Cairo is to host the Egypt Real Estate Summit, under the auspices of the Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development, for the second year in a row.
The Egypt Real Estate Summit, the leading real estate community platform, will be held in Cairo with an impressive keynote lineup. The summit will be focusing on capitalising new investment and development opportunities following the democratic election of President Mohamed Morsi and the appointment of a technocratic government.

Industry leaders will showcase investment opportunities that offer solutions to current market challenges. Participants will benefit from local and global expertise, and gain a comprehensive perspective of the real estate sector trends and future developments.
