Experience Invest has enjoyed a busy and successful year in 2018. The property investment company has appeared at some of the world’s most prestigious property exhibitions, where we have showcased UK investment opportunities to international buyers and industry professionals.
Here are some of the most memorable highlights and headlines of the past year…
Cityscape Global, Dubai
Cityscape Global in Dubai is one of the standout events on the international property calendar. This year, it took place at the Middle Eastern city’s World Trade Centre from October 2nd to 4th, with Experience Invest exhibiting at stand 4F30.
This gave the property investment company the opportunity to showcase exciting developments such as the second-phase launch of Infinity Waters, a triple-tower residential development in Liverpool featuring a range of luxury one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
We also provided updates on two ongoing projects that will appeal to investors interested in the UK’s lucrative student accommodation market: Aura Student Liverpool and Opto Student Newcastle.
Those targeting the London commuter belt had the opportunity to see a 3D model of Imperial Square, an off-plan development in Luton that will help to meet local housing demand with a selection of one and two-bedroom apartments. Cityscape Global attendees had exclusive access to some of the most desirable units available at Imperial Square.
Among those representing Experience Invest at the event was our business development and acquisitions director Jerald Solis, who said: “We believe that our unique investments, and the economic climate in the UK, provide international investors with the perfect environment to invest in real estate.”
Smart Expo, Hong Kong
Alongside the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong is another key international market for investment in UK property.
Experience Invest was once again on hand to showcase opportunities to the global market at the Smart Investment and International Property Expo, which came to Hong Kong’s Convention and Exhibition Centre on November 24th and 25th.
The exhibition featured a packed line-up of events and seminars, including presentations by property and investment experts who discussed the latest trends and developments in the industry.
Attendees also had the chance to meet and get advice from experienced property professionals.
Much like in Dubai, Experience Invest gave prospective investors the chance to secure some exclusive benefits in Hong Kong, including a 20 per cent early investor discount for Imperial Square, and four per cent interest and a free furniture pack for Opto Student Newcastle.
Experts from our London and Hong Kong offices manned the stand at the Convention and Exhibition Centre to answer visitors’ questions and provide personalised advice.
Supporting agents around the world
Whatever economic and political challenges might be present in the UK at the moment, the country still holds strong appeal for international real estate investors. One of the key reasons for this is that the property market has proven its resilience against all sorts of challenges, from the 2008 financial crisis to the more recent uncertainty caused by Brexit.
Experience Invest has responded to the consistent interest in UK property from international investors by actively supporting our agents in regions such as the Middle East and Asia, joining them at local events to meet prospective clients and make contacts.
Cityscape Global in Dubai provided the ideal opportunity for the business to expand our agent network in the UAE and the wider region.
Elsewhere, Experience Invest was hugely excited to open a new office in the Wan Chai area of Hong Kong, boosting our ability to engage with and meet the needs of our clients in Asia.
Jan Lukaszczyk, our Senior Property Consultant in the region, said: “Given the large number of clients we have in Asia, opening an office here is a natural decision for our future growth and to help us support the needs of our international investors.”
This wasn’t the only international office the property investment company set up in 2018, with another site opened in Canada to extend our reach in the North American market.
Developments closer to home
As well as boosting our international profile, Experience Invest has been working hard to maintain a strong presence and build relationships in the UK this year.
In November, we hosted our first London Property Seminar at the Principal Hotel in Russell Square. The event explored the advantages of investing in London’s commuter belt, focusing on Luton and Imperial Square, which was represented in a 3D model. Attendees had the opportunity to secure a 20 per cent early investor discount at Imperial Square, as well as other benefits.
Experience Invest also had the opportunity to sponsor the Luton’s Best Awards, which took place on November 23rd and recognised individuals and organisations who have made big contributions to the local economy and community.
Yet another highlight for us in November was the National Landlord Investment Show at London’s Olympia Exhibition Centre, where Jerald Solis joined a panel of property experts to debate the topic of ‘build-to-rent vs buy-to-let’. Watch debate…
In the north of England, we have had a regional consultant working in Liverpool throughout the year, to present our existing and forthcoming projects in the region to potential investors.
All in all, it’s been a busy and exciting year for property investment company, Experience Invest. We have taken every chance to showcase the wide range of prospects available in the UK property market to domestic and international investors.
As we look ahead to 2019, there’s little doubt the coming year will provide plenty more highlights and not-to-be-missed opportunities in the property investment market.
