Property Investment Expo by LIFULL (LIFULL社投資EXPO)

I went to the “Property Investment Expo” held by LIFULL, the biggest property listing company in Japan.
The venue is Tokyo Big Sight which is in front of Tokyo International Exhibition station.

本日は、国内最大の不動産広告サイトを運営するLIFULL社主催の「投資EXPO」に行って来ました。
場所は、国際展示場駅前にある東京ビックサイトです。

 

Although I entered the venue during lunch hour, the place was occupied with so many attendees, and very vibrant.

お伺いしたのはお昼でしたが、場内、多くの参加者で賑わっており、活気に溢れていました。

  

The expo was a large scale event filled with the four seminar rooms running different topics in parallel, and total 54 exhibiting companies.
As for today, Sunday September 16, the 2nd day of the expo, majority of the exhibiting companies are either development companies or investment companies focusing on selling each unit of a newly developed apartment or second-hand apartment. Since my main interest is in investing in a whole apartment building, I felt a bit disappointed initially since my expectation is not met.

セミナー会場は4つで並行開催、ブース出展会社は合計54社と非常に大規模なものでした。
開催2日目の今日9月16日(日)は、出展会社は区分マンションの新築デベロッパー又は仲介会社が多く、私自身は、一棟物のアパートやマンションに関心があったため、当初は思惑と違い、残念に思っていました。

However, while talking with several exhibiting companies, I was lucky to encounter a renowned developer with long tracking records which has been developing a lot of high end new apartment buildings within 10-minute walk from a nearest station inside the central 23 wards of Tokyo. I also encountered an investment company which buy a second-hand apartment unit by themselves, and selling it to investors at close to a purchase price without taking any referral fee.
My company are going to introduce properties of these companies soon based on an agreement with each company. We are also going to support the investment company which already planned a seminar in Singapore soon by helping them to collect more customers over there via our local partner companies.

ところが、幾つかの出展会社さんとお話ししている中で、東京都23区内の駅近(10分以内)にハイエンドの新築マンションを数多く手掛けられている歴史のあるデベロッパーさんや、中古区分マンションを自社で先ず買取り、紹介手数料を一切取らずに、仕入値に近い形で直販されている投資会社さんなど、幾つか、とても興味深い会社さんとの出会いがありました。
近日中に、弊社でも各社との合意に基づき、これらの物件の紹介を開始させて頂きますし、また、シンガポールでのセミナーを既に企画されている会社さんには、弊社の現地パートナー会社を通じて、集客支援をさせて頂くこととなりました。

  

Eventually, our company managed to create some prospective business plans with other companies. I left the venue by feeling bright and cheerful.

最終的には、他社さんと幾つかの将来展望あるビジネスプランを作れ、明るい気持ちで会場を後にしました。
