HPP Public

HPP Public

Holland Property Plaza (HPP) is an independent commercial European marketing network whose principal objective is to bring public and private parties from the Dutch real estate sector together and to directly or indirectly connect those parties with international real estate players, financers, investors, potential customers, developers and municipal and regional government bodies during the Expo Real trade fair in Munich and during events organised throughout the year.

Holland Property Plaza initiates a number of activities for the specific purpose of advancing cooperation between its European network business relations and the HPP Community. The focus of all HPP activities lies on establishing cross-border partnerships and creating business development opportunities for its members and participants.

HPP is more than a trade fair project for participating commercial and public parties. Ever since its incorporation in 2007, the HPP foundation has positioned itself as an active European marketing network whose aim it to turn the spotlight on participants and HPP Community members, both domestic and internationally.

Cities and regional development companies play an important role in the interaction between commercial developers and investors and the ultimate users of real estate, HPP fully acknowledges the significance of that position and aims to accommodate those public players within HPP, thereby promoting mutual (cross-border) cooperation and the exchange of knowledge. In the interest of trans-European cooperation and the exchange of knowledge, HPP Public welcomes both domestic and foreign municipalities and regional government as members.

The consistently high level of cooperation between Holland Property Plaza (HPP) and the HPP Communities, HPP-IREIN, HPP-REDA, HPP Public and SME/Private Members, the NVA (Dutch Real Estate Society) and HPBike guarantees an interesting network with a broad spectrum of relationships between numerous public and commercial parties in the European real estate sector.

To achieve its objectives, Holland Property Plaza each year organises a series of events for its participants and the HPP European network, if required in collaboration with third parties and/or the parties referred to above. The HPP year traditionally ends after the Expo Real trade fair in Munich, in which HPP actively participates.

Access to the HPP Community can be obtained through application or at the invitation of HPP. The board of HPP ultimately decides who is accepted/allowed access as a HPP Community member.

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.

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.

Jeroen Hateboer

Alderman for Culture and City Development Enschede



No regrets whatsoever! The reason why Enschede is an HPP Public Member…

The language and customs of the government can, I admit, sometimes be difficult to fathom for people in the business community. As a former entrepreneur turned alderman for the city of Enschede 7 years ago, I have found myself in many, sometimes very amusing, situations in which this was obviously the case. I therefore warmly support every initiative that aims to bring governments and the business community closer together.
