Theme: A New Era
2021 marks the start of a transformative period in global real estate. As we move forward into this new era, Africa’s property sector has a generational opportunity to set a new course and purpose for how we develop the continent’s built environment.

To achieve this, investors and developers must replace outdated conventions and create a new paradigm founded on future market dynamics, real demand and ESG principles.

In such an environment, this year’s theme, A New Era, will reveal how real estate decision makers will create the assets, funds and portfolios that will propel the next wave of global and regional investment.

• The is an enhanced virtual production.
• We ensure that your Company logo and leadership title(s) are always displayed in your sessions.
• This provides long term value and ROI after the Summit, which you can leverage on your own media channels.
