Attracting a high volume of serious investors, we found that the exhibition proved to uphold the same excellent standards as previous Cityscape exhibitions, qualifying the high regard with which we hold such expos.
Despite being Cityscape’s newest addition, the prestige attached to the event was clear from the off, with the expo receiving a royal opening from The Sheikh Ahmed bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, the Minister of Economy and Commerce.
Such an opening placed pressure on the expo to follow in a similar vein; something which it more than lived up to with a high number of quality investors visiting the Knight Knox International stand.
Located in a prime position, our stand proved particularly popular due to it being one of the only stands offering UK buy-to-let and student investment opportunities, which were of much interest to visitors.
Exhibiting buy-to-let opportunities, including The Courtyard at X1 The Quarter, Liverpool, and The Queen’s Brewery, Manchester, along with student opportunity, X1 The Edge, Liverpool, the team found that investors were extremely interested in these developments due to the high yields on offer in regional locations.
The high number of sales from the event is testimony to the purchasing power currently felt throughout Qatar. This is evidenced by the amount of FDI currently flowing out of the country, which recently reached $50 billion; around $15 billion of which was invested in real estate reflecting the appetite among investors for property acquisitions.
Whilst at the show, the team were interviewed by Cityscape who were keen to discuss the popularity of overseas investments and how well they were being received at the show. Interviews such as this, compounded with our attendance at additional shows in the Middle East, allow us to further grow our brand within the region.
Additionally, we also held positive meetings with a number of sub-agents, which will help us in our objective to further extend our agents network in order to help sell a diverse range of properties and further grow our brand recognition worldwide.
