Welcoming the world ... to Munich - Day 2 of EXPO REAL

EXPO-Blog by Marco Pfohl

"The train is full - please take the next one!" With these friendly words, visitors to the trade fair were prevented from boarding the underground train on the equally crowded platform at Trudering station. 

It was 8am on the second day of EXPO REAL and, although the fair would not be opening its doors until an hour later, the trains were already so full that the doors could hardly close.

German, English, Spanish, Turkish - the only four languages that were audible during the two-stop journey on the underground. EXPO REAL is the largest property trade fair in the world and you get the feeling that the whole world is indeed visiting Munich. While exhibitors from 41 countries have come here to present their products and services, visitors will have come from many other countries.

Today our stand was as international as ever. We welcomed Asian investors who were here to meet our specialist for commercial real estate finance in Europe, while next to them stood a Spanish journalist writing for a London magazine. Our Nordics team talked about a deal in Stockholm while our experts for the Polish market discussed joint year-end goals with long-standing clients. The day concluded with a visit to a panel on the impact of Brexit with the head of our UK office. It was aptly named "Five o' clock tea." Perhaps Brexit negotiations could do with some of that civilised teatime spirit!
