TechnologyRegion at the EXPO REAL with Four New Partners - Partners from France for the First Time

With 13 partners, TechnologyRegion relies on the presentation focus of future quarters "Zukunftsquartiere"

EXPO REAL is a must-attend for site marketing

From October 8 to 10 the TechnologyRegion GmbH (TRK) and its partners will once again pitch up their tents at EXPO REAL, the 21st international trade fair for property and investments in Munich. "The property sector continues to boom in 2018 – ideal conditions for successful networking and concrete business deals.

As Europe’s leading fair, EXPO REAL is a must-attend for us as site marketer that we have been using successfully together with our partners for years", explains Jochen Ehlgötz, Manager of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion GmbH, "with the four new partners of evohaus GmbH, Vollack Groupe, IHK Karlsruhe (Chamber of Commerce and Industry) as well as ADIRA, the economic development agency for Alsace, we can now show the potentials and possibilities of the region to the international audience of the fair even better."

"Zukunftsquartiere" as main topic

In 2018 the TRK took over the project management for the fair presentation from the Economic Development Department of the City of Karlsruhe. "We thank the Economic Development Department and especially Manager Michael Kaiser for the professional preparation and assistance during the last years", says Jochen Ehlgötz. "Together we want to expand our presence at the existing high level. Our main topics of mobility, energy and IT/digitalisation play an important role in the future development of property and future quarters."

Future quarters necessitate the bundling of various competences in all phases – from the integrated planning to sustainable and cost-effective operation. "The fact that the TechnologyRegion has solution competence for future quarters, was proven by our partners, for example by evohaus with the quarter Franklin in Mannheim, but also by EnBW that has brought a system to the market, the so-called SM!GHT, that can do much more than just be a street lamp, but also a WLAN hotspot, a measuring point or a traffic guidance system", explains Ehlgötz.

Talking to other partners

A first project meeting coordinated by the TRK already took place and after the starting signal, the planning for EXPO REAL 2018 is in full swing. "We are also talking to another large partner", explains Ehlgötz, "we would be glad, because then we could expand our tent in Munich even more and become more visible to the almost 42,000 trade visitors in October 2018."
