The first day of the event attracted a fresh wave of investors to Dubai by highlighting the Emirate’s attractive real estate investment environment and offering buyers exclusive deals on properties from leading UAE developers. We would like to thank all of our partners for the important role they have played in bringing this festival to life.”
