Report from Expo Real 2012
Expo Real was a resounding success for NAI Global. From pre-arranged meetings with existing clients and prospects, to developing relationships with new contacts, it was always busy at the NAI Global stand.
EXPO REAL 2012 finished on a high note.
Participating were approximately 1,700 exhibitors. EXPO REAL 2012 also reported a rise in the number of participants in this 15th International Trade Fair for Commercial Property and Investment – to a total of 38,000, up by 1,000 on 2011.
EXPO REAL is all about meeting contacts; not just across Europe but globally too. It’s also a great place to spend quality time with our European colleagues.
The market in Germany and its neighboring countries in Central Europe proved to be a particular attraction. Visitors to NAI Global’s stand, from the host country and around the world, were particularly interested in its investment services capability alongside strategic property consultancy and brokerage services. Environmental sustainability was also a hot topic, with energy efficiency a key driver for occupiers, investors and developers alike.
