Nigeria’s premier and most established housing show, The Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS), is set to host over 200 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) from varied companies and firms in the housing, construction and business industries across Africa and the world in July.
It will be the biggest convergence of such important figures sharing ideas, experience and expertise on how to lead a more effective and financially inclusive industry.
Registration for the 13th edition of the show which will hold this year from 23 July to 26 July has commenced and according to the event’s coordinator, Festus Adebayo, this edition will feature a CEO Forum on the first day (23 July) to tackle several challenges, especially the recurrent ones in the housing sector.
According to Adebayo, over 200 CEOs in the real estate, mortgage housing finance, construction companies and professional institutions will focus on macro-economic and socio-political environment and impact of real estate market.
“The forum which is a gathering of high profile professionals who are founders and business owners will give opportunity to present and discuss challenges facing their respective organisations and the way forward.
“It is a collaborative and supportive environment for leaders in Nigerian real estate industry support services and mortgage banks. Participating in the forum will increase high level business contact.’’
According to Adebayo, the forum will equally provide avenue for meeting counterparts from every parts of the country and outside the country on networking business relations.
With an ever changing world, it is indeed very timely to have all these top leaders converge for the sake of advancement. Various ideas and experiences from several places will greatly benefit the participants in forging more adaptable and effective models of operation.
Cross-fertilization of Information
The attending CEOs will proactively engage the show with first hand, authentic – not to mention relevant – information on a number of issues pertaining to the industry.
The most potent resource of the 21st century and especially in the Housing and Construction Sector is information. Things change quickly, and only those who can keep up will be able to compete and stay relevant in the industry.
Having access to veritable information has always been one of the most important benefits for stakeholders who attend the AIHS.
A major highlight of the event is the showcase of innovative developments in the housing industry, paper presentations from experts and leading names in the industry.
In addition, renowned experts will provide housing market forecasts and examine issues such as employment, home prices, production, demand and supply.
There will be break-out sessions led by the attending CEOs to address emerging issues during the course of the show with some definitive and specialised solutions. This will be of great benefit for the entire industry as such recommendations will be largely adopted in order to effectively grapple with industry challenges ranging from the provision of affordable housing, mortgage, quality control and policy directions.
The CEO forum will also be an opportunity for the promotion of new ideas, innovations and products looking for markets. It will also serve as a selection ground for those looking for ideas, businesses and products to invest in.
Clearly, there is no other platform in Nigeria that can bring together as many professionals, not only from housing, real estate and construction sectors, but also from government, investment, and capital markets to share their first-hand experience, knowledge and expertise on varied issues related directly or indirectly to housing and development.
