Commercial property show returns


The Homebuyer and Property Investor Show is returning to Excel in the London Docklands.

The show has run for 17 years, offering advice and insights to the commercial property market in London.

It is expected to attract 14,000 visitors and is described by its organisers as "the property event for serious buyers".

This year’s event will feature property and related services from 250 exhibitors including developers, brokers, property investment training companies and other leading experts.

Despite the popularity of London commercial property, Jones Lang Lasalle has predicted investment in European property will fall in 2008.

The company’s European Capital Markets Bulletin has suggested the market could fall by 25 per cent.

Nigel Roberts, chairman of European research said the drop "can be seen as a bottom turning point in the market".

"By the second half of 2008 if occupational markets do not disappoint we look forward to improving confidence and a return to an activity traded market at prices more in line with long term trends," Property Week reported him as saying.
