Prepare yourself for Africa’s foremost and highly influential gathering in the real estate sector, the annual API Summit.

Representatives from Africa’s leading banks, pioneering listed funds, institutional investors, developers, operators, and other key stakeholders will converge, shaping the agenda for the continent’s real estate landscape.
WHAT WE aRE TALKING ABOUT
Following a period of transformation, Africa’s real estate industry has reached a more advanced stage, witnessing the emergence of sector and regional leaders. Through years of dedicated, long-term strategies, successful participants have achieved tangible returns and growth, demonstrating their ability to navigate challenges posed by macroeconomics, inflation, interest rates, and currency fluctuations.
Although geopolitical tensions may persist intermittently, Africa’s resurgent developers now have the opportunity to shape their development agenda. This is made possible by the emergence of new sources of capital, which support evolving demand patterns driven by affordability, occupier requirements, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations, as well as the influx of new investments. In the coming years, developers and investors who maintain their focus will be able to generate sustainable returns and achieve their desired yield targets in this new era. This year’s API Summit Theme, A New Horizon, will provide the tools for leaders invested in African real estate to navigate and thrive in this new period.
