Overseas property interest up in Europe

From Global Edge

Visitor numbers to some of Europe’s biggest overseas property shows have risen significantly compared with last year.

Fair Media, organizers of the largest overseas property shows in Sweden and Norway, have run three events so far in 2010 with numbers up between 5 percent and 15 percent across their shows in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe.

In Denmark, the market leading exhibition, the "Homes Abroad" show, is reporting numbers up over 20 percent compared with the autumn of 2009, while in Russia, AiGroup says attendance is up 4 percent for their property investment show, which took place earlier in the month.
