    Are there other property exhibitions and events in Hong Kong?

    Sure. The exhibitions listed are big and sometimes only dedicated to real estate companies who want to reach out to other service providers. But, you can also find plenty of smaller property events that are hosted by individual real estate agencies and brokers.

    One of the best websites to find such real estate events is Eventbrite.com.

    These events tend to be more niche and focused on a specific industry or country. For example, at the moment I’m writing this article, you can find events and seminars covering:

    • The Inside Info on the New York City Residential Buyer’s Market
    • Golden Visa – Spain, Mallorca (Invest in real estates from 500,000 euros)
    • UK Real estate investment Opportunities

    For up to date information, simply visit Eventbrite.com to find upcoming property events.
