The Star Property Fair 2009

The Star Property Fair in Penang is back again with bargains and deals for those seeking to get the home of their dreams or to furnish their existing property.

The three-day fair at G Hotel (Level 2) and Gurney Plaza’s new wing ground floor concourse area, which starts today, will showcase the latest property complemented by a lifestyle section.

The Star regional manager operations (north) Chung Chok Yin said visitors could expect more higher end property on display.

“We changed the venue of the fair this year from the Penang International Sports Arena with the aim to attract a different target audience.

“We are having more up market products at prime locations. Considering the pricing of property in Penang now, the deals showcased will be good bargains for potential buyers,” Chung said after visiting the exhibition venue yesterday.

He said the fair aimed to help developers reach out to the more affluent segment of the society.

“We are also targeting the expatriates who are looking for property here,” he added.

The fair will feature more than 70 exhibitors with about 150 booths. The exhibitors include property developers, lifestyle product companies and financial institutions.

Among the developers are Henry Butcher Malaysia (which is also the technical adviser for talks and forums), Ivory Properties Group, SP Setia, IJM Land Bhd, Belleview Group, Mah Sing Group, PJ Development Group and Ideal Properties.

For the lifestyle section, exhibitors include Syn Hoo Lim, Matrix Kitchen, Jia Yee, Pensonic, Solar Tech, Door Decor, B.L.Furnishing Sdn Bhd, Groupe SEB and Home Focus Sdn Bhd.

There will also be an auction for the painting ‘Nostalgic Phenomena’ by artist Koay Soo Kau.

The auction will take place throughout the fair and the reserved price is RM10,000. The proceed will go to the Penang Hospice.

There will also be 25 other paintings on sale from which 30% of the proceeds will be channelled to Penang Hospice.

Visitors to the fair stand a chance to win fabulous prizes from the Surf, Click & Win and Lucky Catch contests.

Organised by Star Publication in collaboration with Henry Butcher and supported by The Expat Group, the Star Property Fair 2009 is open from 10am to 10pm daily over the three days.
