Name of Expo: iProperty Expo, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 16-18 August 2013
No. of times KKI have exhibited: 5 times
Hailed as the busiest expo our international exhibitions team has ever attended, after receiving over 100 enquiries over the three-day event, this iProperty exhibition is a more than worthy addition to a string of successful events we have recently attended throughout Malaysia.
Having attended three Malaysian property exhibitions within the last three months, both spreading the Knight Knox International brand as well as gaining expertise on the Malaysia property market, this exhibition perfectly exemplified the benefits of both; with our brand being instantly recognised by investors and our increased knowledge ensuring that the event was a success.
With Property Exhibitions in Malaysia mainly being occupied by local developers, we have found that these events furnish us with an excellent platform to promote credible alternatives to the Malaysian property market, which the local press has labelled ‘over-heated’ as re-sale properties, initially bought for capital growth, struggle to sell.
most of the enquiries we received were focussed on the UK property market
Although we exhibited Thailand products which proved popular and resulted in a sale, we found that most of the enquiries we received were focussed on the UK property market, with investors expressing interest in both the UK buy-to-let and student markets, as they seek to invest in UK sterling, due to a depreciating Malaysian Ringgit.
In addition to receiving a number of serious enquiries, the team also received enthusiastic sub-agent enquiries, which have now been passed on to our UK-based agents network, as we continue to develop our client and partner base in Malaysia.
The next event the Knight Knox International exhibitions team will be attending in Malaysia will be the iProperty Expo Penang from September the 13th through to the 15th, as we continue to increase our presence in this South-Eastern paradise.
