Dubai Land Department (DLD) has announced that Dubai has been chosen to host the First Arab Land Conference, which will be held between 26 -28 February 2018.

The conference will address many of the most-challenging land-related issues in Arab countries, including how to manage land to reduce conflicts, and how to maximize the use of land and real estate for individuals, countries, and society as a whole. In addition to being a platform for knowledge sharing, the conference will work towards enhancing regional cooperation, capacity development, and innovation in land management and real estate reform in order to promote social and economic development in the Arab region.

His Excellency Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of DLD, said: "It was not a coincidence for Dubai to be chosen to host the First Arab Land Conference in partnership with the leading international institutions related to the real estate sector. The choice was due not only to Dubai's leading position on the global real estate stage — which has become a unique model in aspects related to real estate development, but also because of Dubai's pioneering activities in various fields related to sustainable development, environmental conservation, the application of the highest green building standards, and maximizing the use of land necessary for people's lives".

The conference will be open to all interested parties including those employed in the real estate sector, individuals, companies and institutions, government officials, academics, students, real estate brokers and developers. Registration is available here:
