Exhibitor Statements EXPO REAL 2019

Read what exhibitors and participants to EXPO REAL 2019 have to say. The feedback of international real estate professionals reflects the importance of EXPO REAL in the real estate sector.

Anamaria Inden, Press Spokesperson, ALDI SÜD Dienstleistungs-GmbH & Co. oHG:
“Coming back to EXPO REAL after eleven years was the right decision for our company. This show is the ideal platform for us to showcase our flexibility and innovations capability. Engaging with our partners at this event and getting to know new contacts face to face were the main focuses for us.”

Mario Maxeiner, Managing Director Northern Europe, IHG:
“EXPO REAL is one of the most important sector events for IHG in Europe. New trends are highlighted here and it´s an opportunity to conduct important talks with other representatives from the hotel and property sector. EXPO REAL is also one of the few events at which you can still do business at the show. In the last few days we signed six contracts to develop over 50 hotels in northern Europe—and of course we are delighted about this.”

Steffen Szeidl, Member of the Executive Board, Drees & Sommer AG
“With the new hall NOVA3, Messe München is offering an ideal eco-system that brings together new ideas and competences. Particularly exciting for us are the start-ups with their out-of-the-box ideas that sometimes test the limits of the possible. As an established player in the market we have the sector expertise, the contacts and the applications to bring such ideas to market. With our environmentally-friendly booth, inspired by cradle-to-cradle thinking, we, too, want to be a driver of more sustainability in the real estate sector.”

Matthias Leube, CEO, Colliers International Deutschland
“EXPO REAL, taking place towards the end of the year, is always the most important test of mood in our sector. And even though the global economy is weakening slightly, we see a continuation of the very positive development on the global real estate market.”

Tony Smedley, Managing Director, Head of Private Equity—Europe, Heitman
“Heitman places significant value in being present at EXPO REAL to connect with clients, partners and peers in a professional environment. The 2019 conference was an overwhelming success in that respect, with the ability to host meetings, functions and gatherings on our exhibition stand in addition to building brand awareness as the key outcomes. We look forward to participating again in 2020.”
