Slovakia for the first time at the EXPO REAL

Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) successfully held the first Slovak stand at the International Trade Fair for Property and Investment - EXPO REAL 2022 in Munich. Main incentive was the fact that almost all European countries, including our neighbours, attend this fair on regular basis ever since its beginning.

The main focus of our representation was to present Slovakia as an attractive investment destination, which has a lot to offer as well as to promote expansion of the activities of Slovak companies onto foreign markets. There were 10 exhibitors including:

Prešov self-governing region,
Penta Real Estate,
Priemyselný park Štúrovo,
Dynamik Holding,
Besico Holding,
Holland and Company,
Pro Finance,
R.E.M.D. and
the City of Prešov.

Our agency used the opportunity to introduce the state industrial parks and SARIO services to potential investors, developers, consulting companies and financial groups from different countries. The attendance of the stand was positively influenced by its location among big players such as the city of Barcelona, ​​Madrid, the Czech regions and the EXPO REAL forum covering many interesting topics.

Thanks to sponsorship of the ELESKO Winery from Modra, SARIO organized small but beneficial event with a glass of wine attracting even more visitors of the stand. Catering was also supported by Slovak products from Urpiner, Karloff, Spirit Coffee, Novofruct and Heineken which emphasized the Slovak identity of the stand.

The participation brought an opportunity for Slovak cities, regions and companies to present their offer to the best players on the European market and to establish foreign contacts. A rich conference program enabled exhibitors and visitors to get an overview of the latest trends in real estate business and a comprehensive view of their direction presented by leading world experts in this field.

In total, the fair was attended by 1,887 exhibitors and almost 40,000 visitors from 73 countries. This high participation and positive feedback are the key motivation to organize the Slovak national stand in the next 25th year of EXPO REAL 2023.
