Abu Dhabi: Preregistered visitors for the upcoming Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2014, one of the emirate’s most prominent real estate show, have increased by 26 per cent compared to last year, according to the organisers.
Now in its eighth edition, Cityscape Abu Dhabi will be held from April 22–24 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec). More than 120 exhibitors from various countries,including Egypt, Turkey, Oman, Kuwait, India, Russia, UK, USA, and Qatar are expected to take part in the show.
The event will also see attendance from many investors, government authorities, architects, and professionals involved in real estate developments across the Middle East.
Informa Exhibitions, the organisers of Cityscape Abu Dhabi, said in a statement on Sunday that 16 per cent of preregistered visitors this year are looking for residential property investment opportunities. The figure marks a 20 per cent year-on-year increase.
A further eight per cent are looking to own a home — an increase of 24 per cent from 2013, reflecting a more long-term outlook.
“Cityscape Abu Dhabi attracted more than 15,000 participants in 2013, and early indications are that we will see a double digit increase of visitors this year to match the growth of the show, which itself will grow by between 10-20 per cent,” said Wouter Molman, director of Cityscape Group at Informa Exhibitions.
He added that the event is growing for the first time since 2009.
Among the highlights of this year’s exhibition is the Abu Dhabi Market Overview Executive Luncheon, which will put a spotlight on Abu Dhabi’s latest project development updates from the emirate’s largest developers.
