The Kanoo Group Sponsors Intellectual Property Crime Conference for the third time

Dubai, UAE: To reinforce the global efforts in fighting the crime wave of illicit trade, The Kanoo Group, for the third time, co-sponsored the latest edition of International Law Enforcement Intellectual Property Crime Conference held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Dubai, on 25 to 26 September 2018. 

The intellectual property (IP) event was co-hosted by INTERPOL and Dubai Police in partnership with the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC) and the Emirates IP Association (EIPA).


Mr. Fahad Kanoo, Acting CEO, The Kanoo Group-UAE & Oman said, “The annual conference provides us with a vital and unique platform that brings together law enforcement officials, security and industry experts to strengthen our international cooperation against IP crimes in the region and beyond.”

“We continue to do our part in supporting causes and actions that tackle these global threats and bring awareness among different sectors of our community,” he added.
While the Conference was originally intended specifically for law enforcement personnel, it has transformed into a great educational and networking tool for the public, as well as private sector organisations such as The Kanoo Group.

On behalf of The Kanoo Group, Mr. Ali Islim, Marketing Manager of The Kanoo Group (UAE & Oman), together with Management delegate attended the event and received the Appreciation Award from Major General Dr Abdel Qudous Abdelrazaq Al Obaidli, Assistant Commandant General for Excellence and Pioneering, Dubai Police.

The 12th International Law Enforcement IP Crime Conference addressed the key IP issues related to artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies, organised crime, money laundering, and free trade zones. It was aimed to shape effective enforcement strategies through a review of operational case studies, best practices and industry perspectives through a series of plenary and panel sessions as well as workshops allocated for one-on-one networking sessions.

With the global trade of fake goods, worth approximately half a trillion US dollars a year, IP crime touches all industry sectors, affecting the global economy and endangering public health.

According to INTERPOL, between March and May this year, it has coordinated regional operations across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America to shut down factories and supply chains connected to counterfeit goods, and to identify illicit trade routes, and dismantle organised crime networks.

Protecting IP embodies the Expo 2020 Dubai theme, “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”, in line with the UAE leaders’ vision for a sustainable economy.

As one of the pioneering conglomerates in the region established in 1890, The Kanoo Group understands the importance of IP protection and the enormous damages that illicit trade/counterfeiting and piracy do to our global economy, by which no industry sector is exempt.

The Kanoo Group launches new luxury compound villas in Jumeirah

Dubai, UAE: Following the successful launch of Al Safeena Villas, its first villa compound project, The Kanoo Group has again demonstrated a remarkable role in the forefront of Dubai’s ever-growing property needs at the city’s prime location by recently launching its second and third compound project, the new Haya and Alyazzi Villas in Jumeirah.
Designed by AD&D and constructed by Al Ghurair Contracting, the new rental villas offer open-plan layout, with 3 bedrooms from 4,036 sq. ft. to 4,112 sq. ft. and 4 bedrooms from 4,760 sq. ft. to 5,014 sq. ft., plus maid’s room, featuring modern and contemporary elements that give each home a sleek look, focused around luxury, modern family living.

The latest addition to The Kanoo Group’s property portfolio consists of 5 and 8 stand-alone villas in Compound 2 – Haya Villas, and Compound 3 – Alyazzi Villas respectively.

Situated just off Beach Road in Al Safeena, Haya & Alyazzi Villas is in close proximity to Dubai’s landmark areas such as 3 minutes to Sunset Mall, 6 minutes to Jumeirah Beach, 8 minutes to Dubai Canal, 12 minutes to Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa, and 18 minutes to Dubai Marina, but away from the hustle and bustle of the city which provides a peaceful environment for residents and visitors. 

Residents living in Haya & Alyazzi Villas will enjoy the benefits of their private landscaped gardens, but will also have the convenience of socializing in a close-knit neighbourhood. It seamlessly combines the concepts of privacy and community.

Girish Siddappa, Senior Property Manager, The Kanoo Group – UAE & Oman, said, “Kanoo Property constantly monitors and analyses the rapidly evolving market dynamics. We have an expert team who handles diverse property solutions to meet all our consumer needs.”

He also expressed his thankfulness to the Kanoo family, Management and Property team for their extended support towards the completion and success of the project. 

Currently, there are 11 out of 13 villas which were already rented out within few months’ time since its official launching. 
Through the years, Dubai has experienced a thriving economy and steady population. Dubai’s population is recently estimated to be over 3 million, one-third of UAE’s 9.3 million, which currently places extra demand on the real estate sector.
