Property summit in January

The inaugural Penang International Property Summit and an international property exposition will be held in January next year at the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SPICE) in Relau.

The summit themed ‘Managing Future Trends and Challenges’ will be held on Jan 9 and Jan 10, while the property exhibition will be on show from Jan 9 to Jan 11.

State Housing and Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said although there had been many property exhibitions in Penang, the summit would be the first to have a conference as well as a property exhibition.

“In line with our aspiration of becoming an international and intelligent city, the conference is aimed at creating better awareness of the many issues that are faced by the industry players and their views will be heard by the state government, in order to further promote the property market in Penang,” he told a press conference recently.

He said several prominent speakers would speak on topics such as the challenges of affordable housing, incentives for first-time home buyers and greener buildings.

“There will also be a CEO round-table dialogue chaired by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. The dialogue is by invitation and is limited to 30 captains of the industry.

Event director Ong Ban Seang said there would be about 70 companies and developers participating in the Penang Property Summit 2015. - By The Star
