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.”
