The dates and the venue have been confirmed for the first of this year’s Property Investor Shows, the UK’s number one event for the most up to date information and news on all aspects of investing in residential property.
The spring show will take place on Friday 3rd April and Saturday 4th April and is once again at the Excel Exhibition Centre in the heart of London’s Docklands.
The event is always very well attended by both exhibitors and the property inquisitive public and this year is set to eclipse 2019’s success which saw close to 6000 property people attend over the two days.
The event has a proven track record in attracting the sector’s major names. The list of previous exhibitors includes the NLA; RBS; Octopus; Galliard Homes; Bellway; Berkeley Homes; IKEA; London Borough of Enfield; Direct Line; Habito; Post Office Mortgages; the Deposit Protection Service; Savills; JLL; PurpleBricks; Sobha Realty; Barnard Marcus; Hamilton Fraser, YOPA; SpotaHome, Northwood and Bradleys estate agents.
Well over half of the available stands have already been secured for this year by past attendees and debutants from across all aspects of property, property investment and related services, once again re-confirming the Property Investor Show as the number one event for anyone contemplating a property purchase – either as an individual as their first foray into buy-to-let, for example, as well as the established corporate investor keen to keep abreast of technology, funding innovation within the sector and the market itself.
For exhibitors, it’s the most captive audience all in one place to show off products and services that in any way relate to investing in property.
And especially this year as Nick Clark, Managing Director of the show, points out.
“Last year was our best ever attendance and that was despite a difficult and uncertain Brexit fuelled backdrop. But from the confirmations already received from exhibitors for this year, it’s certain to be an even busier two days with more companies in attendance and more visitors too.
Talk of a ‘Boris Bounce’ in the wider economy will certainly relate to a more buoyant property market in both transactional and value terms and this has fired the starting gun on what’s set to be a bumper year for those looking to capitalise on an investment in property. The majority of experts are forecasting value increases in 2020 and beyond now” says Nick.
This year’s show will also maintain the range of high profile speakers and seminars similar in number to the 80 that were so successful at last October’s event.
Ben Beagle, boss of the NRLA, the newly merged National Landlords Association (NLA) and Residential Landlords Association (RLA), will be a key-note speaker and will explain publicly for the first time the rationale behind the proposed merger, its previously reported delay, and the implications and benefits, as he sees it, for their 80,000 members. He’ll be taking questions too.
The list of confirmed speakers includes … Simon Zutshi, Richard Bowser, David Sandeman, Mike Bristow, John Howard, Tony Gimple, John Howell and Paul Mahoney. Kate Faulkner and Paul Shamplina also return as speakers and panel hosts.
The Property Investor Show has chosen PropergandaPR as its media and communications partner. Russell Quirk, James Lockett, and their team will be providing PR support and will be speaking and moderating on some panels.
Over the next few weeks, further speakers are due to be announced including some big industry names and, possibly, some political attendees too.
The debate program will include topical and contentious subjects such as:
- Deposit Protection: The New Alternatives
- Portals: What is the Future? Who Wins?
- State of the Market: Outlook
- Peer to Peer Property Investing: A Good Bet?
- Short Lets: Move Over, AST’s?
- Buy-To-Let Mortgages: Are They Evolving?
- The Politics of Housing: The Likely Changes To Policy and Regulation
All seminars and debates are interactive and audience participation and participation by way of Q&A is actively encouraged.
Expect to see an international focus too both in terms of international investors keen to take advantage of a weaker pound by buying here; and developments in countries including Spain, USA, Cyprus, Dubai, Turkey and Nigeria for those preferring opportunities overseas.
Admission to the show and its seminar & debate program is free but registration is required.
