This International Business Event featured Cyprus as the perfect place to

invest, relocate, visit for any reason but also to live.

The primary purpose was to update all the interested professionals, businessmen and other individuals based in the UK but also in other countries worldwide, about investment opportunities in Cyprus as well as the Cyprus Permanent Residence Permit, Tax benefits, Legal Schemes, Funds and property developments. 

Our forum has provided the opportunity for professional people such as lawyers, accountants, bankers, economists, financial consultants as well as property developers and real estate agents to present their services and projects. It was also a perfect business networking experience at the end where our attendees may have benefited from the acquaintances that they made.

Speakers and panelists had the opportunity to raise their points and prove why Cyprus is the perfect place to invest, relocate or even to live.

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 that we are more experienced and connected than ever, and we have managed to organise a very successful International Business Event, second to none, with a great turnover, as regards the attendance.
