These are without a doubt exciting times for the CEE property industry and for many markets 2017 is likely to go down in history as the strongest year on record. In spite of growing global uncertainty, CEE property markets continue to perform well with most countries attracting a larger and more diverse group of investors than ever. Will the current upward trend continue into 2018? Will investors continue to warm up to previously overlooked markets? Where will new money come from to the region? Top international investors will answer all of these questions and many more in Vienna on 19th September 2017.
Property Forum events – real estate focused conferences, business breakfasts and workshops – are organised all over Europe: in Belgrade, Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, London, Prague and Vienna. Property Forum events are characterised by high-level networking opportunities and unique professional content thus attracting over 2000 people annually and making Property Forum one of the leading event hubs of the CEE real estate industry.
Property Forum’s core values are the inspired format, the quality of content and the commitment to seek out the most interesting and most inspiring speakers in the industry and let them share their knowledge and passion.
