Cityscape, Egypt’s most influential property exhibition, came to a close on Saturday, with four days of high visitor numbers reflecting the genuine investor confidence in the country’s real estate market.
The 9th edition of the event took place at Egypt International exhibition Centre (EIEC) from 4-7 November with the support from the Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities, succeeded in attracting a high visitor turnout through new launches, exclusive deals and discounts from over 50-plus leading property developers.
Faariss Khalil, Exhibition Manager for Cityscape in Egypt, said: “This year’s edition of Cityscape was a great success both in terms of stakeholder engagement and footfall. With over 50 developers showcasing projects, and high turnout of investors and homebuyers in search of investment opportunities, it highlighted the importance of the event in bringing all sides together, enabling the industry, and supporting the ‘back to business’ approach that the industry is taking.”
The event opened on Wednesday with Khaled Abbas, Deputy Minister of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities visiting a number of exhibitor stands for detailed briefings and updates, and over the four days of the show, a large number of real estate developers showcased their new launches including Sorouh Developments, The Land Developers, Master Builder Group Development, Altameer Arabian and CityEdge Developments.
