Real Estate Finance, Investment Analysis, Valuation & Modelling
Nov 21 – Nov 23 all-day

 

Overview

Real estate construction or investment requires a high level of technical expertise in building and using financial models if the building is to be profitable for its builder or owner. This has not always been available, with the result that a large percentage of real estate has been built or bought without the necessary understanding or planning to underpin decision making. The consequence of this lack of planning has often been disastrous.

The valuation profession, like many others, has to continuously upgrade and evolve especially in this dynamic real estate market in order to keep pace with one of the most active and profitable investment opportunities.

This course will teach you all the available techniques of real estate finance, investment and development, and how to apply them practically through the use of Excel, as well as providing insights into real estate modeling software such as Estatemaster and Argus. An extensive use of regional case studies will be adopted to illustrate the principles covered. Ultimately, you will get practical tips on layout and style in building and analysing user-friendly models which are available as additional benefits of attending the course.

Drainage & Flood Control Summit
Nov 26 – Nov 27 all-day

Rapid urbanization in Saudi Arabia is putting further strain in the existing municipal and civil amenities.

Transforming to the new normal

To tackle the challenge of sustained lower oil prices and the impending implementation of VAT, businesses need to diversify operating models to seize the opportunities brought about by an increasingly digitized society. A recent study showed that embracing digital transformation could generate US$16.9 billion in extra revenue each year for companies in the Middle East from 2017 to 2021. For this reason, the region’s businesses are embracing digital disruption to enhance their customer engagement as well as transform their traditional business offerings.

With this in mind, we are delighted to organize the Business Transformation Summit taking place from 5-7 December 2017 in Dubai, UAE, which aims to foster the alignment of business transformation with digital transformation in order to help enhance the core business offerings of all organizations. We aim to provide a forum where the key industries of the GCC can discuss and learn about the key transformations taking place in the market today.
