The Property Investor & Homebuyer Show, the UK’s most comprehensive property exhibition, takes place at London ExCeL this week – 28 & 29 April – and is free to attend. However, all visitors are required to register before entering the hall. To avoid the queues on visit day, you can register online now by clicking here.
It is fair to say that 2016 was a year full of surprises. Anyone who had the foresight to predict Britain voting to leave the European Union, Leicester City winning the Premier League title and Donald J. Trump being elected president of the United States of America could be in for a huge payout.
In January last year, bookmaker Paddy Power was offering odds on a Brexit/Leicester City/Trump treble at odds of 3,000,000/1, and so if you had put a £10 bet on back at the start of the year, you would now be £30m better off!
Other dominant themes over the past 12 months or so as far as property is concerned have included the introduction of the 3% stamp duty surcharge on second homes, including buy-to-let properties, as well as the phasing out of mortgage tax relief reductions for landlords. But what’s next for the UK property investment sector?
Those looking beyond the UK can meet a broad selection of companies at the event weekend - exhibitors presenting investment options from a list of countries that includes the USA, Spain, Cyprus, France, Nigeria, Hungary, Romania, Germany and Ireland.
A quick look at the event's website confirms that the exhibitor ranks include a broad mix of investment types – with a particular spotlight being thrown on both high-yielding HMO Property and the burgeoning property technology (PropTech) sector. Other exhibitors in the hall include specialist lenders, furnishings firms, insurers, auction houses, tax specialists, lawyers, tenancy deposit schemes, landlord/tenant services and crowd funders – a mix indicative of a diverse and healthy sector.
A diary fixture since the late 1980’s, this is the benchmark event for the residential sector – and the largest gathering / networking hub that the industry has to offer.
To those heading to London ExCeL do stop by at the Angels Media stand (number 462) and say hello to the Property Investor Today team. We’ll be delighted to see you.
The event and all seminars are free to enter, however all visitors are required to register before entering the hall.
