Major initiatives include allowing people to officially work from home for the first time in the history, new building regulations for reducing costs for developers and encourage urban development, and elimination of red-tape which creates unnecessary delays in payments to the private contractors.
Antoine Georges, Managing Director of DOME Exhibitions, said: “We are privileged to have ADIO with us that will prove to be one-stop-shop for our exhibitors and trade visitor who decide to invest in Abu Dhabi.

Dr. Nick Coles, Conference Director, DOME Exhibitions, said:: “In 10 years of IREIS, we have learned how to give maximum benefit to our international and local exhibitors. We have been thinking and trying different sides of IREIS to bring more value to the event, exhibitor and the UAE. We started Abu Dhabi Investment Forum to brainstorm how well we can fit with UAE’s future growth strategy, increase investor confidence and FDI to UAE. We extended the main show to International pavilion, which gives a lucrative platform to local and international companies to network, explore and expand “.
