This was already the 16th time that Engel & Völkers Commercial had a presence at the EXPO REAL in Munich. Some 39,000 participants from 77 countries came along to the 19th international specialist trade fair for real estate and investments. “The trade fair stand was always well frequented and the customers’ feedback was positive across the board,” says Dirk Beller, Regional Head for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic, summing up his assessment of the EXPO REAL.
Apart from Engel & Völkers Commercial, other offices were represented at the 132 sqm trade fair stand, namely Engel & Völkers Investment Consulting GmbH, Engel & Völkers Capital AG, Engel & Völkers Development GmbH as well as Engel & Völkers Project Sales. The CareerDay for students, graduates and young professionals arranged on the final day also turned out to be a huge success story for Engel & Völkers. “We managed to conduct many promising talks with potential job applications,” says Richard Jennewein, Regional Head of Commercial.
As was already the case in the two previous years, the evening event “Commercial Lounge” hosted by Engel & Völkers Commercial was held at the Film Casino on Odeon Square. Enjoying finger food, selected beverages and tantalising music presented by a Berlin DJane and a female saxophone player, the invited guests spent the last few hours relaxing on the first trade fair day. “The throng of visitors was enormously long. We received a total of about 1,000 guests at the Film Casino,” says Management Board Assistant Sonja Pflüster, who was responsible for organising the event. The next EXPO REAL will be held in Munich from Wednesday, 4 October, until Friday, 6 October 2017.
