Confidence in the property market is on the up as Doha prepares to host thousands of local and global real estate developers and investors when Cityscape Qatar opens tomorrow, organisers have said.
Running until April 25 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre under the patronage of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdulla bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, the seventh edition of Cityscape Qatar “will further drive confidence in the real estate sector” as local and international developers promote the latest property offerings, according to a statement.
This year’s show boasts of a lineup of up to 50 exhibitors across more than 9,000sq m of exhibition space, and will bring together heavyweight industry stakeholders from Qatar and abroad, including Turkey, Georgia, Cyprus, the US, Pakistan and the UK.
For home buyers and investors, the four-day exhibition will provide an opportunity to network, gain valuable market insight and take advantage of exclusive deals, special offers and payment plans on the show floor, the statement notes.

“Cityscape Qatar will give investors, developers and real estate professionals the opportunity to gain insight into the country’s evolving real estate market through a wide range of projects. Undoubtedly, the show has built up much demand through its appeal to all sectors of the real estate industry and is set to deliver a dynamic and profitable environment for all visitors,” he said.
