Investors, landlords and property enthusiasts will descend on London’s ExCel on October 7 and 8 for the annual Property Investor & Homebuyer Show, which is free to attend.
After a busy year in the buy-to-let sector, this year’s event is a must-visit for those with an interest in the rental and lettings industry.
Visitors will be able to attend seminars and stands covering all the biggest industry issues from the stamp duty surcharge and buy-to-let tax changes, to Brexit and its impact on the Private Rented Sector.
Buy-to-Let Tax Changes
Those interested in the latest developments of the campaign against incoming changes to the way landlords can claim buy-to-let mortgage interest tax relief can visit Axe the Tenant Tax at stand 368.
The non-for-profit, volunteer-led campaign will be holding ‘Tenant Tax’ debates on both days of the event.
Brexit and the EU referendum
Over three months on from the historic vote in June, we still await the triggering of Article 50 which will start the UK’s formal exit from the European Union.
But what effect has all this had on our industry? The Property Investor & Homebuyer Show’s international partner Guides.Global will be holding a Brexit debate on both days at the Excel.
What’s more, visitors can absorb a range of views on the referendum and its impact at the exhibition stands and in the seminar theatres dotted around the event.
Those looking at property beyond the UK can meet a broad selection of companies at the event weekend – exhibitors presenting investment options from a list of countries that includes the USA, Spain, Cyprus, France, Nigeria, Hungary, Romania, Germany and Ireland.
A quick look at the event website confirms that the exhibitor ranks will also include a broad mix of investment types – with a particular spotlight being thrown on both high-yielding HMO Property and the burgeoning PropTech sector.
Other exhibitors in the hall include specialist lenders, furnishings firms, insurers, auction houses, tax specialists, lawyers, tenancy deposit schemes, landlord/tenant services and crowd funders – a mix indicative of a diverse and healthy sector.
A diary fixture since the late 80’s, this is the benchmark event for the residential sector – and the largest networking hub that the industry has to offer.
