AFRES targets African real estate market
In furtherance of its mission of providing a one-stop shop for the real estate market in Africa, the African Real Estate Society (AfRES) will hold its 18th annual conference in Abeokuta, Ogun state.
Chairman of the West African chapter of the body, Mr. Adekunle Awolaja, an Estate Surveyor, said the theme of the conference beginning tomorrow is ‘Integrating African Real Estate Market- An Agenda.’
Awolaja, who briefed newsmen in Lagos alongside members of the organising committee, Akin Olawore and Tayo Odunsi, said the event is being organized with the support and collaboration of the Nigerian institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers, Dangote Cement, Henly Business school, Ogun state government amongst others.
He stressed that the choice of the theme was borne out of the conviction that Africans need to learn from each other; hence speakers and attendees were drawn from all over Africa and other parts of the world.
Awolaja stressed that the event was strategically taken to Abeokuta to showcase real estate development in that area as well as to permit a technical tour to Dangote Cement plant at Ibeshe, which is a symbol of African integration by the reason of its plants in parts of Africa.
Participants and delegates expected at the conference, he said include real estate developers, investors, researchers and academics all over the world including users of real estate services.
Also, Olawore, who is the chairman of AfRES Central Planning Committee, said the event provides an avenue for showcasing latest development in Africa real estate sector.

The event, he said offers opportunity for Nigerians to learn from other African real estate market in terms of land titles, coding and in REIT.
