Real Vienna 2009 Top-flight trade platform in difficult market situation (AT)

The moment for setting the starting signal for the Real Vienna 2009, taking place from 26 to 28 May 2009 in Vienna's Congress Centre Messe Wien, is approaching fast. The fourth edition of the trade fair for commercial and industrial properties and real estate investments is a successfully established trade fair platform which especially scores internationally with its clear concept - the focus on the CEE and SEE regions (Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe).


Real Vienna 2009 takes place in Vienna's Congress Centre Messe Wien.

After the international trade fair for trade and industry real estate recorded an enormous growth last year (65% more exhibitors, 78% more visitors) this year top-level consolidation is to be expected. This is because this year's fourth edition of the trade fair with a focus on the countries of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe (CEE/SEE) is confronted with an inconsistent impression of the real estate markets in the individual regions. "We do receive positive signals from Central, Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe in these moments before the Real Vienna," Matthias Limbeck, managing director of fair organizer Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien, explains. For instance a pleasant number of bookings from exhibitors from the Czech Republic, Croatia, Poland and Slovakia can be recorded. "In total we count more than 160 exhibitors – with this we are currently holding at approximately two thirds of the total number of expected total bookings we will receive until the fair starts", Matthias Limbeck states.

Bookings are expected to level figures from 2007
With the targeted 250 exhibitors this year the Real Vienna would level with its 2007 issue (248 exhibitors), despite the changed framework this year. "We do however face a rather difficult market situation due to the market clearance activities of the past months in Ukraine and Russia. But despite the fact that this year, due to the economic situation some major exhibitors from this economic area will not be present, the Moscow Investors´ Association and Ukraine's chamber of commerce will be present at the fair," states the new fair director of the Real Vienna at Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien, Thomas Jungreithmair. And key players from the Austrian market will be present as usual at the Real Vienna 2009.

Attractive side program and networking
This year, as always, a comprehensive side and technical program has been designed for the Real Vienna d – tailor-made for the target group of decision makers. In cooperation with the Austrian "Gewinn" publisher the "Property Talks" are held. Fair organizer Reed Exhibitions offers the participants of this top-flight panel discussions as a special service simultaneous interpretation in eleven languages. At the symposium "Sustainable Business Districts", which will be taking place on 28 May in the Event Lounge in Hall D, organized in cooperation with the City of Vienna, everything revolves around "New Trends & Opportunities for the Development of Economic Locations".
