Cityscape 2008 – over 81,000 people attend – now that is busy!

Phew! That is about all I can say really. We exhibited at Cityscape Dubai for the 3rd year running and it was as busy as ever – well far more busy really. Over 81,000 people attended according to the organisers, and I must say I can’t disagree. The crowds were quite extraordinary.

It was a big and outrageous as ever, with amazing stands from the large GCC developers. Nakhel stand was a stand out as it normally is. I heard mentiion that it cost 8 million dirhams and I can believe that. The scale of the models and integrated audio visual is by far the bext I have seen.

It was great to catch up with so many of our customers and to have the chance to overview much of the new functionality we have been building into foxEnterprise over the past 6 months.

Just two of the most exciting for our GCC customers was the full unicode support that is being released shortly (enabling Arabic to be used within the software – not to mention other languages in the region) and of course our automated payment plan reminders – including automated emails.

I also have to welcome a new staff member for our Dubai office, Jasmine Malhotra. Welcome aboard. We are all looking forward to working with you and to continue making a difference for our clients.
