Networking in southern Germany – EXPO REAL was a resounding success
Europe’s largest B2B property trade fair presented itself in its best light and we went home with the FLOWFACT Award.
Taking time to reflect, gathering ideas and inspiration, catching up with old colleagues, sharing experiences and information, and a whole host of networking. As the largest B2B property trade fair of its kind in Europe, EXPO REAL attracts visitors from around the world and has justifiably been an established event on the calendars of many real estate agencies for years.
English, Polish and Italian were just three of the many languages literally reverberating in my ears at the start of last week. A loud babble of voices could be heard throughout the trade fair halls in Munich, which had been immaculately set up for the attendees of EXPO REAL. Everything was extremely stylish, refined and, as you would expect for Munich, Bavarian! The pretzels available on arrival not only lived up to tradition but were a considerate gesture and a delicious prelude to the day’s events.
Culinary delights were, however, not the only highlights waiting to be discovered. Many stands featured estate agents, banks, institutes and even entire towns and cities looking to promote themselves and their local area. The technical innovations in the real estate sector were of particular interest. Fantastic developments are currently being unveiled in the area of building control systems and have the potential to revolutionise the everyday lives of residents. As this new technology also comes to the fore in our day-to-day work, we took the opportunity to become better informed.
However, we could not linger at any one stand for too long, as due to the sheer number of exhibitors, there was a high risk of missing out on the rest of the trade fair stands. We, of course, did not want to let the diverse range of information pass us by and, as a result, were able to gain a multi-faceted insight into the various topics on show.
To sum up, in addition to coming away with excellent memories of an extremely well-attended trade fair with a portfolio of exhibitors that had been perfectly put together, my colleague Markus Kranig and I were delighted to be able to take the FLOWFACT Award home with us. By the way, this award also paid tribute to the design of our blog, which you are reading at this very moment.
EXPO REAL, we’ll be back!
