Nordic Sundowner

The Norwegian Business Council is proud to host the next Nordic Sundowner and we welcome you to enjoy an evening of networking while learning about Property Investment in the UAE and How to make your house a home.

First part – Property investment in the UAE
We are pleased to partner up with SBC´s corporate member and real estate agency in Dubai, Homeville who will inform us about the important insights of finding the right property to buy, what to look out for and where to best invest.
