Mark said he will be taking the opportunity to showcase Newcastle and the Hunter as well as the rest of Australia in his presentation.
“I’m speaking about real estate trends and investment opportunities in Australia which will certainly include our region,” Mark said.
“Interest in and appetite for investing in our transforming city and region is high.
“I’m getting lots of interest from international buyers from a number of the development projects we market locally and South Korea is another exciting market.”
The conference is being held at the same time as the Korea Economic Daily and Informa Group UK hold Cityscape Korea 2017, which they describe as “Asia’s most powerful real estate exposition”. The expo will showcase real estate products and opportunities from 20 countries.
