The hugely successful Overseas Property Show has just announced its 2015 tour dates. With a total of 12 shows planned up and down the nation, this year's tour will be bigger and better than ever.
In 2014, 3000 visitors attended the shows, which showcase properties from the sun-drenched paradises of Portugal, Cyprus, Spain, Italy and Florida. The 2015 events are set to attract way in excess of this number, as Chris White, Founding Director of boutique real estate agency Ideal Homes Portugal, which will be exhibiting at every show, comments,
"Everything about the Overseas Property Show this year is going to be bigger and better than ever before. We've got more tour dates, more properties and more experts on hand to provide advice. We're expecting a huge turnout this year."
The show's 2015 tour will include:
Bolton - 29, 30 and 31 August, Marcron Stadium
Birmingham - 4, 5 and 6 September, Motorcycle Museum
Norwich - 12 and 13 September, Mercure Norwich
Surrey - 18, 19 and 20 September, Epsom Racecourse
Crawley - 26 and 27 September, Arora Hotel Crawley
Brighton - 9, 10 and 11 October, Hilton Brighton Metropole
Guildford - 16, 17 and 18 October, Holiday Inn Guildford
Watford - 23, 24 and 25 October, Mercure Watford
Hertfordshire - 31 October and 1 November, Holiday Inn London Elstree
Newbury - 7 and 8 November, Hilton Newbury

Birmingham - 27, 28 and 29 November, Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport
The free to attend show is popular with everyone from those with firm plans to move overseas to individuals with just the vaguest notion that they might one day like a second home in the sun. With experts on hand to discuss each country in detail - from the property market to the paperwork requirements - the show has built a reputation as an essential resource for anyone interested in property overseas.
That interest is surging in the UK, as the best foreign exchange rate since November 2007 saw sterling reach €1.434 in July, meaning that holiday home buyers can now get vastly more for their money. Not only do they benefit when buying a property overseas, but their spending money also stretches further when they go to stay in it. Everything from a simple ice-cream on the beach to dinner at a swanky restaurant in a newly purchased frock has become cheaper thanks to the favourable exchange rate.
With experts predicting that the exchange rate could improve even further - €1.50 to the pound has been bandied about more than once - the Overseas Property Show tour could not have come at a better time.
Whether buyers are dreaming of a penthouse apartment with pool and BBQ area in Portugal, a Sea Caves villa in Cyprus or a Sun-kissed, front line villa in Spain, the Overseas Property Show is the place to be. Tickets are free to obtain and full details can be found at www.theoverseaspropertyshow.com.
"It's going to be an incredible summer," concludes Chris White. "UK buyers are eager to know just what their pounds will get them if they buy a property abroad and that is precisely why the Overseas Property Show is here to help."
