Apartments in the heart of Cairo, coastal homes on Egypt’s shores, and suburban community complexes are just some of the residential projects featured at this year’s Cityscape Egypt exhibition, which kicked off on Wednesday at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre (EIEC) and concluded on 31 March.
The exhibition hosted more than 70 exhibitors that provided their best and most attractive payment offers to lure visitors to buy property from them.
In past years, the exhibition witnessed very high demand by customers to learn about Egypt’s latest projects and it became a haven for them to purchase their units through exclusive offers and deals, which in return made it more appealing for anyone considering investing in property.
Daily News Egypt took a tour of the exhibition, visiting almost all the exhibitors’ booths to learn more about their distinguished offers they had for visitors.
