The Pakistan Property Show 2019, organized by Zameen.com, Pakistan’s largest property portal, concluded successfully at the World Trade Center in Dubai.
The two day event came to an end on Saturday, and it is being lauded as a remarkable success, as the property portal succeeded in bringing together a thriving community of foreign investors and overseas Pakistanis seeking to invest in the residential and commercial real estate markets across the country. More than 60 real estate developers, housing schemes and high rise projects displayed their products to around 20,000 expat Pakistanis.
Zameen.com was launched by Zeeshan Khan in 2006, soon after his graduation from Imperial College London. Idea was to provide accurate information to potential buyers about houses, flats and plots. Since then, Zameen.com has grown into a huge company that now advises property developers and provides them with intelligent solutions for marketing and better management of their projects. The idea created by Zameen.com has branched out across 8-9 countries through a parent company based in Dubai. Bayat is a sister concern that is being run by Haider Ali Khan from Dubai. It is thus a quintessential Pakistani multi-national that serves across 9 countries and employs thousands of professionals.
