Opportunity to Learn More

Learning does not end after getting a job – in fact, it begins from there. The working class is a very competitive environment, and for anyone in that class to remain relevant and have competitive advantage over their peers, the only way to do that is to open themselves to opportunities of learning.

According to several statistics, working class people who regularly take out time to learn more about their profession tend to do better than those who refuse to take such initiatives.

The Abuja International Housing Show is aware that such opportunities for learning are very few in Nigeria. And that is why it considers this responsibility of providing more education for the working class a very important one. A lot of workers in Nigeria have limited opportunities to such platforms that can refine their career knowledge in order to catch up with evolving global best practices.

At this year’s show, there will be over 30 international speakers and career advisors available to help in mentoring and equipping working class and aspiring working class people for a very dynamic work environment as we know it today.

The Abuja International Housing Show has been widely recognized for being a marketplace of information because the Show recognises that the most potent resource of the 21st century and especially in the Housing and Career Sector is information. Things change quickly, and only those who can keep up will be able to compete and stay relevant in the industry and work environment.

The free access to career information has always been one of the most important benefits for workers who attend the AIHS.

Workers who attend the show will learn vital things like how they can improve their work; how they can position themselves for their works to be seen and recognized; how they can keep up with global trends in their careers; how they can do things differently from others in order to stand out; how they can leverage on professional networks; how they can identify the next career opportunities among others.

That will greatly serve not only as an inspiration for the working and aspiring working class people, but a guide to leading a progressive career life.

Opportunity for Professional Networking

One of the most important opportunities for any career person to move to the next level of their career is through professional networking. Sadly, opportunities for professional networking are few. But the Abuja International Housing Show has been able to create a free platform for that to happen.

Affordable Home Ownership Opportunity

There are a lot of career people whose current income cannot enable them own their own homes. The Abuja International Housing Show presents opportunities for such people to have access to the most affordable home ownership schemes available in the market, as well as mortgages that are very flexible and cheap.

This year’s show will feature over 100 real estate developers, who are offering low income houses as well as luxury homes, and a lot of mortgage banks as well who will be marketing their packages. The availability of these multiple options will help you decide which is best for you, and everyone knows that in such case when supply is high, the prices will be considerably low and affordable. So, it is more like once in a blue moon opportunity to own your own home.

Opportunity for Making Money

Opportunities for Cheap Bargains

With over 400 product exhibitors, 100+ homes interior companies, commercial and mortgage banks selling all sorts of housing and construction products, including latest innovations in related areas, participants will have opportunity to make purchases at unbeatable prices.

Many participants choose to attend the Show because of its wide display of products at unbeatable rates. The show offers opportunities to make direct purchases at discounted rates.

The Show has helped reduce the cost of home acquisition because it demands the participating mortgage banks and estate developers to sell their products at much discounted event-rates, which is usually the case. As a result, a lot of people come to the Show without a home, but eventually leave with one because the deals are usually too good to be rejected.

The Show has overtime helped people expose themselves and their organizations to new options of housing financing.

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.

The opportunities for working class people in such an environment cannot be overstated. As we have seen, there are enormous opportunities, and it will be wise not to miss them for anything because sometimes the difference between failure and success is the decision to grab an opportunity like this
