Annual Sapoa convention coming up in May

The South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) Convention will take place this year in Durban, presenting an opportunity for local and international property professionals and practitioners to discuss the latest trends and investment opportunities as well as challenges for the industry.

The theme for the 2015 convention is “The REAL in Real Estate”, says Sapoa chief executive, Neil Gopal.

“Sapoa’s 46th annual international convention and property exhibition made a difference and illustrated the power, the passion, and the unconditional heart of the SA property industry. The 2015 convention aims to extend this theme and showcase the true grit of the sector’s property, people, purpose and passion,” he says.

“Apart from the insightful and up-to-date content, the number of delegates attending the convention continues to increase – a sign that the event is receiving more attention each year.”

In the face of global economic uncertainty, the convention will provide the perfect platform for commercial players to gain knowledge on how best they can diversity and strengthen their portfolios.

Once again, Eusebius McKaiser will be master of ceremonies, and 2015’s speaker line-up will delve into the latest trends and development in the property arena.

“We trust that the many issues raised, discussed and debated, as well as our well-informed speakers views and opinions will be a great value-add to delegates’ experience at this event,” says Gopal.

The 47th Annual Sapoa International Convention and Property Exhibition will take place at the Durban International Convention Centre from May 19 to 21.
