Real Vienna 2008 at Vienna trade fairs Messe Wien:
The fair booms!
CEE/SEE visits Vienna Real Vienna from May 27 to 29, 2008.
The platform for commercial and industry properties and for real estate investments in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe Regions and cities at centre of attention.
Macedonia participates for the first time.

Architecture awards bestowed for the first time at the Real Vienna
The third issue of the Real Vienna will take place from May 27 to 29, 2008 at Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center.
The Real Vienna is one of the leading trade fairs for commercial and industry properties and real estate investments in Central Europe and has established itself successfully with only two issues on the market.
Matthias Limbeck, manager at the organiser Reed Exhibitions Messe Wien, sees the pronounced focus on the CEE and SEE regions as the decisive factor for this success: “The industry fully understood and accepted the Real Vienna as an exemplary contact and presentation platform. It has become the basis for transnational projects, investments and funding in the focus countries of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe.”
The number of exhibitors participating again (also known to trade experts as the ‘retention rate’) is extraordinarily high at 90 per cent. New business group manager Michael Mandl sees this as “a clear evidence for a convincing concept”. The meaningful and, especially for the participants, useful combination of business, contact, know-how and networking that is not only living up to the requirements of this industry but also fulfils the communication custom are good reasons to remain faithful to the Real Vienna, explains Michael Mandl.
High-flying companies participate The list of exhibitors grows longer with each day. Amongst these listed exhibitors are many new companies that have taken up business in the CEE and SEE regions. They include for example: Besix (Belgium), Global Real Estate (Bulgaria), Aareal Bank (Germany), Ulimate Montenegro (UK), Oriental Real Estate (Kasakhstan), Kapital Konzalting (Croatia), Mirzon Investment (Netherlands), Rödl & Partner (Poland), Cagead Intermed (Romania), Opera Reform Alfa (Slovakia), LC Streetracing-Invest (Ukraine) or the Orco Property Group (Luxembourg). Renowned names of the industry, like Immofinanz AG, Immoeast AG, NAI Global, NAI Baltics, CB Richard Ellis GmbH (CB Richard Ellis Group), Colliers International (EMEA), Eurohypo AG or the TRIGRANIT Development Corporation, are also to be found amongst the app. 350 expected exhibitors.
Regions and countries of the focus region at the centre of attention The CEE and SEE regions and cities are especially interested in the Real Vienna, amongst them the city of Bratislava. Vienna and Bratislava are united not only by the waterway that is formed by the Danube but also by a direct link via motorway since the end of 2007. This was a major improvement in the infrastructure, also in the light of the fact that Bratislava, after Prague, is the second-richest region of the accession countries of the EU enlargement of 2004. The per capita gross domestic product is 129 per cent of the EU average. Already from the 1980s, numerous large-scale projects have been planned and in part have also been put into practice already. Currently, active building can be observed in Bratislava near the banks of the Danube, the region around the main train station, the former industrial zone next to the historic city centre and the city districts of Petržalka, Nové Mesto und Ružinov. The Moscow Investors Association and the cities of Belgrade, Bucharest and Zagreb are also amongst the definite starters at this year’s Real Vienna. The Czech Republic will intensify its presence at the event and will present a number of regions and cities, including the regions of South Bohemia, Hradec Kralove, Vysocina, Plzen (Pilsen), Karlovy Vary, the city of Most, the ‘Regional Authority of the Usti Region’ and the corporation of the city of Brno.
Other participants at the Real Vienna are the city of Usti nad Labem, the regional administration of the Olomouc region and the South Moravian region. “The Real Vienna is synonymous with internationality”, claims Günther Theuermann, fair manager in charge. “Last year, 52 nations were represented at the Real Vienna. For 2008, we assume similar international participation again.” With that high number of international participants, it also has to be stated though, that direct benefits of a participation in the Real Vienna is bidirectional, according to Theuermann. “International projects are presented to international investors but Austrian projects are also brought near to international investors. A productive exchange of knowledge, know-how and investments.”
First-time participant: Macedonia Macedonia was awarded the ‘Best European Economic Development Region 2008’ by the renowned Institute of Transport Management (UK) in November 2007. As reasons for this decision the jury mentioned not only the positive economic and political conditions, but mainly the ideal climate for commerce and investment, promoted by the government. A very positive starting situation for potential investors from the rest of Europe in other words. The projects from Macedonia can be examined live at the Real Vienna 2008.
Gyoder brings the Turkish real estate elite to Vienna Gyoder understands itself as an association of Turkish real estate investment enterprises. Gyoder exhibited already at the previous issue of the Real Vienna. This involvement will be further intensified this year, when Gyoder brings together a number of key players of the Turkish real estate industry at their common fair stand. Amongst the participating enterprises are, for example, ‘ISGYO’ or ‘Emlak Gyo’. For the new business group manager, Michael Mandl, the participation of the Turkish trade leaders is a very important symbol for the Turkish market.
A new highlight: “Central European Architectural Academic Awards” 2008 In the context of the Real Vienna, architecture students from Eastern Europe will be bestowed with the ‘Central European Architectural Academic Awards’. This international competition is directed at architecture students at universities in Central and Eastern Europe. The competition will be carried out for the first time in the context of the Real Vienna and under the guidance of INVI (Investment Vision and Environments). The competition offers both students and graduates from invited universities the unique opportunity to demonstrate new perspectives for the development of their cities. The aim of the submissions is to contribute to the sustainable development of the cities. In addition, the competition is thought to attract young talents from Central Europe and give them the chance to be taken notice of in a professional environment. Invited are students from countries like, for example, Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, the Ukraine as well as other Central and Eastern European countries.
Comprehensive technical and side programme One decisive characteristic of the Real Vienna is the technical and side programme that has been adapted perfectly to the main topic of the trade fair. As usual, the Austrian publisher GEWINN has participated greatly in the compilation and organisation of the side programme. In the context of the so called ‘Property Talks’ – three lecture stages in the very centre of the fair – panel discussions that last one hour each will take place under the participation of top industry experts from Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe who will engage in discussions which will deal with interesting and current topics of the national and international real estate industry. The exhibitors will have the opportunity to participate in the side programme.
The main themes for the three stages are:
‘Cities & Regions’,
‘Investment & Services’ and
‘Projects & Special Markets’.
Every visitor of the Real Vienna can participate in these events for free with their admission ticket. Günther Theuermann explains: “The side programme of the Real Vienna, ranging from the offered panel discussions to the networking events in Vienna’s best localities, complements the trade fair almost perfectly.” The details of the Real Vienna.
The Real Vienna will take place from Tuesday, 27 to Thursday, 29 May, 2008 in Vienna’s trade fair centre Messe Wien.
