Gulf News to be title sponsor for World Wide Property Show 2009

Al Nisr Group, together with Worldwide Shows and Events, has signed deal for the Gulf News to be the title sponsor for the Worldwide Property Show in 2009, the contract of which could be renewed every two years.

The Grand Hyatt Dubai show due to be held between 29th and 31st October, will now be known as Gulf News Worldwide Property Show.

The Worldwide Property Show is one of the few realty exhibitions to have survived, despite meeting the Gulf War, 9/11, the Sars epidemic and the current global recession.

Launched in 1995 in the UAE, the show is now the longest running property show in the Middle East. The show has also successfully reached Singapore, Hong Kong, Boston, Bahrain, Zurich, Seoul, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Doha and Muscat.

Apart from developers within the UAE, the event also includes participants from overseas, thereby offering the right platform for Emirati investors and buyers to find homes for investment, holidays or for retirement both locally and abroad.

The show had successfully drawn more than 60 participants from 32 countries with about 3900 or more visitors attending the three day show last year.

According to George Betz, International Sales Director at Worldwide Shows and Events, the interest in overseas real estate is definitely back on several investors’ agenda, with US, England and Asia considered as hot spots.

The Gulf News, being one of the leading newspapers in the region, the agreement will offer additional exposure to the show both for local and international exhibitors, he added.

The organizers of the show also plan to take the show to Singapore and Beijing over the next six months, as the property market shows marked improvement, globally.
