Abu Dhabi – MENA Herald: The seventh edition of the International Real Estate and Investment Show (IREIS 2015), set to run from 29 October to 31 October at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), will include an International Networking Day, to provide UAE-based investors, local real estate agents and international developers with a platform to connect and build synergies around potential investment opportunities in global real estate markets.

Held in collaboration with OPP Events (UK), the networking event is expected to draw the participation of 10 – 15 international developers from the UAE and abroad. It will give investors and developers an opportunity to increase their agent and broker network through holding one-to-one meetings and informal networking activities.

The only dedicated real estate event that targets investors and end-users rather than trade visitors, IREIS 2015 is anticipated to attract many leading exhibitors and investors from the region who will showcase a diverse array of property investment opportunities within the UAE and worldwide.

Dony Cyril, Exhibitions Director, IREIS 2015, said: ‘Finding the right agents with the right expertise and knowledge on the market is crucial to increasing sales and maximising returns on investment in today’s increasingly competitive real estate landscape. In convening the ‘International Networking Day’, we aim to facilitate this much needed interaction between some of the best international developers and local agents looking to add more international stock to their account books.”

Dony added: “The networking event will complement the bigger exhibition and provide an exciting opportunity for UAE-based investors keen to leverage their participation to gain insights on strategic investment opportunities in international markets. This landmark real estate show will help them explore new international property investment opportunities and build business relationships with property developers, sellers and key stakeholders in the local market.”

IREIS 2015 is being convened at a time when the value of Middle East investments in real estate outside the region surged 64 per cent to US$11.5 billion in H1 of 2015, according to a recent report from CBRE, the world’s leading commercial property and real estate services adviser, making the Middle East the third-largest source of cross regional capital globally.

IREIS 2015 will also host the first ever Pakistan Property Exhibition that aims to encourage international and Pakistani expatriates to invest in the real estate sector in Pakistan. The event will bring together developers, real estate advisers, private and institutional dealers from the Middle East, Europe and Asia Pacific regions under one roof.  

Additionally, IREIS 2015 will host a number of associated initiatives including an international conference, project presentations, business networking meetings and investor exchanges to help regional and international investors gain a broad perspective on new market realities. The three-day exhibition will facilitate reliable information for investors through business networking opportunities with top executives, regional and international investors, developers, and investment promotion specialists.

IREIS 2015 is supported by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), Abu Dhabi Chamber, Abu Dhabi events, along with local and international government investment houses.

DOME Exhibitions, organisers of IREIS 2015, hosts exhibitions in the emirate of Abu Dhabi to help UAE businesses extend their reach and enhance their visibility on the global marketplace.
