This is one of the largest gatherings of real estate legal professionals in the Middle East, and a wide range of topics will be discussed:

  • Global market mega trends. What will tomorrow's cities look like? 
  • Location, location, location: is that no longer the question? And how is technology reshaping the industry. 
  • The impact of Sharia law and principles on real estate transactions. 
  • Internationalism of real estate law and practice, cross border issues and challenges. 
  • Alternative ways to gain exposure to real estate: REITs, funds, time-share, crowd funding, membership schemes and co-investment.
