According to Ike, the summit and expo with the theme: “Collaborating, innovating and growing to achieve adequate and affordable housing delivery in Nigeria” is billed to deepen on-going discussions, stimulate measurable actions and provide the most inclusive and sweeping answers to the housing issues in Nigeria.
The Real Estate Summit and Expo will gather the most influential real estate players, industry professionals and policy makers for two days of expert-led conferences and tailored networking events to learn, share, discuss and chart a new path for the Nigerian real estate industry.
Stakeholders, during the sessions, would deliberate on five key issues namely land, infrastructure, housing finance, policy and strategy, and technology. The summit will cover current burning issues affecting the industry. Theses will include challenges associated with fluctuations in the economy which, in turn, contribute to cycles of sensitive developments in real estate. The Real Estate Summit will also analyze supply and demand as the local economy and growing population drives land expansion.
According to Ike, “to address the impact of the geopolitical, economic and societal challenges facing the real estate industry and create new sources of growth, stakeholders need to adapt and rethink their strategies by collaborating with fellow players and creating new forms of philosophies. The NIRESE Summit is designed to offer insights, inspiration and solution-oriented tools to turn these philosophies into actions”
Aside from the national conference, the summit will feature an exhibition show that will provide opportunity for property developers and other service providers in the industry to showcase existing housing stock, building materials and new construction technologies.
With an agenda structured around presentations in plenary and panel discussions, as well as a housing marketplace to support focused conversations between investors and projects, the summit will attract stakeholders from across the country, all with the express purpose of furthering investment in affordable housing.
The Summit will delve in detail into opportunities in Housing Delivery and will allow delegates to be wholly updated on the market by some of the most senior experts in the sector. The Summit will look at the roles and opportunities for all players in the market, including Investors, Developers, Financiers, Government, development agencies and their related advisers, whilst networking with the leading professionals in Housing from across the country.
The housing finance, a major discourse at the summit, will be structured around key subject matters ranging from the possibilities of public-private partnerships to unlocking hidden potentials, to the challenges of funding the mortgage portfolio, the opportunities to be found in rental housing and housing microfinance, and the strategies to address the challenge of affordability. Policy makers, investors, professionals in the built industry, banking institutions and the Capital Market players will form part of discussants at the summit”
