Real estate development in Dubai since the late 1990s has been a magnet for capital, imagination, speculation, and never-before-seen building projects. A place of extreme affluence on a mission to transform its economy away from its dependence on oil, Dubai has become a global city and business hub. The emirate’s main revenues are now from tourism, real estate, and financial services. In 2008 and 2009, Dubai’s property market experienced a major meltdown as part of the worldwide economic downturn. What’s next?

Join us in Babson’s first ever global CAG event to learn what happened during the rise, what the meltdown did to real estate development and the economy in today’s Dubai, and what’s next. We will specifically walk through the financing, design, and construction of Dubai’s ‘Palm Jumeirah’ which has become a global icon of what was until recently Dubai’s burgeoning economy. We will then discuss what we can expect in the coming years in the wake of the recent economic crisis.
