On Tuesday, 11 March, more than 100 leading real estate experts came together for an evening of networking and to discuss contemporary issues affecting Lebanon’s property industry. The event, held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beirut, was hosted by propertyfinder.com.lb, Lebanon’s leading property portal.
