The massive RM39.8 billion Battersea Power Station redevelopment project in London will be showcased at the Malaysia Property Exposition 2012 (MAPEX). The public can head over to the expo from 19 October to 21 October 2012 at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Kuala Lumpur to learn more about the investing opportunities of this joint project by SP Setia and Sime Darby Property.

Organized by the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (REHDA), MAPEX 2012 will also be offering a wide range of properties from all over Malaysia by more than 70 local property developers and one foreign property developer.

On top of that, it has also received great support from financial institutions where 12 financial institutions, including CIMB Bank, Maybank, Bank Islam, Citibank, Standard Chartered, RHB Bank, Bank Simpanan will be offering attractive financial packages to potential house buyers.
Themed “Home and Abroad”, this final series of the Klang Valley MAPEX for 2012 will be launched on 10 October by YB Dato’ Seri Chor Chee Heung, the Honorable Minister of Housing and Local Government.

“With only 10 days to go, we have filled up almost all of our 227 booths. Response has been overwhelming from both listed and small property companies,” says Datuk Ng Seing Liong, MAPEX 2012 Organizing Chairman and Past President of REHDA.

MAPEX is an ideal platform gathering property developers, financiers, legal experts and also property consultants all under one roof to assist the home buying public in making an informed decision in their property investment. This three day free admission expo will also feature free talks to the public by experts in property investment to enable potential and existing house owners to enhance their knowledge on property related matters and to further gain invaluable information and hot tips regarding property investment. (See below for list of talks)

“Visitors to MAPEX do not necessarily need to buy properties on that day. It is also an educational expo where people can just look around and learn more about property, locations, new concept and so on. They must know, property is a long term investment and they should not rush into it,” says Datuk Ng.

That said, REHDA is targeting sales of RM500 million and more than 50,000 visitors during this three-day event.
