Welcome to the Nordic region’s biggest and most visited exhibition for buying properties abroad.
Fair Media International arranged the first exhibition for buying properties in Spain at the World Trade Center, WTC, in the Swedish capital of Stockholm in October 2003. This first and relatively small exhibition attracted 1.500 visitors and proved to be a great success for the 14 exhibitors, who were delighted when Fair Media arranged another successful fair in the spring of 2004.
The interest among professionals in the international property market grew rapidly. Fair Media International therefore invited exhibitors from all over the world to participate in the autumn exhibition of 2004, now under the name of “Buying Properties Abroad”.
By Autumn 2005, the exhibitions had grown to such an extent, that there was a need to move to a larger exhibition hall and Ericsson Globe, Annexet became the new home for the twice annual exhibitions in Stockholm, the flag ship and the largest of Fair Medias exhibitions, Buying Properties Abroad.
In spring 2012 we decided to move again to the newly built Kistamässan in the northern part of Stockholm but we continued to alternate between the two exhibition venues.
In spring 2017 we moved yet again to Stockholmsmässan, the biggest exhibition complex in Stockholm.
The next exhibition in Stockholm will be the 17th – 18th of February 2024 and it will be held at Kistamässan.
The exhibitions are a market place for exhibitors from the whole world who want to get in contact with qualified buyers. Our exhibitors come from around 15 different countries and are made up by agents and constructors plus other companies related to the business.
We arrange different seminars that are all free for the public. In the official folder we give information about these and also the persons responsible. Normally they treat different popular destinations where Scandinavians buy properties but also specific seminars about tax consequences when buying a property abroad, pension abroad and possibilities for mortgages. See the main page for the exhibition for the seminar program.
Opening hours: Saturday and Sunday between 10.30 – 17.00. Free entrance.
Restaurant: In the restaurant/cafeteria we serve food as well as sandwiches and drinks.
Folder: At the entrance the visitor receives a folder where it clearly is stated where the different exhibitors have their stands and in which countries they sell properties.

Fair Media International AB warns companies for Expo Guide and Fair Guide.com!
Expo-Guide and Fairguide.com/Construct Data Verlag regularly publicize their services to exhibitors at events, primarily in Europe. Both companies use a misleading form, which resembles an organizers’ Free Catalogue Listing Service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Doing so contracts the purchaser into the three-year, non-retractable agreement. Non-payment is then followed by aggressive debt collecting by Premium Recovery.
Expo-Guide and Fairguide.com/Construct Data Verlag have no connection with exhibition organizers or any of their events but they deliberately target exhibitors who are about to exhibit across Europe.
We have also heard about a company that say that they sell the attendees email lists from our exhibitions, this is simply not true and we strongly advice that you do not encourage this as it is a scam.
