IPAX is an opportunity for a limited selection of firms to access some of the leading companies in the property industry. It’s the perfect way to display your services, products and skills to the highest levels in your target audience – CEOs, Owners and senior management. We look for expert companies to exhibit and deliberately limit the number of exhibitors for each industry sector. This reduces competition with similar firms and gives you more time to concentrate on meeting your networking prospects.


The show is a full business-to-business networking environment for all sectors of the property and real estate industry. The event gives all attendees the opportunity to showcase themselves to some of the finest companies to make connections, form alliances and generate new business.


Space is available for high-visibility exhibition stands to present your products or services to this unique captive audience alongside related companies from quality goods, services and related industries. This is the most effective way to engage with attendees and demonstrate your projects, products or specialisations.
