Expo Real 2014
The start of October is a busy time for Munich. Hundreds of locals and tourists gather themselves in tents to down stein after stein of beer whilst partaking in the Oktoberfest festivities. On the 6th October in Messe, the other side of Munich, Expo Real, the International Trade Fair for Property and Investment was also soon to be underway.
This year the Trade Fair was visited by 36,900 visitors over the course of its 3 day stint and with over 1,655 exhibitors, the event provides a fantastic opportunity to catch up with friends and associates across the channel, peruse the exhibitions and develop new contacts.
This year amongst the visitors were Gavin Stebbing, Wendy Patterson and Ben Lee, representing the WSM property team, and as always, Munich did not disappoint. A busy couple of days were had catching up with contacts, from the likes of Knight Frank, KGAL, DTZ and Union Invest to name a few, and attendance at an evening reception hosted by RealIS was the perfect way to end the busy first exhibition day.
As to be expected from a German Trade Fair, the efficiency of the event ensured that there was never a dull moment and the time spent in Munich was over far too quickly. As a regular event in the WSM calendar, we look forward to the 2015 Trade Fair and what the next year holds for the real estate market.
