News: PropertyGuru makes headway at PIHex

Jun 8, 2012 is making headway as the online media partner of the Property Investment and Home Expo (PIHex), which is held from 7 to 10 June at the 1Borneo Hypermall in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

The partnership was built through a communication between PropertyGuru and Maxx Media Sdn, an event company based in Kota Kinabalu and organiser of the PIHex. The expo will feature top developments in Malaysia and Australia, along with the latest home décor and furnishings.

"We aim to build a lasting relationship with, and this partnership is perfectly timed as the site is also currently working on further raising its profile in East Malaysia," said Elson Kho, Executive Director at Maxx Media Sdn Bhd.

"The site’s involvement has definitely helped us a lot. Several of our exhibitors were far more eager to participate when they learned that was coming in, and the same goes for our guest speakers," noted Kho.

John Paul Sta Maria, Country Manager at PropertyGuru Malaysia, said, "In conjunction with our recently-founded East Malaysian branch in Kota Kinabalu, we are confident that joining forces with Maxx Media for PIHex is definitely a move in the right direction as both they and PropertyGuru are intent on offering property-related products and services."

Sta Maria added, "We are excited to initiate our maiden foray into East Malaysia, particularly into the Kota Kinabalu market as our Q1 Malaysia Property Sentiment Survey 2012 has revealed that the capital Sabah is predicted to be one of Malaysia’s next top residential hotspots, surpassing the likes of Ipoh, Kuching and Balik Pulau."

According to Kho, PIHex will include "16 free workshops courtesy of PropertyGuru’s Head of Marketing, Jason Thoe and seven other highly experienced specialists. There’s absolutely no cost attached, but plenty to learn and experience."
