Expo Real 2012
From 8th to 10th October Munich Messe, the international conference venue, hosted the 15th Annual Expo Real International trade fair for commercial property Investment. WSM were represented by managing partner Gavin Stebbing and real estate tax partner Wendy Patterson, who used their time to catch up with clients and contacts, old and new, as well as having an opportunity to forge new alliances.
This year there were 1,700 exhibitors and 38,000 participants at the event, including all of WSM’s German real estate investment clients who own commercial property across the United Kingdom, including the iconic Lloyds building at 1 Lime Street, the Radisson hotels in Manchester and Stansted and many other beautifully designed trophy buildings across the city of London.
With a packed schedule it was not possible for Gavin and Wendy to find time to attend some of the interesting presentations being given by industry speakers but the clear message was that the property sector is no longer in the economic doldrums and many of the attendees were very upbeat about the industry’s prospects for the future.
