HAMBURG, Germany & CANNES, France--(Business Wire)--
The Hamburg Metropolitan Region presents itself from 12-14 March, 2013 at MIPIM,
the world`s biggest property show at Cannes, as a liveable waterfront metropolis
and a solid real estate market. Hamburg also will acquaint industry visitors
with two events: the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg and the
international garden show (igs 2013).

With the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg provides contributions to
current questions of urban development and quality of life, while also the
international garden show (igs 2013) will take place in Hamburg. Both large
events will link the Elbe islands of Wilhelmsburg and Veddel and Harburg`s inner
port to HafenCity and Hamburg`s city centre. IBA Hamburg presents innovative
residential construction with model character at the Hamburg stand. Showcasing
more than 60 building, social and cultural projects and programmes, IBA Hamburg
reveals how a large city could continue to grow in the 21st century, well
balanced both ecologically and socially. 

"Our city is open to innovative approaches in urban development. And Hamburg
knows that ambitious climate protection targets can be achieved by implementing
new technologies to make the consumption of resources more efficient while
increasing the quality of life of the city. We create perspectives in Hamburg -
for citizens as well as for national and international investors", says
Hamburg`s First Mayor Olaf Scholz. The mayor continues: "MIPIM is one of the
most important market places. At the banks of the Alster and Elbe rivers, the
economic signals are set for growth. This fact particularly applies to the real
estate industry." 

A major highlight of Hamburg`s trade fair participation will be an event with
Günther H. Oettinger, EU Commissioner for energy with focus on emerging topics
of urban development: The question "Best practice in energy policy - is Germany
leading the field?" will be discussed by Mr. Oettinger, Joe Montgomery (CEO of
ULI Urban Land Institutes Europe) and Dr. Andreas Mattner (president of ZIA -
Central Real Estate Committee). 

This year 24 partners display projects and innovative services at the joint
Hamburg booth, which is organised by HWF Hamburg Business Development
Corporation. Many partners, like Deutsche Immobilien AG, Dr. Helmut Greve Bau-
und Boden AG, Grossmann & Berger GmbH, Hamburger Sparkasse AG, Procom Invest
GmbH & Co. KG, Quantum Immobilien AG, Wölbern Invest KG and Europa-Center AG,
are first-time exhibitors.
