By Anitha Lakshminarayanan

Why should you buy a home in Dubai, and before I begin to elucidate the top insights about the market, it reminds me of a small story, Last week my friend Sheba and I were sitting on my balcony and chatting. Sheba was winding up and going back to India and she felt that she could’ve bought a home here that could give her rental returns even if she got back to her heritage, and wanted to live there. Sheba’s story stimulated me too and I was wondering whether to buy a home in Dubai and here a few facts to ponder over:

Comment of Mr. Ivano Iannelli, CEO of Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence (DCCE) following Earth Day Celebrations in the UAE

“The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has always been at the forefront to educate citizens across the country to practice and support sustainable initiatives, and the Earth Day activities this year were a testament of the country’s commitment to its efforts.

It was inspiring to witness the contributions made by the public and private sector on this important occasion, and some of the contributions can also be termed as best practices, which will serve as a benchmark for countries around the world.

The launch of sustainable initiatives, contributions and several other activities indicate the UAE’s determination to live life in better harmony with nature. This is not only commendable but also evidence of the future-focused vision of the UAE’s leadership to improve the community’s awareness that will safeguard the environment and educate the public.

Once again, the UAE has shown the power of collaboration, with the private and public sector working together to adopt sustainable and lasting solutions to address the challenges of tomorrow. It is indeed inspiring to see the collective efforts of the UAE come together to help reduce the impact of climate change.

As we all know, Earth Day is a global celebration of solidarity for the planet, and given the fragile state of our planet I’d say, we make every day Earth Day. From here on out, we need to shake off the apathy and embrace sustainable habits that help reduce waste and make the Earth greener. Let us all strive to create awareness and implement actions which will not only reduce the negative impact on the environment, but also underline the important role community members can play to reduce carbon footprint and conserve energy.

Just like small drops make an ocean, small individual efforts when taken together can create a huge impact for the planet. So, let’s all pledge to continue our sustainable efforts and make the Earth a cleaner and greener place.

Middle East Facilities Management Association set to hold 6th edition of Confex

 Outlook for sector remains positive with UAE expecting 8.5 per cent CAGR in five years

 March 5, 2017 The Middle East Facilities Management Association (MEFMA), the region’s leading platform for FM professionals, wider construction industry stakeholders and owner associations, has announced that it will hold its 6th edition of the Annual MEFMA Confex at the Address Hotel Dubai Marina, UAE, on March 13 and 14, 2017. This year’s edition will explore the multifaceted facilities management (FM) industry with a key focus on the people connecting each aspect of the sector.

 

Based on recent industry reports, the global outsourced FM industry is expected to be worth USD 1 trillion by 2025–with integrated services to have a fair share of 35 percent of the sector’s revenue by then. With these projections, the local FM segment is expected to have positioned itself as being at par with international standards and be recognised as a competitive player in the international market, which complements the UAE’s bid to become among the best countries providing world-class services in every aspect.

 

Two workshops on ‘Successful Implementation of Stakeholder Management in FM’ and ‘Career Development – Surviving and Thriving in the FM World’ will be held on the opening of the three-day event. The second day will feature panel discussions and several sessions on key themes and issues affecting the FM industry, particularly stakeholder management in FM, innovation and technology in FM, creating synergy through TFM, leadership in FM, and FM with the Owners Association Industry. High-profile speakers and panellists from major regional firms such as Emaar, Meraas, Initial Saudi, Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu, and CREDO, among others, are lined up.

 

There will also be a small exhibition showcasing the latest FM solutions and services on the sidelines of the event.

 

Jamal Abdulla Lootah, President of MEFMA, CEO of Imdaad said: “The regional FM industry remains robust following mega projects that continue to come up across various sectors. There is very high expectation in countries like the UAE where the compounded annual growth rate is seen to remain steady at around 8.5 percent during the next five years, given the serious efforts of the government to achieve the goals of UAE Vision 2021, particularly in infrastructure which is one of the key pillars of the nation. We look forward to exploring the ways in which the FM sector can contribute to achieving these goals during the three-day event.”

 

“The global outsourced FM industry is expected to be worth USD 1 trillion by 2025, with integrated services to have a fair share of 35 percent of the sector’s revenue by then. With these projections, we hope to bring the local FM sector at par with international standards and be a competitive player in the international market as the UAE bids to become among the best countries providing world-class services in every aspect,” Lootah noted.

 

“This year’s MEFMA Confex will address the growing demand for quality and professionalism in the FM sector and we aim to put at the heart of the discussion the importance of people working in facilities management as a career. Education is, therefore, a key factor given that the increasing trend across the UAE and the GCC FM market is to outsource FM services,” he concluded.

 

This year’s edition of the event is being held in partnership with key sponsors that include Cofely Besix Facility Management (Technical and Infrastructure Sponsor), Advanced Facilities Management (Catering Sponsor), United Facilities Management (FM Excellence Sponsor), Initial Saudi Group (Saudi FM Support Sponsor), Khansaheb Group FM (GCC-Wide FM Sponsor), GRAKO LLC (Cleaning Sponsor) and Imdaad (Energy Management Sponsor).

 

MEFMA is a non-profit organisation, which acts on behalf of the regional FM community to address concerns and provide a platform for its members as well as stakeholders to share their expertise, views and insights about the industry – from sustainability to the impact of digital transformation.
