DUBAI, UAE (October 10, 2008) - This week played a historic role in the timeline of the Global Credit Crisis, as the "Best of" the real estate and finance industries convened in Dubai, UAE, for the acclaimed Cityscape event. Today, Charles Byron Andrews, International Real Estate Analyst and Founder of Blue Coast, gave the Keynote presentation on "Investments in Volatile Markets" and was also featured as the expert guest on CNBC Arabia's Live "Markets Now" program, which aired at 1.00p local time.

"This is one of the most historic economic periods affecting our industry, setting the stage for a robust capital market and explosive investment arenas for sophisticated investors amidst a financial downswing, which experts haven't seen in decades" says Mr. Andrews. "Investors looking into the Dubai market will learn that the people in power, specifically Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum truly have laid a platform for solid, stabilized growth, proving that he is one of the most intelligent men interacting in this market, as far as government is concerned."

After speaking just 2 weeks ago on a New York City stage alongside Donald Trump Jr., Charles Andrews traveled back to Dubai to serve as a keynote speaker and moderator during the 4-day Cityscape event, focused on Dubai's current market conditions and the various aspects of the global financial crisis. Mr. Andrews' presentation was attended by some of the top business minds in the world, including George Ross, Executive Vice President and Senior Counsel of the Trump Organization and Adel Al Shirawi, CEO of real estate-driven stock powerhouse, Tamweel.

This event came on the heels of a very tumultuous week in the US stock and financial markets, having seen the DOW drop below 9,700 points for the first time since the Great Depression. Mr. Andrews was asked to share his views on CNBC Arabia and later today he appeared on the network's program, "Markets Now" live today as he discussed the UK credit crisis or "ripple effect" and which factors makes these markets different than others. Andrews discussed interesting growth indicators such as incentives to purchase property in Dubai which provide the buyers with resident visas.

Andrews added, "It's a pleasure to be back here in Dubai, doing business and meeting the top people in the industry, and I am looking forward to Blue Coast's expansion in the Middle East."
