Set for 7-9 October in Munich, this year’s ExpoReal is posting new records for numbers of visitors and exhibitor from Central Eastern Europe.
Polish cities attending or exhibiting include: Warsaw, Krakow, Katowice, Lodz, Poznan, Gdansk, Bydgoszcz, and Torun, as well as Special Economic Zones and Voivodships.
Whether as exhibitors or visitors—the number of EXPO REAL’s participants from the international property industry is once again high. A main focus of the fair is the subject of innovation, which is centered on the newly opened Hall NOVA3. The overall conference program again reflects current trends and challenges—from Brexit to interest rate policy to the necessity of affordable housing.
“We are once again seeing a slight increase in exhibitors with 2,127 currently registered and we will thus attain a new record participation. The number of pre-registrations by visitors is also shaping up well”, says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO of Messe München. The EXPO REAL barometer of opinion, a survey of 1,880 property professionals, paints a picture that’s consistent with this: “79 percent of respondents expect a rather good result for their companies in 2019, 14 percent even anticipate a record year.”
Exhibitors are asking about more space—and there are many companies presenting at EXPO REAL for the first time including Aldi Süd, Exporo, Knotel, Medici Living Digital Services, Orascom Development, Orpea, Terragon and WeWork. Here for the first time too are the cities of Porto and Copenhagen as well as the Malta Property Foundation. Numerous country stands round off the picture. Represented again are Luxembourg, Holland Metropol, Holland Property Plaza, Club France, UK & Partner, Suisse Circle, Austria, Europa’s Mitte and the North American Meeting Point. Likewise established here but with a big increase in space once more are the joint stands from Bulgaria and Romania.
