With record figures for EXPO REAL 2017, according to Messe München more than 41.500 participants visited this years’ Expo Real, Holland Property Plaza started her first anniversary. We welcomed an overwhelming number of visitors at the HPP stand during Expo Real for a meeting with one of the HPP’s exhibiting partners or just for a snack & drink. Dedicated hospitality, providing an open marketplace for our visitors, network and partners is our main goal. In an optimistic ambiance Holland Property Plaza, together with over 50 HPP partners, participated this year successfully for the 10th time at Expo Real. Although still 11 months to go to the next Expo Real our preparations for the 2018 edition started already.
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 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. 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.
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.
