While Africa investor and developer understanding has matured over the past decade, the acceleration of pre-Covid-19 structural trends has emphasized the need to build resilience into real estate projects and assets; shifted capital toward opportunities within emerging sub sectors, and highlighted the importance of innovation through the use of technology and space as a service. 

 

In such an environment, this year’s theme, Resilience, Opportunity & Innovation (ROI), will reveal how Africa’s real estate decision makers can build for the future by answering the following questions:

 

• What are the short, mid and long-term impacts of the pandemic on African Real Estate?
• How can investors and developers build more resilience into their African real estate projects and strategies?
• How will asset classes respond to new levels of supply and to new types of demand?
• How can the industry accelerate the adoption and adaptation of space as a service and technology in African real estate?
• What opportunities will the acceleration of structural trends present for investors and developers going into the future?
