The theme for the 2018 Conference is “Breaking the Mold – New Ideas for Financing Affordable Housing”. The conference will not only create awareness of the major challenges in developing or strengthening housing finance markets but will also focus squarely on solutions and resolution of these challenges by highlighting innovations, new ideas and global experiences in the sector.
The Global Housing Finance conference is an opportunity for policy makers, practitioners, NGOs and donors to gather, exchange views, learn about latest developments and to network.
The registration fee is US$1,000 per person, and covers all course materials, admission to seminar sessions and social events. Travel, accommodation, and other expenses are not included, and are the responsibility of each participant.
This year, the conference will take place over 2.5 days, in addition to preconference sessions scheduled for May 29, 2018. Preconference sessions are smaller, simultaneous sessions that provide an opportunity to delve deeper into selected topics and facilitate a broader discussion.
