Space goes fast for upcoming expo

EXHIBITORS have already snapped up two-thirds of available exhibition space at Cambodia's first real estate expo next month, says the head of the event management company.

Whale Event Management chairman Ly Sok expects the remaining booths for the November 21-23 expo at the Cambodiana Hotel to be sold by the middle of this month.

Exhibition space for the three-day event ranges from US$20,000 for a diamond booth down to $2,500 for one of 15 standard booths.

The event will showcase real estate companies, developers, construction companies, banks, insurance companies and interior designers. UN representatives will also attend to advance discussion about sustainable urban development.

"The expo is a one-stop service featuring everything to do with real estate," Ly Sok said.

Confirmed exhibitors include the Gold Tower 42 and the Grand Phnom Penh International City development projects, banks such as ANZ Royal and Cambodia Public Bank, Alpha Property Construction and Décor Gallery.

"Cambodia is a frontier market, a land of opportunity," said Ly Sok. "The time now is right."

Whale Event Management, a member of Whale Group, was formed this year and plans to hold at least six expos annually focused on real estate, trade, technology and education.
