Dubai Land Department launches Gulf Real Estate Awards
Dubai Land Department (DLD) has launched the first Gulf Real Estate Awards to recognise excellence in the real estate sector.
HE Sultan Butti Bin Mejren, Director General of the Land Department, said the awards came from the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, towards more innovation.
The event aims to promote and encourage best practices among developers and brokers, facilities management, engineering and legal services, contractors and consultants.
These awards have been launched following a considerable amount of effort and planning in line with our vision to be the first real estate destination globally in innovation, trust and happiness. Bin Mejren said at a press conference to launch the awards.
These awards are an expression of our commitment to stimulating innovation in the real estate sector, by inspiring creativity and exceptional practices that lead to sustainable growth in the Gulf region. These awards are an incentive for companies operating in the real estate sector to compete with each other and improve their services and projects.
