The Malaysia Property Exhibition (Mapex) 2014 in Penang this weekend will be more than just a property fair.

Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (Rehda) Penang chairman Datuk Jerry Chan Fook Sing (pic) said visitors could bring their children along as there would be a Kids Corner where they could play.

“There will also be a clown going around giving out candy floss and popcorn.

“We will also be arranging for a model to dress up as Captain Francis Light to escort Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to the stage to launch the exhibition,” Chan told a press conference on Mapex 2014, which will be held at the Subterranean Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre from Friday to Sunday.

The event is organised by Rehda and Henry Butcher Malaysia (Penang).

“The organisers will donate RM50,000, generated from the sales of the exhibition booths, to six charities at the launch.

“They are the D’Home Mental Health Association, The Salvation Army Penang Children’s Home, Grace Harmony Home, Penang Cheshire Home, Children Protection Society and St Nicholas Home Penang,” Chan said.

Rehda committee member Ng Chin-U said the exhibition would primarily showcase residential property projects in Penang.

He expects some 30,000 visitors to the event which will showcase projects with property prices ranging from RM346,000 to RM15mil.

Special sales packages will be offered during the exhibition which will also have lot of activities for kids and adults.

There will be a daily lucky draw at 7pm. The daily grand prizes are trips for two persons to Bali, Bangkok and Koh Samui.

The exhibition will open from 10am to 9pm daily over the three days. Entry is free.

    ya lah, property fair is like a one stop centre for buying properties (maybe you can call it one-stop sucker centre), developers have to quickly push out all the stock in hand, before penang put in more restrictions for foreign ownership and anti speculation measures.

    Spore is doing a good job in it’s drive to slow down property price. In fact they are already seeing a -20% price down, without any significant impact to their economy. We should emulate that too.
