About A Place in the Sun

A Place in the Sun is a famous, highly visible name in the UK - to the British public it simply means ‘overseas property‘. Whether you are an agent, developer, property lawyer or other service provider, A Place in the Sun Live is the ideal environment to put your business in front of a motivated audience of British buyers of overseas property.

In 2005, A Place in the Sun Live was launched to give overseas estate agents, developers and professional service providers the opportunity to present their properties and services to British buyers face-to-face.

All visitors pay to come to the event, a clear display of serious intent to research properties and understand the buying process, with our visitor feedback showing a significant uplift in the number of people planning to purchase in the next six months. Our buyers are split 50/50 between those buying a holiday home and planning a permanent move overseas.

A significant number of exhibitors now regularly book stands at most of our events but there is always space available for new exhibitors to showcase their properties or professional services.

A Place in the Sun Live - Seminars

The centrepiece of A Place in the Sun Live is The Hub where the stars of the TV show and industry experts give advice and insight on buying overseas property. This is where our key clients like to book premium stand locations and where our ever-popular seminar on buying in Spain takes place, a packed daily event to motivate and inspire.

The wide-ranging seminar programme is one of the main attractions for our audience and stretches across the Hub, the French VillageFlorida Pavilion and a separate Seminar Theatre which covers buying property in other countries. The engaging content aims to explain how to buy and remove the obstacles to purchase that many people have.

If you want to reach British buyers, A Place in the Sun Live should be at the heart of your UK marketing strategy. With no other bespoke overseas property exhibition in the UK, these events present a unique opportunity to meet and talk to prospective buyers – a genuinely qualified audience who have bought a ticket to attend this overseas property exhibition.

A Place in the Sun Live - Property Showcase

2019 also saw the launch of a smaller-format event to reach new buyers, A Place in the Sun Property Showcase, which has taken place in Glasgow and in Dublin at the RDS.

“Certainly was a national show as we had buyers on the stand who travelled from the north of England, Devon & Cornwall and even a few in from Ireland too.”
