A look at lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional events for your di­ary and in­for­ma­tion

The African Real Es­tate and In­fra­struc­ture Sum­mit is a high-level con­fer­ence which brings to­gether more than 150 key de­ci­sion-mak­ers, in both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors, to dis­cuss Africa's rapid ur­ban­i­sa­tion chal­lenges and the devel­op­ment of fu­ture African cities.

The con­fer­ence will fo­cus on four key pil­lars – ur­ban devel­op­ment, mo­bil­ity and tech­nol­ogy, hous­ing, and fi­nance and in­vest­ment.

The sum­mit takes place un­der the theme “Devel­op­ing Fu­ture Cities” and will aim to an­swer ques­tions such as:

• How do African cities de­velop to be sus­tain­able, re­silient, in­clu­sive cen­tres of eco­nomic growth?

• Africa’s ur­ban pop­u­la­tion is the fastest grow­ing glob­ally. Can this be trans­lated into eco­nomic growth and

devel­op­ment?

• How to fos­ter a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing be­tween the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors to cre­ate more func­tional cities? • What are the im­pacts of trans­port avail­abil­ity on real es­tate pric­ing and de­mand?

• How to im­prove the qual­ity of life for African cit­i­zens in ur­ban ar­eas?

The sum­mit will take place at the Sand­ton Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in Jo­han­nes­burg from 25 – 26 October 2017.
