At Europe's largest trade fair for property and investment, retail properties make a strong appearance: at many booths at EXPO REAL you could meet retailers, project developers, investors and retail partners—ideal for cultivating your network and making valuable contacts.
Special highlight: the Grand Plaza. The innovative marketplace concept primarily addresses retailers willing to expand, chains, real estate developers, investors, shareholders, urban planners and municipal representatives. Prominently located in Hall C2, the approximately 600-m² Grand Plaza impressed by its resemblance to a modern market forum. Food service market stalls and a distinguished Speakers' Corner featuring a varied program top off the ambience.
Surrounded by exhibitors active in the retail business, the Grand Plaza offered the perfect environment for gathering information and exchanging ideas with decision-makers in the industry.
EXPO REAL hosted many renowned exhibitors from the retail and related sectors, including: Action Deutschland, dm drogerie-markt, Fressnapf, HBB Hanseatische Betreuungs- und Beteiligungsgesellschaft, Kaufland, Lidl, Lührmann, Penny-Markt, Ratisbona, REWE, Rossmann and toom Baumarkt. This broad attendance emphasizes the great significance of retail properties in all their facets.
The Grand Plaza conference program not only addressed current topics, but above all discussed strategies for the future—for example, future-proof cities and shopping centers and innovative concepts for retail properties in terms of ESG and sustainability.
