Cityscape Qatar 2022 will showcase new highlights in addition to hundreds of real estate projects.

Cityscape, owned by Informa Markets, first took place in 2002 and has since grown to become one of the largest real estate data and media portfolios globally. The 10th edition of Cityscape Qatar, the country’s most prestigious and influential real estate investment, development and networking event, will be held at Doha Exhibition & Convention Centre from June 20 to 22.

Over recent years, the Gulf has experienced a relatively sluggish residential, hospitality and commercial real estate market. In Qatar, experts are now seeing shoots of recovery with the attraction of regional developers, the announcement of three museums in Doha from worldleading architects and international investors keen on opportunities in the country’s real estate market.

Chris Speller, Group Director of Cityscape, said: “Aligned with its National Vision 2030, Qatar is shifting its focus towards economic diversification and paving the way for real estate to be one of the main drivers. With the new Foreign Investment Law, the swift and decisive handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and the country playing host to the biggest sporting event in the world, Qatar is quickly becoming the attractive investment opportunity in the Gulf. “For Cityscape Qatar’s 10th edition this year, we’re looking to not only offer visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to see leading projects being launched onto the market but also providing a platform to discuss, inform and debate some of the industry’s most pressing concerns through the Cityscape Intelligence Talks being held on the show floor.”

The Cityscape Talks series are aligned with the four pillars of Qatar’s National Vision 2030: sustainability, resilience, affordability and liveability, and will feature speakers from both government entities and key realestate leaders, with each demonstrating how these pillars are gaining prominence and changing the future of real estate in Qatar. The conference agenda will cover topics such as: Big Opportunities for Qatar Real Estate: A Macroeconomic Perspective; The Future of Architecture in Qatar; and ESG – A Gamechanger for the GCC Real Estate Sector. Cityscape Qatar 2022 will also see the introduction of dq (design quarter) for the first time. This is a dedicated exhibition area for regional and international architecture and interior design firms to put a spotlight on their projects and innovations. ✤
