Architects including 3D Reid, Assael, KPF and Sheppard Robson to display at conference

The RIBA is to promote the work of 15 practices at the largest property and construction fair in the Middle East.

The RIBA will be exhibiting at Cityscape Dubai, which runs 6-9 October, and 15 practices have paid £1,000 each to appear on its stand.

They are 3DReid, Assael, BPTW, Child Graddon Lewis, Dexter Moren, EPR, kingconroy, Kohn Pedersen Fox, Leach Rhodes Walker Penoyre and Prasad, Powell Dobson, Ray Hole, Sheppard Robson, Sidell Gibson, and Swanke Hayden Connell.

Richard Hastilow, chief executive of the RIBA, said: “Cityscape Dubai is a good opportunity to promote the talent of British architects to a wide range of new clients and markets overseas.

"As the number of RIBA practices seeking international commissions increases, the RIBA is keen to support them and to foster longer term partnerships with clients and local architects. There will be new opportunities through the development of RIBA International Chapters, such as the one planned for the Gulf.”

Each of the 15 architects will be appearing on the RIBA stand during the conference.
