This is bigger than any Soccer World Cup or Olympic Games by some margin. Dubai is hosting the next World Expo in October 2020. The announcement of the Expo in Dubai has boosted the off-plan property sector and it is mostly the reason why almost 50 buildings (35 to 112 storeys high) are in various stages of completion. The Expo will attract an estimated 25 million visitors (huge!) from 180 countries during the 6-month period – it translates into about 4 million visitors per month! Investors who are buying property near the Expo highlights will receive exceptional high returns on investment – now before the expo, but also in future. The Expo’s duration is six months and millions of visitors will need to rent property. The rental demand will be high, enabling landlords the flexibility to increase rents during this time.
