The finalists for the Gulf Real Estate Awards 2018 have been announced ahead of the two-day event, which is to be held in Dubai in March.

Now in its second year, the event is the Middle East’s premier real estate awards event, which recognises and rewards excellence in an industry that continues to define the region – and its host city in particular.

With the industry continuing to blaze a trail across the Gulf, the awards have become even more relevant, and all eyes will be on Dubai on March 20 – 21, when entrants will present their cases to an expert judging panel, who will decide the winners of each of the 20 categories.

The categories include Best Luxury and Affordable Real Estate Project, Best Marketing Campaign, and Best Employer.

From these winners, which will be revealed at a gala dinner and ceremony on March 21, an Overall Winner for 2018 will be selected to take home the most significant award trophy of the event, which is hosted by Awards International UAE.

The judging panel for 2018 contains a line-up of real estate experts, government figures, and widely recognised industry personalities, including Mohammad Shadi Hamwi, CEO and Chief Architect of First Art Engineering Consultancy; Mohammed Khalifa Bin Hammad, the Senior Director of the Real Estate Relations Regulatory Agency; and Dr Ishtar Jasim Al Yasri, the Media Office Manager with the Dubai Land Department.

Meanwhile, partnering the awards this year are organisations including the Dubai Real Estate Institute, Biznet Consulting, and Construction Business News, among others. Click here for a full list of awards partners.

Speaking as the finalists were revealed, Awards International UAE Managing Director Mark Hamill said:

“As we continue into 2018, the real estate sector shows no sign of slowing down in Dubai or the wider Middle East. This continued growth places the Gulf Real Estate Awards at the forefront of the movement to reward and celebrate those who strive to innovate and construct the landscape of the future.
This year we have an exciting, diverse shortlist of finalists, to whom I would like to offer congratulations. The hard work starts now, as the finalists plan their presentations for the judges, and I would like to wish each and every one luck as they prepare for the awards finals.”
