The latest from our European offices
The Resort Group has had great success in Europe for well over a year now, paying special attention to markets that will recognise the property prospects on offer in Cape Verde. With that in mind, several events have been arranged recently across different countries.
It has certainly been a busy couple of weeks for our European partners as they focus their efforts on reinforcing The Resort Group’s presence on the continent. Just last week, 30 real estate agents gathered at the Marriot Hotel Lisbon in sunny Portugal to hear more about the investment opportunities. Presenting to the industry crowd was our International Sales Director, David Dumble, and Luís Rodrigues, from Portuguese law firm GPA. The pair spoke about The Resort Group and what it brings to the table in detail, as well as the successful history of the Group, the products on offer and the stunning archipelago of Cape Verde. The presentations began with a welcome coffee in the morning and were followed by a lunch for all who attended. It was a truly successful exercise with many agents going on to promote the proposition to their investors.
Although an already popular holiday destination in south-west Europe, the increased attention has also had an impact on the archipelago’s presence in the press. Earlier this month, the Spanish newspaper, La Voz de Galicia, rained praise on the archipelago, calling it the “new Eldorado for Europeans”. Speaking of the regular sunshine and rising tourism, the article also recognises the importance of investment on the Islands and The Resort Group’s part in that process. What followed was a series of complimentary reports from reputable media outlets in Portugal, including Sapo 24, Dinheiro Vivo, Magazine Imobiliário, Diário Imobiliário, Turisver, Diário Noticias da Madeira and Vida Imobiliária.
Over in Eastern Europe, we are proud to announce that we have been awarded Luxury Brand of the Year 2017 in Poland. The accolade was picked up at the evening event on Saturday 18th November by the team from our Prague office, including our Office Manager, Pierre-Philippe Möller and local representative Zbigniew Popowski. It is an exceptional achievement for our Eastern European operations, their offices opened just over a year ago due to popular demand and they have been going from strength to strength ever since. Reports of the prestigious award win by the Group have appeared on various news and media outlets, including national TV stations such as Canal + and popular websites such as Wirtualna Polska.
Gala Luksusowa Marka Roku, which took place just outside Warsaw in the luxurious and exclusive Biskupi Castle hotel in Janów Podlaski, gathers premium business leaders from Poland and around the world to present their business within the luxury industry, as well as receive awards for those who have excelled in their field. The Gala is also an excellent networking opportunity. There is a luxury fair that lasts the whole weekend, where visitors have the opportunity to establish valuable contacts with the participants of the Gala and guests of the event – people from the world of business, show business and media from around the world.
