API SUMMIT THEME:

AFRICA RE-SET

The way in which we live, work and play has been fundamentally re-set. This has transformed how occupiers utilize space; how we do business and how real estate investors are allocating capital. As we build back stronger, stakeholders across the real estate value chain have to deliver on a new set of principles driven by real returns, sustainability, resilience and affordability.

 

This year’s API Summit theme, Africa’s Re-Set, will examine how sustainable returns, ESG principles, new market dynamics and urbanization are driving future strategy and defining occupier demand, buyer pool, liquidity, and overall access to capital.
