Date of Event: Friday 19th to Sunday 21 July 2013
No. of times KKI Exhibited: First timeThis first venture into the outback was made as a result of a surge in interest from Australian investors in the UK property market.
Financial experts have predicted that the Australian dollar will continue to depreciate against major currencies, including sterling, in the next 4-6 months, leading Australian investors to look to the UK for a source of secure investment.
Promoting buy-to-let investment opportunities, Merebank Court and X1 Salford Quays Phase II, along with purpose-built student accommodation, Greenbank Court, our Exhibitions Team received a high level of serious enquiries at the three-day show.
Investors at the exhibition saw the UK property market as the best investment vehicle in which to secure their funds, as many desire to invest in sterling in the face of the depreciating Australian dollar. Investors were also attracted to the market because they do not have to pay any capital gains tax and can be sure of a rising income from rental gains.
The international exhibitions team received over 89 enquires over the three days and also conversed with agents who could allow us to expand our Agents Network into the outback.
The team will now be taking part in their second exhibition in Australia at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, later this month.
