Over 400 exhibitors and 20, 000 participants have indicated interest to attend this year’s Abuja International Housing Show, the organiser has said.
The organising firm, Fesadeb Communications Limited, said expectations for this year’s edition were very high as local and international exhibitors had confirmed attendance and readiness to showcase their latest products and innovations to their clients and buyers.
According to the firm, as an international event, participants will cut across at least 15 countries including the United States, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, India and China and there will be a high level delegation of international diplomats and foreign ministers of works and housing, including Ghana’s Samuel Atta Akyea.
“Abuja International Housing Show is not just a business and investment event, it is also a choice destination for those seeking relevant and up-to-date information about housing, construction, mortgage, investments and real estate management,” the firm said in statement.
It added that there would be at least 30 local and international speakers who would be sharing their knowledge and experience around this year’s theme of ‘Driving sustainable housing finance models in the midst of global uncertainty —a testament to how it continues to be an invaluable experience for building professionals in Nigeria and across the globe.’
The Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, is expected to declare the show open, according to the firm.
“The highly anticipated event will hold between July 23 and 26, 2019 in Abuja and participants are guaranteed to witness elite conferences and special sessions such as the CEO Forum, Housing Finance and PropTech Conferences, Not Too Young to Own a Home and the Women in Housing Convention, among others,” the firm said.
It explained that notable among the international speakers would be Lew Shulman, Debra Erb, Kecia Rust, Anders Lindquist and Robert Hornsby, whose impact in the global housing environment were immeasurable.
