WHY IS THE MIDDLE EAST THE BIG OPPORTUNITY?
- UAE's interior design market seeing post-Covid boom with the rebound being fuelled by some of Dubai’s highest property sales in 12 years and rising property and rental prices.
- The UAE's very own megaproject, EXPO 2020, will be transformed following the event end in April 2022. The gigantic site will require a full rebuild and refit for hospitality, residential and corporate offices.
- The International Construction Market Survey 2021 (Turner & Townsend) describes tenders in UAE as warm and in Riyadh as overheating. With the largest international delegations attending INDEX from Saudi Arabia to source for projects.
- The UAE ranked first in the world for COVID-19 response, with large-scale events already returning giving confidence as an established location for ease of travel and trade.
Dubai has managed the Covid crisis very well, which reassured many companies to continue their expansion plans. Many companies are also moving to Dubai as they recognise the benefit and potential of this city. Expo 2020 will definitely attract attention to Dubai and what this city can offer. The energies will be very positive! So different industries should benefit from it in the long term

Many of the RIBA regional practices are very busy, with activity picking up in the market as the region looks forwards. Governments are all now thinking about how they can best serve their citizens and attract visitors with fresh projects that are true to the Gulf’s spirit

It’s no exaggeration to say the interior design market is going gangbusters. I haven’t seen this much-frenzied demand for ID and architecture services since 2014 – the last big boom. So, we’re hiring people on a weekly basis. Competitors are poaching our staff, which is fair enough – there’s a war for talent and it’s a free market
