Rehda aims to showcase 70 developers at Mapex 2018

PLANNING to purchase a new house or invest in a property? The largest and most awaited property event, Malaysia Property Expo (Mapex) 2018 is back again, this year at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (MVEC) from April 27 to 29.

Mapex is regarded as the largest one-stop centre event that brings convenience to those seeking to purchase or invest in property. The expo offers a wide range of innovative property development projects, from "under construction" to "completed properties" across a broad range of property types. Admission is free and open to the public.

The organiser, Real Estate and Housing Developer's Association Malaysia (Rehda), expects to gather at least 70 developers under one roof this year, offering some of the best property deals.

Organising chairman of Mapex 2018 Datuk Ng Seing Liong (pix, third left) said that the Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Mansor will be officiating the opening ceremony on April 27.

During the press conference, it was announced that over 40 developers have confirmed participation. The target is to rope in 70 to 80 including Ecoworld Development Group Berhad, IJM Land Berhad, Glomac Berhad and others.

"Our theme this year is #ahomeforbettertomorrow," said Ng at the press conference at the Rehda office. Of the belief that home is the most important asset, Ng also said, "We would like to emphasise that property is a good investment and it will appreciate in value.

"Securing a home early will ensure a better future as property investment is the safest investment that appreciates over time," he added. On its part, Ng said Rehda will continue to organise Mapex in its role to provide a good platform for potential buyers in search of their dream homes.

Rehda's plans for the year is to organise 20 expositions, two already held in January and February, outside the Klang Valley. The weekend of March 16 to 18 saw a "mini Mapex" held at Setia City Mall in Bandar Setia Alam, Shah Alam offering 20 property developer booths.

Visitors to this year's Mapex 2018 can expect an exciting time listening to insightful talks on property by industry experts, receive deals and discounts from developers on selected developments. A RM2,000 cash giveaway also awaits 15 lucky individuals who make their property purchases at the expo.

Additionally, there will be a blood donation drive and popcorn and cotton candy "on the house".
