Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
The largest local real estate association in the U.S. has partnered with OPP to foster closer ties between the real estate communities of Miami and China.
The Miami Association of Realtors (MIAMI) is coming together with OPP to create a Mission to China this October to coincide with OPPLive China, which is being held from Thursday, October 23 - Friday, October 24 at the China World Hotel, Beijing.
Established in 2004, the business to business media, OPP, will be working closely with MIAMI and several other influential organizations to create a week of networking events in the build up to OPPLive and at the show itself. Beginning in Shanghai and then moving on to Beijing the Mission is all about creating long lasting partnerships with leading real estate companies with the clear goal of creating more Chinese incoming business for MIAMI Realtors and Developers. Participation is limited to members of MIAMI and of other approved participating associations.
OPPLive was established in London in 2005 and is the trade event for the global cross border residential property industry. It is there to connect and inform professionals. OPPLive China is a launch event, following on from its Asia debut in Singapore this spring, which was hailed as a “spectacular success.”
OPP Group Owner, Xavier Wiggins, says, “Working with such an incredibly powerful and forward thinking organization with massive membership (32,000) in an area of the USA that is already very attractive to the Chinese is an honor and an exciting challenge. The potential for a further drastic uplift in real estate buyers from China is there for all to see and it is our job to help MIAMI members forge relationships that count and that can be measured in sales.”
The agreement will see OPP offering a package of events to MIAMI members that include educational presentations and seminars on the Miami and Chinese markets for global real estate as well as pre-qualified meetings. OPP will be giving much exposure to the MIAMI delegates on the trip in the build up to the event, raising awareness of the opportunities in Miami real estate to the eager Chinese real estate companies, professionals, and organizations.
In turn, MIAMI will be promoting the Mission extensively to its membership as well as informing MIAMI members on the wide offering of OPP that is geared to driving global real estate alliances including the imminent launch of a major new online platform launch.
