60 Hanseatic firms to attend Expo Real property fair in Munich

Hamburg to host joint stand at fair

Around 60 Hamburg-based firms including three start-ups, backed by Hamburg Invest's Startup Unit, will present diverse properties on the Elbe, Alster and Bille at the upcoming Expo Real (October 4-6, 2022) trade fair in Munich. Hamburg Invest’s new property website will give an overview of the Hanseatic commercial property market at Hamburg’s joint Stand 430 in Hall B2.

"Despite all the recent crisis-like developments, Hamburg's property market remains one of the most appealing for anyone interested in planning and building. The challenges have not diminished in view of the city's climate plan. We invite everyone to participate in this essential joint task and to seize the great opportunities offered in Hamburg," said Dr Dorothee Stapelfeldt, Senator for Urban Development. Dr. Rolf Strittmatter, Managing Director of Hamburg Invest, added: "We have reached the level of the pre-pandemic years with 60 strong partners at the joint stand. It shows how important the fair is as a trend barometer for the entire industry. Companies in Hamburg are offering an impressive range of products along the entire value chain of the industry as well as ideas, concepts, financing, realisation, marketing, operation and use."

European hydrogen centre 

The hydrogen sector in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region is expected to create new jobs and establish an entire hydrogen ecosystem with production, import, infrastructure, storage and application industries. The property industry in particular will benefit from the interlinking of the energy industry. Electricity, heat and mobility will be thought of as a network to operate renewable energy systems efficiently in buildings.

Companies and start-ups at joint stand

The property start-ups DiConneX GmbH, Modoplus GmbH and ViertelCheck GmbHb will share the joint stand with Hafencity Hamburg GmbH, Hamburger Sparkasse AG, Europa Center AG, the MOMENI Group and HC Hagemann real estate GmbH. All three start-ups use information technology to make the property sector more efficient and sustainable without diminishing their services. The proptechs find the "right mix of the new and old economy in Hamburg", said Strittmatter, adding: "A strong property industry and a transparent start-up ecosystem are the be-all and end-all for choosing a proptech location."
