Message from the Committee Chair

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the CoreNet Global Middle East Chapter website. 

The Middle East Chapter, with its focus on the Corporate Real Estate Occupiers, in addition to offering education, networking and the exchange of knowledge amongst peers, aims to bring best practices to the region as well as sharing home grown initiatives that add value to the corporate occupier. We also seek to educate landlords and property owners in the region and develop the real estate industry for the betterment of the end user / occupier.

The Middle East and Dubai specifically, continues to witness growth and ever increasing maturity in the real estate markets. Landlords attitudes are slowly changing with regards to property management, preventative maintenance, open book accounting for service charges and sustainability.  Our monthly networking events offer a great opportunity to keep abreast of change and innovation in the local marketplace whilst offering the perfect environment for networking amongst peers, supply chain representatives and developers alike.  We actively encourage and incentivize student membership and are open to any requests for assistance from the local Educational Institutions..

With a growing number of local members covering a broad range of industries from the banking and finance, legal, engineering, FMCG and healthcare industries, we encourage all those involved in real estate to attend one of our events to experience a relaxed environment of industry professionals exchanging experiences and knowledge.

CoreNet Global is accepted as the best in class forum for real estate specific learning and networking, and we would encourage all of our members to participate in our learning and training activities which now includes for MCR Modules and asks that you promote the same amongst your colleagues with a view to improving standards in our profession of choice.  The Middle East Chapter is recognized throughout the CoreNet Global networks as an extremely proactive chapter and have recently succeeded in securing finalist positions for the Global Young Leader and CRE Executive of the Year Competition from amongst our membership locally.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our events soon.
