Limitless, the global master development arm of Dubai World, is en-route to France to showcase nine projects – valued at over US$100 billion – at MIPIM, which kicks off in Cannes on 11 March.
Limitless – exhibiting at MIPIM for the first time – will display developments in Malaysia, Jordan, Russia, India, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Among them: Malaysia International Halal Park, announced last week; Limitless Towers, unveiled in Jordan earlier this month; Arabian Canal, the 75km man-made waterway under construction in Dubai; and Halong Star in Vietnam which, in December 2007, became Limitless’ first overseas project to break ground.
Saeed Ahmed Saeed, Chief Executive Officer of Limitless, said: “The Limitless philosophy of delivering distinction applies to every aspect of our work, including the partners we choose to work with, the developments we produce and the people we employ. AT MIPIM we will show how our developments will add a new dimension to the way millions of people will live and work – for generations to come – in many parts of the world.
“Limitless was formed less than three years ago with the aim of taking the Dubai real estate experience international. We have made a remarkable start in establishing ourselves as a leading, highly respected global master developer, with nine projects underway, eight overseas offices and some of world’s most talented, experienced people working for us. And we are growing day by day, constantly adding more and more people, places and projects – many of which will be announced this year – to our portfolio.”
