Collier's attempt to present the Greek market from an authentic and straight-forward local point of view by emphasizing that Greece has plenty of space for reforms that can generate growth was supported by one of the biggest active investors of real estate in Greece, Lamda Development.

A private property tour of Lamda Developments’ milestones properties in the area of Amarousiou, Shopping Malls “Golden Hall” and “The Mall Athens” including “Ilida Residential Complex” was held from Dimitri Zontanos. The property tour also included private access to OAKA Olympic Stadium.
