Three illustrious speakers gather in London
This week, Samih Sawiris, the executive chairman of Andermatt Swiss Alps; the legendary Bernhard Russi, a former Olympic and World champion downhill ski racer and Geoffrey Kent, Founder, Chairman and CEO of the world’s leading luxury travel companies, joined forces to promote the alpine development in Andermatt, Switzerland.
Attended by prospective buyers, and London’s media, the exclusive event was hosted by Abercrombie & Kent International Estates at The Club – the private members club in London’s Café Royal. This was the first time these three illustrious speakers have gathered together to speak to London’s property market about the Andermatt Swiss Alps project.
Following the completion of the Chedi hotel and with construction well underway on the rest of the project, Mr Sawiris spoke to the gathering about the future of the development, which will offer a range of apartments, penthouses and chalets. He also explained more about Andermatt Swiss Alp’s exclusive exemption from Lex Koller and second home initiative laws; allowing non-Swiss residents to purchase and sell properties without restrictions.
Bernhard Russi spoke about the new golf course, which has just been completed, as well as the development of the ski area, which will connect Andermatt and Sedrun, creating one of the largest and most varied ski resorts in Switzerland. He also gave an energetic insight into the wonders of this beautiful destination – including swimming in one of the over 40 mountain lakes, for those brave enough!
Geoffrey Kent told guests in a passionate talk about the founding and vision of Abercrombie and Kent, which is based on experiential travel. He highlighted the important steps that are being taken in Andermatt to ensure a ground breaking year-round resort.
The event was a huge success with prospective buyers getting an exclusive insight into what makes Andermatt special, and why it is a great investment for UK residents looking to purchase a second home or invest in the Swiss property market.
