Welcoming a new dawn for Africa’s property market

Running for its eighth consecutive year, the influential and informative Africa Property Investment (API) Summit & Expo will be held this year at the Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton Central, on Thursday 24 and Friday 25th August 2017.
A new reality for the African real estate industry, which has faced with a number of geo-political and economic challenges over the last few years, is starting to emerge, and investors and developers have already started to look into how they can best redefine this new property landscape.
Kfir Rusin, Managing Director for API Events says: “Providing the industry with an opportunity to embrace this new reality, and create fresh avenues of growth, the API Summit & Expo provides stakeholders with the perfect platform to discuss key issues, while offering insights into how best to reinvent their strategies, realign their models and collaborate with new players in developing Africa’s future property market.”
Attracting a wide range of industry professionals, this year’s summit will include participation from over 35 countries, 600 delegates and 250 companies, connecting the continent’s most senior investors, developers, operators and industry professionals and providing them with infinite networking opportunities and a wide range of key discussions.
Special focus will be placed on sub-Saharan African countries such as Angola, Mozambique, Zambia, Botswana, Nigeria, Kenya and Cameroon, and their potential for growth in the coming years.
Hosted by the well-established API Events, the 2017 Africa API Summit & Expo will also feature a dedicated exhibition area where delegates can meet freely to discuss current trends, share industry experiences and enjoy insightful debates with some of Africa’s top real estate minds.
The main sponsor for the event is Broll Property Group which together with its African subsidiaries add value to countless investors and businesses throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Other key sponsors include ABSA, MaraDelta, Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate, Standard Bank, Crystal Lagoon, JLL, Profica, Landmark Africa, G5 Properties, RLB Pentad, and event partners Invest Africa, Sagaci Research Asoko Insights, Africa Union Housing Finance (AUHF) and the Association of SA Quantity Surveyors.
Rusin says: “This two day summit promises a wealth of industry-leading market intelligence, neatly packaged into a wide variety of key industry issues currently facing the African continent. We hope to unpack and address challenges, while celebrating and highlighting the many great strides made in building a better future for African real estate. With this summit we also want to encourage and inspire innovation and growth, turning Africa’s new reality into a wealth of opportunities and successes for us all.”
