GEORGE TOWN: The Star Property Fair 2012 got off to a good start with exhibitors expressing surprise over the big turnout of visitors despite it being a weekday.

Many exhibitors said they received enquiries and even closed sales within the first two hours of the fair’s opening at Gurney Plaza and G Hotel here at 10am yesterday.

IJM Land senior manager (sales and marketing) Patsy Lee said she was overwhelmed by the encouraging response as they sold three condominium units shortly after the fair was opened to the public.

“There were about 50 enquiries on our various projects. Based on our conversations with those who made enquiries, they were serious buyers.

“It seemed they have done their homework as most of the questions they asked were pertinent to our projects,” she said.

Asia Green Group director Tan Li Mei said she was thrilled over the large crowd at the company’s booths.

“We normally expect people to come either at night or during weekends. But the turnout was good, considering that it is a Thursday,” Tan said.

Ivory Properties Group Bhd senior marketing executive Koay Tze Chung said the response on the first day of the fair was better compared to previous years.

“Many of them came well prepared by asking all the relevant details on our projects. We expect them to return during the weekend once they have finished conducting surveys at the fair today (yesterday),” he said.

SP Setia Bhd sales and marketing property division (North) senior executive Agnes Chua said they received about 40 enquiries for one of their condominium projects.

“It is a weekday but there is already a sizeable turnout at the fair. We expect things to get better as the fair goes on,” she said.

Fifty exhibitors, including financial institutions and investment companies, are taking part in the four-day fair which is touted as Malaysia’s premier showcase for stylish living.

The fair, organised by The Star for the 10th year, is open from 10am to 10pm daily until Sunday. Admission is free.
