Why attend SPACE?   

The real estate sector is booming across Africa, 80% of buildings that will exist in 2050 have yet to be built which presents a tremendous opportunity for real estate investment & professionals. Here are a few reasons to attend SPACE:

  • SPACE, is a two day business conference focusing on efficient build investment, securing finance and balancing the costs and benefits of development design and engineering, efficiently. 
  • It is an event for real estate investment professionals, owners, and developers to explore the ROI of efficient buildings through maximising building design, energy, water and waste management. 
  • Through interactive sessions, exhibition areas, networking and knowledge sharing, SPACE provides industry leaders the relevant information on the benefits of value engineering, how to obtain finance for quality and efficient developments and to conduct deals across the African continent

Please join us in March to open up new investment opportunities and learn about the options of maximising your portfolio.
