Innesco at EXPO REALDigital Editor
This week, team Innesco jetted off to München for EXPO REAL; a cornerstone in our annual events calendar. As a very business-focused trade fair, EXPO has always proven to be a great forum for us to expand and enrich our network of global real estate contacts, launch new working relationships and help our clients to elevate the profile of their property projects on an international platform.
This year’s event was no different, and, in fact, proved to be the busiest and most dynamic in recent memory, with organisers quoting a record number of visitors. It was inspiring to see so much potential in the global real estate industry. The UK & Ireland Investor Pavilion in particular drew in the crowds, demonstrating current interest across retail opportunities and other flagship projects, despite the perceived uncertainty in the UK market.
In between conferences we caught up with companies including @THRealEstate14, Invesco, Nakheel, @e_locations and @Drees_Sommer, each of which are shaping the sector in their own way. The digital transformation of real estate was perhaps the most prevalent theme when it came to discussions over the future of the industry as developers, construction companies, investors and asset managers were all eager to emphasise their commitment to enhancing their buildings with digital strategies.
The best of digital transformation is yet to come – we’ll soon be off again, next time to Cannes for @MAPICWorld‘s main event, which will revolve around the exciting prospects of physical retail in the age of digital. Want to meet with us there? Get in touch, and keep an eye out for our stand in the UK Pavilion!
