On the evening of the first day of the IREF Summit, the 16th of December 2014, we will once again be hosting the 2014 IREF ME Gala Dinner Awards Ceremony which celebrates outstanding achievement and excellence in both real estate and Islamic financing.

The Summit is once again well timed, as it comes against the backdrop of the successful debut British sovereign Sukuk issuance which, underpinned by real estate assets, was oversubscribed ten times. The Summit will provide an ideal platform for financial market experts and those interested in accessing the rapidly growing Islamic financial services industry to discuss the key issues, highlight and identify new opportunities and forge new business relationships. If you have any interest in Real Estate and innovative financing solutions, this is a Summit which you simply cannot afford to miss. Register today to avoid disappointment.
