Wednesday of 10 October saw the close of the 21st Expo Real, the prestigious commercial property and investment exhibition, held in Munich. Czech cities and regions have also focused on the presentation of their innovation potential, which makes them increasingly competitive, in addition to showing their investment visions and projects on their joint exhibition stand. Trends and predictions from real estate experts, participants in Expo Real: growth prospects will remain favourable for European investment and property market despite geopolitical tensions, commercial wars and international indebtedness. In the CEE region, including the Czech Republic, the economic cycle will reach its peak soon; however, it is envisaged that no steep decline will occur. What is expected to play an increasingly important role on the property market, aside from innovation, is digitalization, especially within the concept of so-called smart cities.
