“Following the conclusion of a successful Cityscape Egypt 2018, we turn our attention towards Cityscape Global, which will be held in Dubai from October 2nd until the 4th. This year, we have decided to include a dedicated Egyptian pavilion, which will highlight the wealth of real estate investment opportunities available in Egypt to Egyptian expatriates in the UAE – the third largest Egyptian expatriate community in the world – and international visitors to the show,” concluded Speller.
Egypt’s leading developers touted their latest projects, with most developments featuring a strong emphasis on lifestyle and community living, a popular trend in the Egyptian residential market. Exhibitors showcased neighbourhoods complete with community retail facilities, as well as education and healthcare facilities.
Some of this year’s most prominent projects included: Coast 82 from Hyde Park Developments; Blues Tiffany from Platinum Sponsor, PROJECTS; Tatweer Misr’s Fouka Bay, Bloomfields, and IL Monte Galala; October Plaza from SODIC; Mousa Coast from Misr Italia; and Talaat Moustafa Group showcased Madinaty and Al Rehab City, in New Cairo, and Four Seasons Sharm El-Sheikh.
The show kicked off on a high note following a visit from the Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development, Moustafa Madbouly, who announced the government’s plans for the real estate sector at the start of the show, revealing that they would be auctioning more than 75,000 land plots next month, with the Minister saying that Cityscape Egypt “reflects the strength of the real estate sector and illustrates the trust that investors have in the sector”.
Earlier in March, Cityscape Egypt Conference kicked off two weeks before the exhibition and included real estate experts, several government authorities, prominent Egyptian developers and thought-leaders who put the spotlight on challenges and opportunities in the sector under the theme: Re-inventing a real estate destination; strategy, valuation and branding.
Following the conclusion of a successful two-day Cityscape Egypt Conference, the Cityscape Awards for Real Estate in Egypt illustrated advances in the real estate sector by recognising outstanding concepts in real estate development and architecture. Held at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza, the Awards celebrated 33 distinguished projects who were in the running, from culturally integrated city skylines to mixed-use urban communities from across Egypt.
The 8th edition of Cityscape Egypt is set to take place from March 27th until the 30th, 2019 at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre, New Cairo.
