Thailand is about to get its first major overseas property exhibition when the “Thai & Overseas Property & Lifestyle 2012” event takes place from November 9 to 11 2012 at the Bangkok Convention Centre.
The new three-day exhibition has already booked in developer exhibitors from Thailand and international agencies from France, England, Spain and Turkey.
Organised by Blue Mango Publishing Company in association with Thailand Tatler, the event is being sponsored by Property Report, Asia’s leading magazine for luxury real estate and has been set up by Mike Bridge, who has worked on the Homebuyer Shows in England and the Worldwide Property Shows in the Middle East.
Nigel Oakins, chairman of Blue Mango, told OPP this week that “we are very excited to be involved in this new event, and will use Thailand Tatler magazine and our popular social media networks, to promote the exhibition and its exhibitors to our large number of affluent readers.”
Terry Blackburn, CEO at Ensign Media, thinks that the event is well timed because his firm has “seen huge growth and diversity in the Thailand real estate market since we launched eight years ago.”
“The Thai economy is in a strong position,” say the organisers, “and Bangkok itself has numerous 5 star developments being launched onto the market in and around November. We therefore feel that the timing is right.”
The exhibition will occupy approximately 3,000m2 of exhibition space and break out suites at the Centara Grand at the Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld. The venue hosts a number of top consumer and trade exhibitions conferences and concerts and has over 3,500 car park spaces and is served by the cities popular SkyTrain.
