DTZ Qatar, today announced its association with Cityscape Qatar to host the Cityscape Market Overview this year. The market overview will cover some of the industry’s most pressing concerns such as the adoption of professional standards, the sustainability of Qatar’s real estate market beyond 2022, and the current market situation and future projections. The international real estate advisory will be launching its Q1 2016 report on the opening day of Cityscape Qatar, 26 April 2016.   

Commenting on DTZ Qatar’s involvement in Cityscape Qatar this year, Edd Brookes, the General Manager of the real estate advisory, said: “We are preparing a programme that aims to address the current and future situation in the Qatar real estate market. Our objective is to lead a discussion about possible solutions to many of the challenges that our industry faces as well as identify the opportunities for growth. We will be looking at sustainability in the market and how to ensure long-term progress beyond the FIFA World Cup 2022. As our 2015 fourth quarter report highlighted, we are seeing a slight decline in some prime real estate market, partially due to government budget adjustments; however, this is currently countered by the demand in low to mid income housing. The demand within this segment of the rental market continues to mean that finding apartments for rent in Doha remains challenging.”

DTZ Qatar will also host the panel discussion providing a platform for the exchange of expertise and insights on the Qatar property market. Preceding the panel, a high-level one-to-one interview will take place between Nasser Al Ansari, Chairman, Just Real Estate and Edd Brookes. The Market Overview, panel and interview is expected to be attended by major international, regional and local real estate players.

Iman Eissa, Contents Events Director of Cityscape Qatar, said: “Cityscape Qatar is the largest real estate event held in the country. We have enjoyed a long relationship with DTZ Qatar. Our content this year will focus on current pressing topics that are becoming increasingly difficult to avoid. With DTZ’s Q1 2016 market report newly released, we will have some fresh insights to add depth to our discussions at Cityscape.  Our goal is to provide content that is compelling to our visitors and this year will be no exception.”

DTZ Qatar released its Q4 2015 market report in January this year, which gave a comprehensive picture of Qatar’s property market. The report gave an impartial overview of Qatar’s office, residential, hospitality and retail property markets. The Cityscape Qatar Market Overview, being held as part of Cityscape Qatar, is an invitation-only event taking place on 26 April 2016 at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC).
