Cityscape Global 2017 was awash with high-profile project launches and announcements.

Inaugurated by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, on 11 September, the emirate’s largest annual property exhibition saw 300 exhibitors from both regional and international markets descend on Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) for the three-day event.

Now in its 16th year, Cityscape Global provided an ideal platform for developers to unveil their upcoming buildings and communities, and to engage with thousands of prospective customers. The exhibition witnessed project launches from a string of the industry’s biggest players, including Aldar Properties, Azizi Developments, Deyaar Development, Jumeirah Golf Estates, National Bonds Corporation (NBC), and Union Properties (UP).

Meanwhile, those responsible for organising Expo 2020 Dubai used this year’s Cityscape Global to unveil their legacy-related plans. Located in Dubai South, the 2km2 District 2020 development represents a core component of the emirate’s strategy to reuse 80% of Expo 2020’s site infrastructure once the world’s fair has concluded in 2021 (page 14).

In addition to providing the ideal launch pad for developers, this year’s Cityscape Global permitted exhibitors to conduct on-site sales for UAE-based projects for the first time.

In the following feature, Construction Week’s editorial team rounds up its pick of the top launches, partnerships, and off-diary news from the show floor.
