Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Maher Al Shaer, the Chief Executive Officer of Diyar Al Muharraq, said: “It brings me immense pleasure to announce our sponsorship of Unbound Bahrain as we strongly believe that events such as these are vital to our progress towards a successful future for the Kingdom of Bahrain. With Property Technology (PropTech) being a rapidly growing concept due to the exponential increase in the use of technology in the real estate sector, in the duration of our sponsored panel discussion, we will be taking an immersive look into how this state-of-the-art technology is developed and deployed by the real estate sector to create smarter cities.”

The 2-day event serves as a platform for the finest minds in A.I., fintech, sustainability, energy, investment, blockchain, digital wellbeing and more, to make invaluable connections and discover inspirational insight and emerging technologies that will shape the future of the business community and therefore, the economy.
