIS 2014 will offer investors an opportunity to learn about and to purchase the finest property both within the emirate and outside.
Antoine Georges,Managing Director DOME Exhibitions, said: “We are delighted to present the sixth edition of IREIS in Abu Dhabi. IREIS has witnessed growth in line with the increasing number of people migrating to the capital city.”
“With Abu Dhabi’s population set to grow to 3.1 million people by 2030, the successful growth of the real estate sector is vital to the economy. Holding such an event here has become a sheer necessity to serve its growing population. Attracting some of the world’s most prominent players, IREIS 2014 will also seek to highlight opportunities and facilitate potential deals in international markets beyond the UAE.”
