Cityscape Egypt postponed... again

The Cityscape Egypt property show, scheduled for November 25 to 28 in Cairo, has been postponed until February over concerns the event would be disrupted by the scheduled elections.

The show was originally slotted for April, but was rescheduled to November in the wake of the political upheaval in the country.

"We had no choice then and we had no choice now," said Rohan Marwaha, managing director of Cityscape. "If we want to run a successful event we can't really run during the election period."

Interest remains high in the Egyptian property market, with analysts predicting strong demand for housing, offices and hotels. More than 70 per cent of the space on the exhibition show floor was sold, Mr Marwaha said.
