Why API

30 SEPTEMBER – 01 OCTOBER 2020, SANDTON CONVENTION CENTRE, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

Over the past ten years, the African Property Investment (API) Summit has helped formalise Africa’s emerging real estate markets. During this period; the investment case on the continent has evolved and today, Africa’s divergent markets require dynamic and inspired business strategies that prioritize affordability, future demand, sustainability and inclusive economic growth. As we move into the next cycle of development, this year’s conference theme:

Africa RE-Inspired, will reveal:

 

  • How Africa’s real estate markets have formalised over the last decade;
  • How global real estate trends will impact its future; and
  • How the African real estate investment case compares to other emerging markets.

 

In such a dynamic environment, the summit programme will focus on achieving the following key objectives:

 

  • Delivering on affordable and sustainable real estate projects in Africa
  • Developing long-term and sustainable African real estate business strategies
  • Attracting fresh regional and global capital for African Property
  • Improving asset performance and mitigating against future emerging market risks
  • Solidifying the value of the built environment sector as a key driver in achieving economic growth
