DLR Group

“DLR Group’s Dubai and Nairobi, Kenya offices have never collaborated more as our projects, developers and funding sources crisscross the entire MENA Region.  Our planning, programming, master planning, architecture and interior design services are involved with hospitality, retail, sports, office, cultural and Performing Arts projects that demand performance driven design for the MENA Region’s sophisticated clients.  As a past presenter at this conference, I understand how important this event can be to both solidify those necessary relationships and make new connections.  I am looking forward to presenting again this year, seeing old friends and making new ones. This opportunity is important to me as a passionate advocate for design.  I am excited about the joining you for this event, share some of my thoughts and meet other leaders within the MENA region.”
