We were keen to highlight our developments over the past months, especially regarding our digital and smart communication channels that we displayed to a wide global audience during the event. This confirmed our competence and ability to keep pace with the latest technologies of the era and its various challenges.”

DLD’s team briefed visitors on the features of its updated website, including its facilitated navigation, the real estate services, and the many technical improvements to ensure customer satisfaction and happiness, while providing them with the best services.

Bin Mejren added: “We worked over the past years to develop our digital and smart solutions to cater to all real estate transactions, according to our plans and programmes that are consistent with the comprehensive vision of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into the world’s smartest city over the coming years.
