Driven by advances in technology and globalised competition, the real estate sector is becoming highly customer-centric.

For any organisation that builds, manages, consults or invests in revenue-generating assets, across residential, commercial or retail, the market globally is ripe to revisit and leverage emerging technology solutions to increase asset value and ensure ongoing attractiveness to current and future occupiers.

In the GCC, particularly for family-run businesses, real estate is a key pillar of investment strategy. Accordingly, there is a high level of interest in how new technologies can make investment assets more profitable.
