In addition, the Festival recognizes the global trends and offers projections of future developments in the real estate investment sector.

Festival of Real Estate Investment – FREI is a themed and selective event dedicated to the topics of investing and real estate sector development. The gathering is intended for the investors and commercial companies in the field of real estate, representatives of state bodies, infrastructure companies, and representatives of international institutions, professional and general public. FREI represents a modern form of exchange of information and experiences, as well as acquiring new knowledge, with the aim of strengthening the bases for a more efficient operation of the entities interested in the real estate investment sector.

At FREI, the investors have an opportunity to get familiar with the details of the state strategy and plans guiding the real estate sector, from the first hand, but also to influence, with their suggestions and proposals, in an organized and systematic manner, on the activities of the relevant state institutions. Of course, FREI is an excellent opportunity for promotion of the implemented and planned projects.

The fact that the event is supported by the Government of Montenegro adds up to the relevance and quality of the program concept. Executive organizer of the event is the consortium of companies “Biznis Link” from Belgrade and “RLC Montenegro” from Podgorica.

FREI always entails several program forms, among others, the FREI exhibition and the already well-known FREI programs such as „Success Show“, FREI focus, FREI tribune, FREI parliament…FREI is not a classical conference, seminar or fair. The festival is actually a multidisciplinary themed event, oriented to development of the real estate investment in the countries of the region.

The other programs section comprises of the “ex-cathedra“ contents which take place at the Congress hall and other halls of the “Maestral“ hotel, in the form of company-project presentations, expert addresses at the invitation of the Programme Committee, round tables, seminars, discussion tribunes and panels…The Organizer attributes special attention to the selection of renown international experts who will, through their lectures at the Festival, present the newest accomplishments, attractive projects, developmental trends and other domains of the real estate sector.

In the structure of individual participants, the decision-makers from big companies, real estate professionals and other real estate VIPs prevail. As a rule, the Festival is attended by the ministers and other representatives of the line state bodies, managers of infrastructure companies, representatives of the accredited media, independent analysts…

When it comes to Montenegro, it should be mentioned that the FREI participants can get regular information on progress of capital projects in Montenegro, in the region and wider, and the festival character of the gathering arises from the selection of those to whom will be given the right of participation in the program, as well as the moderately competitive character of the event.

The fascinating coastal landscapes, the hospitality of people in Budva, and the comfort of the hotel contribute organizer effort to provide participants relax business atmosphere which will make it easier to achieve the goals of arrival at FREI.
