Although this year’s Expo Real is expected to be a considerably smaller event than previous editions, that has not dissuaded PropertyEU from sending a team to Munich.
Reporters Jane Roberts, Elena Dragulele (pictured) and Lucas Ligtenberg have made the trip for the three-day event, which kicks off today.
The trio will be supplying reports to be published in special PropertyEU Expo Real Daily Digests this week.
Their attendance comes against mixed feedback ahead of Expo Real, as anecdotally some firms report they have taken last-minute decisions not to attend. Some say this is because they failed to make enough meetings with groups they were interested in.
That said, plenty of big-name firms are in attendance, with an emphasis on German companies.
The number of exhibitors is down nearly half, by 45%, from 2,190 at the last Expo Real in 2019 to 1,200 registered this time.
Visitor numbers were still developing strongly as late as last week, ‘but it is clear that here, too, we will not match the record year of 2019 due to the pandemic’, according to event organiser, Claudia Boymanns.
