(MENAFN- Gulf Times) The first Qatar Real Estate Forum is set to begin Sunday under the auspices of HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim al-Thani.
Organised by the Ministry of Municipality, the two-day forum will be held at the Sheraton Doha under the theme of 'Regulations and Legislations for an Optimal Quality of Life and a Sustainable Real Estate Industry'.
The Qatar Real Estate Forum is an economic event and a dialogue platform for leaders, decision makers, experts and actors in the real estate sector at both the local and international levels.
It will see the participation of a number of ministers and CEOs from the real estate sector, alongside several related personalities from Qatar and abroad.
The forum will feature 35 keynote speakers and around 1,500 leaders, decision makers, experts and individuals actively engaged in the real estate sector both locally and internationally. It will highlight the best regional and international experiences and practices relevant to the real estate sector in order to bolster the process of creating a conducive environment for the sector and formulating essential approaches and mechanisms to manage and develop this sector in a way that best suits Qatar's ambitions in supporting and reviving this vital sector, since it leads the engine of development for numerous other sectors.
The event will include a number of panel discussions and workshops that address several key themes, such as future trends in the real estate sector, anticipating the future of the sector, real estate governance, digital innovation for a sustainable real estate industry, real estate in the post-FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 era, investors' journey between reality and hope, funding policies and mechanisms, as well as future cities for a better life quality.
The workshops will address topics such as mortgage systems and real estate funding, Qatari real estate investment (stages, challenges and solutions), real estate appraisal, international reference and professional practice, real estate development project management and facilities management programmes.
The forum's organising committee had earlier launched the forum's website, through which essential services and facilitations are being provided to the participants, while emphasising that it had streamlined the registration process. Logistical assistance has been provided to participants to follow up on issues such as accommodation and transportation, along with all other relevant logistical details during the two days of the forum.
The committee is also holding an accompanying exhibition on the sidelines of the forum to showcase the state-of-the-art technologies deployed in the sustainable real estate industry.
The Ministry of Municipality is organising the first edition of the Qatar Real Estate Forum in partnership with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Finance, in addition to Expo 2023 Doha and Qatari Diar.
The sponsors include United Development Company, Msheireb Properties, Alfardan Properties, GWC, Masraf Al Rayan, Doha Bank, Al Hazm, Gulf Times, Qatar Television and Qatar Finance and Business Academy, among others.
The organisation of the forum comes within the framework of the great interest that Qatar attaches to this vital sector, especially after the issuance of Amiri Resolution No. 28 of 2023 establishing the Real Estate Regulatory Authority, which is a pioneering and important step for the development of the real estate sector in Qatar, the Ministry of Municipality said in a statement.
The forum will include a broad range of platforms bringing together business leaders in the real estate sector at all levels, locally, regionally and internationally, to lay out a roadmap for the real estate development process, encourage young national talents working in this sector, and support the implementation of the sector's development strategy in Qatar and its outcomes in light of the current distinguished stature of Qatar as a prosperous financial, trading and economic hub.
