Valdivia at the
Real Estate Finance Day 2023 — A Review
REFD 2023 in Frankfurt again was a truly important forum for the ndustry. Find out more in this article.
Expo Real in Munich as the largest industry meeting is every year again a highlight and a very good opportunity to pick up impulses and moods in the market as well as to give input, to be creative and to actively shape the future!
In the best weather with lots of sunshine, many discussions took place in the open air this year. A remarkable interest from overseas is to be noted from our point of view as well as generally a very well attended fair.
We already set the sails for the fair the day before the fair with our Board Room Lunch. This year we had the pleasure of kicking off the event in the Käfer Feinkost Wiesn marquee and welcomed guests from Germany, Great Britain, Austria, Ghana and Canada, who came together for a very relaxed, open and constructive exchange of ideas and to make new contacts. During the exhibition days, our team was in close personal contact with new as well as already known decision makers of the industry at nearly 100 customer appointments.
What are Valdivia’s insights from this year’s edition of the traditional event?
In a nutshell: Navigating to 2025
- Market phase remains turbulent- market participants realistic, on balance optimistic and characterised by great acceptance of market environment
— Market environment changes in smaller cycles
— Interest rate development, financing and valuation; competition for real estate investment products
— Focus on political framework and guidelines as well as current situation in crisis areas
— Economic stability as a goal and cornerstone for sustainable investment decisions;
— All market participants in the real estate segment are currently closely monitoring the impact and trends in the real estate industry with regard to artificial intelligence.
On our own behalf, here is our personal conclusion: We at Valdivia Consulting GmbH are extremely pleased about the positive feedback on our specialized services as executive search consultants and about the appreciation of our very personal approach.
At the same time, we would like to thank Messe München once again today for organizing this important and truly inspiring meeting of the real estate industry. We very much appreciate the opportunity to be part of this prestigious event and to have had the chance to participate in so many insightful discussions and to exchange ideas with our business partners, friends and new acquaintances on site.
We look forward to seeing you all again in 2024!
