Though a Nigerian brand, the Abuja housing show has always been praised for its international touch — attracting industry professionals from different countries to invest in the Nigerian real estate, housing and construction sectors.
So far, it is the only show with the blessing and acceptance from all government owned housing agencies, regulatory bodies and leading brands in the Nigerian housing sector. A legitimacy that has constantly drawn credible partnerships to the show over the years.
In the last 13 years of the show, it has featured top government officials like Vice Presidents, Governors, Ministers and many more influential participants from over 20 countries.
The show has always served as a great economic stimulant, especially in its host city, Abuja, where hotels, printing coys, transporters and logistics companies have always enjoyed great patronage during the show. The show is an economy of its own, not to mention the investment impact that continues even when it is done.
The Abuja International Housing Show is different because it is not a talk show platform, but a network of big businesses, opportunities and innovations.
Regular participants take advantage of the show because there is hardly any other show where they can network with as many stakeholders, clients and investors, and be able to showcase their products and ideas, and equally make great sales.
Those who are also looking to owning their own homes, especially at discounted rates have always seen this show as their desired destination. Contractors also use the show as an opportunity to interact with government officials and private sector leaders to sell their vision and strike good deals.
There is always a lot to learn at the AIHS especially from the panels, breakout sessions and testimonials about the current industry trends, how to create a bigger and beneficial industry, how to create accessible mortgages and tackle the challenges affecting housing demand and supply.
The difference with AIHS is the opportunities that it creates for everyone. From those in government looking for new ideas, to industry stakeholders looking for new opportunities, to investors looking for the best ideas and businesses, to companies looking for the biggest market, and to clients looking for the best deals, the Abuja International Housing Show has and will always be the best housing and construction platform for all.
One of this year’s most anticipated events in the Show is the CEO forum, which will be a convergence of industry leaders and ranking CEOs sharing their knowledge, experience and expertise on how to advance the housing and construction industry in an ever changing world of real estate and finance. It will be the first of its kind and most registered participants have indicated their enthusiasm about witnessing the CEO forum.
