2013 is another award-winning year for propertyfinder.ae, the UAE’s leading property portal, which was named Online Business of the Year at the 2013 Gulf Capital SMEinfo Awards.
Rewarding and celebrating industry excellence, the Gulf Capital SMEinfo Awards honour the outstanding contributions of the UAE's most successful small and medium enterprises (SME’s) and provide a huge platform to recognise their success. More than 400 attendees celebrated the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of the UAE’s SME’s and toasted the evening’s big winners, who were chosen from an impressive array of entries representing a broad range of industries.
Michael Lahyani, CEO and Founder at propertyfinder.ae said, “We are so excited to have been selected as the leading online business in the UAE against some very stiff competition. The digital revolution here and across the region is gathering pace and we want to be at the front of this wave.”
A recipient of the ‘Dubai SME 100’ awards which were also announced yesterday, propertyfinder.ae is a leader in the real estate digital space with visits to the website growing by 105% in the last 12 months. Over the course of this year, the company expanded its geographical footprint across the GCC by launching and acquiring property portals in Qatar, Egypt and Lebanon.
“It has been a whirlwind year for us with phenomenal month-over-month traffic growth and regional expansion. With numerous innovative initiatives lined up, 2014 should be another tremendous year,” said Renan Bourdeau, propertyfinder.ae’s Managing Director and Partner.
