An array of affordable apartment complexes, coastal residences, and ultra-modern villas will be showcased at this year’s Cityscape Egypt, proving that the real estate industry is optimistic about the market’s prospects for 2017.
“While there has been a strong increase in new exhibitor numbers, we have also noticed a trend, in major exhibitors increasing their presence at the show,” says Tom Rhodes, Exhibition Director of Cityscape Egypt. “The show is a sell-out with over 15,000 sqm of floor space confirmed, a clear indication that while there are a few challenges in the market, sentiment and demand remains steadfast. A look at several new residential developments billed to be unveiled at this year’s show is evidence of this.”
