The Pattaya Property Show unfolds next week at the Hilton Pattaya, where more than 50 leading developers and realtors will showcase condominiums, luxury villas, houses, and commercial properties from throughout Thailand. Several yet unannounced luxury launches also will be unveiled, benefiting from the wow factor of Pattaya’s largest-ever property exhibition.
Admission to the four-day extravaganza, Jan. 9 to 12, is free to the public. Opening times are 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Venue for the show is Hilton Pattaya’s massive 17th floor ballroom above Central Festival Shopping Centre.
Pattaya Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome welcomed the exhibition as encouraging more buyers and investors to the region. “Locals, expats and international visitors will have the opportunity to seeing a huge number of real estate choices conveniently all under one roof at the Hilton Pattaya,” the mayor said. He called the real estate industry “essential for the future plans of Pattaya” inasmuch as it brings large-scale investment as well as new employment opportunities.
Exhibition organizer Mike Bridge pointed out that “there is huge rental and ownership potential in Pattaya for its various market segments,” including Pattaya and Bangkok expats, international tourists and the vibrant Thai domestic market with a keen interest on owning second homes on the Eastern Seaboard.
Observers attribute Pattaya’s success in property sales partly to value for money as cities such as Singapore and Hong Kong are four times as expensive. They also cite the upgrading of infrastructure, particularly the multi-lane highway between Pattaya and Suvarnabhumi airport, the prospect of a high-speed rail link by the end of the decade, and Pattaya’s relative immunity to flooding compared with vulnerable areas such as the Central Plains and Bangkok itself. Furthermore, Pattaya now offers accommodations, restaurants and leisure facilities on a par with those of Bangkok in terms of quality and variety.
Universal Group said, “We are delighted to be the platinum sponsor at the first Pattaya Property Show as it is an excellent initiative to promote the city and the region as a first-class seaside resort.”
Gold sponsor A+ Properties is promoting a lucky draw during the exhibition. Visitors to their stall will be able to enter a lucky draw for the first 30 buyers booking or reserving a unit to win a Nissan Almera.
Another gold sponsor, Blue Sky Group, said the exhibition is an ideal opportunity to promote their projects such as Atlantis Condo Resort, Grande Caribbean Condo Resort, and Venetian Signature Condo Resort.
Exhibitors, who include all the big names in local property, confirmed they would have Thai, English and Russian speaking staff at the show.
