Developers with Dubai property for sale may be pleased to learn that a new conference may help them with their decor.

The International Federation of Interior Architects and Designers has announced it will hold its World Interior Design Congress on the emirate this year.

Over 800 experts in the field will come to Dubai from across the globe to discuss the industry with the theme Celebrate Interior Design.

Ken Laidler, president of the Association of Professional Interior Designers, commented on the importance of the sector, which may be particularly pertinent to those with commercial property in Dubai.

He said: "All commercial developments, whether for domestic occupation, corporate premises, hospitality or indeed even health related, understand the true benefits interior design can offer. "

A highlight of the event will be two competitions, as well as the presence of some of the industries biggest names, including Piero Lissoni and Sebastian Conran.

Mr Laidler recently told Emirates Business 24/7 that prospects are good for the United Arab Emirates' hotel sector.
