Cityscape Jeddah 2010, which took place from 7 – 9 June 2010 at the Jeddah Center for Forums and Events, featured over 90 exhibiting companies, was attended by over 9500 participants and subsequently was officially the largest real estate event ever held in Saudi Arabia.
Cityscape Jeddah has established itself over the last two years as the premier real estate event in Saudi Arabia and an essential networking arena for real estate developers, investors and service providers to showcase their projects and services.
Saudi Arabia is currently the fastest growing country in the Middle East region. With an estimated US$283 billion worth of projects under construction, real estate now makes up the largest non-oil economic sector in the Kingdom. The debilitating worldwide financial crisis is starting to alleviate and Saudi Arabia has shown a remarkable resistance through out this perios with infrastructure and real estate projects continuing unabated.
Cityscape Jeddah will once again serve as a platform to bring further transparency to this burgeoning market and introduce the Kingdom’s projects to an international, regional and local audience made up of investors and senior real estate professionals.
Running alongside the 3 day exhibition and informative conference, Cityscape Jeddah will once again play host to the Cityscape Awards for Real Estate in Saudi Arabia that will support real estate excellence within the Kingdom while recognising those companies and individuals who have been the vehicles for that excellence.
