PETALING JAYA (May 11): The 2016 Mapex Property Showcase is targeting to have at least 25,000 visitors at the five-day event, the organising chairperson of Mapex 2016, Carrie Fong told TheEdgeProperty.com today.
The 2016 MAPEX Property Showcase, which has the theme “A Better Home for A Better Tomorrow”, kicked off today and will run daily from 10am to 10pm until this Sunday at the 1Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya. TheEdgeProperty.com is the media partner of 2016 MAPEX Property Showcase.
According to Fong, the main objective of the event is to provide an opportunity for Rehda Youth and Rehda members to showcase their properties to the public and also to engage with them.
Some of the participating developers in the event include UEM Sunrise, OSK Property, Sime Darby and Genting Property.
“The showcase will be carried out in a boutique style that is located in high traffic locations within the mall, unlike the conventional property exhibitions in halls and convention centres,” she said.
“In this way, visitors can treat this [2016 Mapex Property Showcase] as part of their normal routine shopping,” she added.
Meanwhile, Rehda Youth is also partnering with Farm Fresh Milk for a recycling-themed competition for 30 students aged 10 to 12 years from SJK (C) Puay Chai 2 during the event. There will be activities for the students to display their creativity while raising awareness about the importance of reusing and recycling.
“The participants will have to transform old Farm Fresh milk bottles into something useable such as storage containers or smartphone holders,” she explained.
Fong added that the winner will walk away with 1,000 ONECARD U Points followed by 700 and 300 ONECARD U Points for the second and third placed contestants respectively. All 30 participants will receive a hamper worth RM100.
"I think it is important to educate the children from a young age the importance of taking care of the environment by recycling and reusing materials. What sets us apart from other exhibitions is that visitors of all ages will be able to enjoy activities from colouring contest, face painting to looking at properties," she added.
Fong encouraged visitors to make full use of the opportunity to approach the reputable developers at 2016 MAPEX Property Showcase on the properties they are interested in and check out special packages or discounts the developers are offering.
There will be 35,000 worth of U Points to be given away to visitors via activities such as passport redemption, contests and lucky draws. Successful transactions during the event will also see purchasers entitled to win up to RM10,000 ONECARD U Points.
As part of Rehda Youth’s ongoing CSR programme, a donation of RM50,000 will be channelled to rebuild a child care centre for Women's Aid Organisation and build a home for an orang asli family with social enterprise Epic Homes.
