TPS Real Estate took part in the annual international commercial real estate tradeshow REX-2014 that was held from April 23rd to 25th in the central showroom Expocenter in Moscow.
The projects of TPS Real Estate were placed in one of the biggest venues of REX-2014 – the 45-sqm stand where both operational and under construction shopping and leisure projects were represented.
The company presently has three functional shopping malls: Galereya Krasnodar, MoreMall in Sochi and Ocean Plaza in Kiev. Three other projects are under construction: the shopping and leisure center on Kutuzovsky Avenue with the gross built area of 137,000 sq m, along with the 114,000-sqm shopping mall on Khoroshevskoe shosse in Moscow, as well as the 134,000-sqm Galereya Novosibirsk mall. The Novosibirsk project is scheduled for commissioning at the end of 2014, whereas the malls in Moscow are to be put into operation in 2015.
The management of TPS Real Estate held more than 60 planned meetings with potential partners, tenants and equipment suppliers at the company’s stand. Besides familiarizing themselves with the company’s projects, visitors to the stand could take part in the interactive game: potential partners of the company filled out jocose questionnaire surveys using the tablets on offer; as a result, they could virtually sign lease agreements to new premises in the Antarctic, for example, with the indexation of up to 300%. The interactive game was specifically developed by the company for the tradeshow and will be used at other sectoral events in the future, where TPS Real Estate will participate.
What’s more, First Vice President of TPS Real Estate Alexei Chinaliev took part in the business program of REX-2014 as an expert. In his address at the conference “Development Projects in New Economic Realities” he shared his vision of the current situation in the Russian development market.
As was noted by the organizers of REX-2014, namely Mall Group, this year the tradeshow was at the peak of popularity, demonstrating the growth of all performance parameters. In particular, the built-up area increased to 10,000 sq m, whereas the attendance exceeded 6,700 visitors. More than 15 sessions, seminars and round tables were held as part of the business program, with about 200 experts participating, including the chief executives of leading Russian and international investment, development, consulting and retail companies.
