Pakistan Property Exhibition is the pioneering property event targeting Non-Resident Pakistanis (NRPs) living across the world. The event brings together leading developers and real estate agents from Pakistan to the international real estate investment market where thousands of high-net-worth Pakistanis amasses among 1.21 million Pakistani expatriates.

Dony Cyril, Exhibitions Director of Dome Exhibitions, the organizers of the event, said: “Pakistan and Pakistanis around the world are emerging as major economic power and investor segment. Over 1.21 million Pakistani population concentrated only in UAE, apart from millions other living in UAE’s neighbouring countries – Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman – makes economic sense to capitalize and create investment opportunities for them.”
“Over the past edition of the exhibition, we saw Pakistani Investors swarming to the show, which is dedicated only to help them find a good home in their country. With the support of Jang Group, the largest media house in Pakistan, co-organizer of the event, we chose high-quality and reputed real estate developers and brokers in Pakistan to come up and present their high-yielding properties not only to Pakistani migrants, but also to non-Pakistanis who would like to invest in Pakistan in the wake of country’s fast improving developments,” Dony added.

Muhammad Iqbal Dawood, President of Pakistan Business Council Dubai, said: “Pakistanis being the second largest expat community in UAE - 12.5%, there is a massive buyer segment for the properties available in different cities of Pakistan. I am sure the developers who have good track record and reputation in Pakistan will see good sales at Pakistan Property Exhibition in Abu Dhabi.”
