Exhibitors report quality leads at the Homebuyer Show

A record number of visitors attended the Homebuyer Show at the weekend, resulting in exhibitors reporting a greatly increased number of quality leads.

Nearly 15,000 attended the show at London’s ExCeL Centre which had over 250 exhibitors specialising in all areas of property investment in the UK as well as a range of foreign markets from Latin America to the Far East.

There was also a seminar programme and a debate on the future of buy-to–let.

Claire Brown, principal of Claire Brown Realty, says: “The company had a great show, taking well over 100 qualified enquiries and, as last year, I am certain we will convert a good number of those leads into sales in the coming weeks.

“The quality of visitors was again exceptionally good with more professional investors and the serious end of the consumer market.

“Our most popular countries were Borneo and Cambodia so it goes to show that the crowd were even more adventurous than in past years.”

Nick Clark, managing director of the Homebuyer Show, says: “Yet again, the Homebuyer Show has had the most tremendous turn out, with more visitors flooding through the doors than the previous year.

“The overwhelming feeling from both visitors and exhibitors was that the property market still has much to offer investors and homebuyers and with a comprehensive seminar programme, a popular industry debate and the usual extensive range of exhibitors in all areas of property, the show was able to provide expert advice to everyone from first time buyers to seasoned investors.”

From March 23 to March 25 2007, the Property Investor Show will be at the Birmingham NEC.
