FRANKFURT, September 30, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fraport AG will be presenting the strategic advantages of Frankfurt Airport City (FRA) as a top real estate location and showcasing FRA's latest real estate projects at the 13th Expo Real International Trade Fair for Commercial Property and Investment from October 4 to 6 in Munich, Germany (http://www.exporeal.net).
On October 5 from 4 p.m., a panel discussion will be held in the Metropolarena FrankfurtRheinMain presentation area at Stand 334 in Hall C1.

Urban planner Prof. Dr. Martin Wentz, from the International Real Estate Business School at the University of Regensburg, will deliver the keynote speech describing how the airport acts as a gravitational center for the region. The panel discussion will be moderated by Steffen Uttich from the real estate market section of the Frankfurt Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

At 6 p.m., visitors will be able to attend the Property Management Talk at Fraport AG's stand C1.230. In an open discussion Jorg Guderian, head of Fraport's external real estate and property management department will present the Fraport Group's know-how in the full-service management and technical control of complex multifunctional buildings.
