HPP theme for 2017 is ‘Urbanisation’ in all HPP meetings this year we especially paid attention to this broader subject.

HPP Calendar 2018
31 December 2018

HPP Calendar 2018

It gives us great pleasure to announce the HPP Annual Programme for 2018

The HPP theme for 2018 will be “Connecting Networks, Sharing Knowledge”.

2018 will also be the year in which Holland Property Plaza celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

Community members can again look forward to a series of Round Table meetings and networking events. Naturally we shall also participate in Expo Real in Munich, and we again invite participants and other business relations to take part in the HPBike tour and several other exciting events which we have planned for 2018.

 

We intend to pay a considerable amount of attention to ‘Sustainability’, which we believe will continue to be a hot topic in the years to come, and one which we aim to put into a much broader perspective than simply that of a building or the constructed environment surrounding it. Sustainability begins with a long-term (business) relationship and extends far beyond to include all aspects of living, residing and working.

 

During its 11th year in operation, HPP intends to focus on each of these aspects. A year, moreover, in which we plan to further expand and reinforce our network.

International Investor Dinner 2017
04 October 2017

International Investor Dinner 2017

2017 is already the sixth consecutive year in which HPP is organising its HPP Investor Dinner during the Expo Real in Munich, a year that has already seen many developments taking place on the world stage and that has brought considerable change to our sector, both on an European and a national scale. We have invited the Bavarian Minister for European Affairs and Development, Mrs Beate Merk to share her vision on current European developments from a German perspective. We have also asked Mr Born Niehuss, Global Head of Tenant Relationship Management at DEKA Immobiliën, to share with us the DEKA strategy and to give us his assessment of global developments on the real estate market in general, and on the European market in particular.

The HPP Investor Dinner, to be held in Palais Lenbach starting at 20.00 hours, will be followed by Midnight Cocktails, to which HPP participants can invite their business relations. In view of the limited number of seats available for the Investor Dinner, Midnight Cocktails will provide ample opportunity for all to meet in a charming and informal setting. Attendance, between 23.00 and 01.00 hours, is only possible at the invitation of HPP or PP participants. Some of those invited might not be able to attend the Investor Dinner due to obligations on the same evening, but they might want to join us for a drink or refreshment after a busy first day at the trade fair. If this is the case, we kindly ask them to let us know.

By organising Midnight Cocktails, the board of HPP aims to create another occasion during which business relations have the opportunity to expand their networks on the first day of Expo Real.

For more information about the HPP Investor Dinner and/or Midnight Cocktails please contact Amanda Castan via: amanda@hollandpropertyplaza.eu

HPBike 2017

HPBike 2017, from start to finish an inspiring and healthy event for all cyclist.

Starting and finishing in Apeldoorn, the 2017 Holland Property Bike Tour (HPBike), took the participants through the Veluwe region (National Park) and the former Zuiderzee. We crossed parts of the new created Province Flevoland, new born land mainly situated under sea level and finished day one in the city of Almere. With a great evening reception and dinner in a very surprising environment, City farm Boer Kok, hosted by the Province of Flevoland, the cities of Almere and Lelystad and LAB (Lelystad Airport Business park) we had a remarkable day.

HPP Pre-Provada Symposium
15 May 2017

HPP Pre-Provada Symposium

Each year, just before the Provada (Dutch Real Estate Trade Fair), HPP organises its annual real estate symposium in collaboration with the Dutch Real Estate Society (NVA).

This year’s theme for the symposium, Urbanisation, was as broad in scope as it was informative. A number of highly qualified experts from the respective sectors (see page 124) presented their visions to a captivated audience. The plenary session was preceded by a several ‘Pro Talks’ on specific topics and issues.

As the Pro Talks turned out to be a success last year, we decided to include them in this year’s program again. Many interesting topics within the theme Urbanisation were discussed (see page 125). Additionally, the location of the symposium, an iconic industrial monument and former machinery hall of the Werkspoor factory, turned out to be a wonderful and exceptional location for all participants and guests.

Attended by more than one hundred guests, and with a closing speech delivered by Lennert Middelkoop, the Director of City Development & Economy Utrecht, the symposium once again proved to be very successful, refreshing and valuable for those visiting the Provada in the weeks after.

The economic growth exceeded our expectations in the Netherlands this year. So did the number of new jobs that were created so far. Consumer confidence is constantly on a high level and interest rates are still pretty low. As a result there is an increasing demand for homes in the Netherlands. Not only in the larger fast growing areas, but also in more remote parts of our country. The number of homes sold continues to rise and is not limited to just the so-called overheated cities like Amsterdam and Utrecht. There is still a growing demand for new build projects and there are signs that the construction industry lacks the capability to cope with this situation. Capacity is not rising fast enough to meet the demand.

The number of vacancies in the rental sector are at an all-time low and prices are rising. There is a great demand for homes in the mid-priced rental sector. Both the central and local government are proposing policies to increase the number of new build homes in this field. There are of course discussions on affordability, especially in city centres in the west of the Netherlands.
