On 9 May 2024, the Great Britain-Cyprus Business Association in association with Spector Constant & Williams organised the  GBCY International Investment Conference 2024, which was a huge success.

 

Several established and reputable Firms, based in the UK, had the opportunity to present  Investment opportunities in the UK in Real Estate and other Industries.

At the same time, Cyprus Firms promoted Cyprus Investment opportunities, and why Cyprus is the perfect place to invest, to relocate or even to live.

The conference was aiming, as always, to promote the business networking between the two countries, Cyprus and UK, however, at this conference there was a little more focus on promoting real estate and other investment opportunities in the UK, as there were a number of well-known businesses attending and taking part in the conference from the UK.

Shipping updates also have be included in this conference.

At the same time, speakers and panelists, based in Cyprus, had the opportunity to raise their points prove why Cyprus is the perfect place to invest in several sectors, to relocate or even to live.

Finally, exhibitors had the opportunity to meet with investment migrants, prospective luxury real estate buyers, wealthy individuals, consultants and other delegates, they can do business together.

We have proved, during the last Conferences we have organised, that we are more experienced and connected than ever, and we are more than able to organise a very successful International Investment Conference, second to none, with a great turnover, as regards the attendance.

I would like to thank all the speakers and panelists as well as our sponsors for their priceless contribution to the success of the event.

At the same time, I would like to thank all the delegates, who attended this event and I am sure they left the venue satisfied for the quality of the presentations, but also for the whole event. Finally, I hope they enjoyed the lunch at one of the best hotels in Cyprus, the Four Seasons Hotel.​

This conference featured big-name speakers and exhibitors from Great Britain, Cyprus and other countries.

Thank you
