China-based international property portal Juwai will be hosting its first-ever conference for international developers marketing to Chinese homebuyers next week, as the platform for mainland home buyers and international developers continues to expand its market.
The three-day event will be led off on Thursday, December 3rd with an invitation-only session featuring a presentation from Mingtiandi founder Michael Cole, as well as speeches by Juwai co-founder Simon Henry, Fosun Property Holdings Executive President Gong Ping, and Greenland Group’s Head of Overseas Sales, Yu Qing.
Juwai has rode the wave of wealthy Chinese looking for homes overseas to become the best known platform for developers and agents marketing to mainland buyers.
Where Chinese Investors are Headed Next Year
At the Juwai Developer Summit 2015, Michael will present Mingtiandi’s predictions for which locations will be the hottest targets for China’s major property investors in 2016, based on the market intelligence platform’s analysis of more than 250 Chinese real estate investments of over $200 million in value since 2012.
This will be the second time that Michael has presented at a Juwai event, after speaking on the impact of China’s regulatory liberalisations on the outbound investment wave at the company’s Agent Summit in May of this year.
Immediately preceding Michael’s address, Gong Ping of Fosun will be speaking on the investment conglomerate’s real estate strategy. Fosun, which is led by billionaire Guo Guangchang, has made some of China’s best known property acquisitions, including the $725 million purchase of New York’s One Chase Manhattan Plaza (now renamed 28 Liberty) as well as making major deals in Milan, Sydney and Tokyo.
Speaking immediately after Michael, Yu Qing of Greenland Group will be speaking on the outlook for global real estate markets and the investment trends among major developers. Greenland has been one of China’s most prolific global developers, and is now pursuing billions of dollars in development projects in more than eight countries.
Showcasing How Properties Are Marketed in China
The focus of the final two days of the event will be on giving Juwai’s international attendees a look into how properties are marketed on the mainland.
On the second day, representatives of developers from the US, Canada, Vietnam, the Bahamas, and several African countries will tour three projects in Shanghai belonging to the event’s co-organiser, Fosun International, and on Saturday, December 5th will take an all day trip to Suzhou to visit Hong Kong developer Wharf’s Ambassador Villa project.
Juwai was recently named a 2015 Red Herring Top 100 Global company by the tech industry journal, an honour that followed up on the tech startup being named to the tech industry journal’s Top 100 Asia award, which recognised Juwai as one of Asia’s best private companies.
According to the Shanghai-based firm, Juwai.com now has 2.6 million monthly visits from Chinese-speaking consumers in 315 cities in China and 48 countries around the world. The platform showcases 2.5 million listings for properties from 89 countries.
Mingtiandi is the official media sponsor of the Juwai Developer Summit 2015.
