With about 30 international speakers, 400 companies product exhibition and business opportunities running into billions of dollars, the AIHS is the target place for stakeholders, policy executives, business leaders, investors and clients to network and establish beneficial relationships.

The show is powered by leading Brand in housing communication,fesadeb Media Group and promoter of Housing Development advocacy network~Another excellent name in housing advocacy which they have been promoting in the last 25 years.

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.

Housing show to drive finance models – Convener

The Convener of the 13th Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) says the show will focus on driving sustainable housing finance models to achieve affordable houses.

Mr Festus Adebayo, Managing Director, FESADEB Media Group and the convener disclosed this in Abuja on Wednesday while speaking on the level of preparation for the forthcoming show.

The AIHS would feature more than 400 foreign and local exhibitors and 35,000 participants across 20 countries, scheduled for July 23 to July 26, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

The theme of the show is: “Driving Sustainable Housing Finance Models in the Midst of Global Uncertainties’’.

Adebayo said that the theme stemmed from the outlook of global economy that could tend toward another recession and the attendant impact such an event could have on Nigerian affordable market. “The likelihood of global recession is on the level of increase of global debt

“According to International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global debt has reached `an all time high’ of 184 trillion dollars in nominal terms. “In addition to the likelihood of recession is the rising level of global uncertainties,’’ he said.

This, he said, were fuelled by nationalistic sentiments such as the ongoing tussle between China and the United States of America and also between European Union and its member states like United Kingdom.

“Coupled with the current monetary tightening it is expected to increase in Europe and USA,’’ the convener said. The expert explained that the show had also introduced innovations in the 13th AIHS exhibition aspect that would give enough room for networking among participants.

“The second AIHS Chief Executive Officers forum will feature 100 high ranking CEOs of mortgage banks, real estate institutions and companies, construction companies’ professional bodies and international investment organisations.

“The international investor’s dinner will also feature delegations from Turkey, Rwanda, China and United Arab Emirate to deliberate on way to achieve affordable housing.”

On the successes recorded in the past by AIHS, Adebayo noted that its recommendations were taken and complied with by many states across the country.

“Our recommendations were well utilised in Osun where we now have a full-fledged mortgage bank owned by the state government.

“It is also working in many states including Niger state where the state is developing its mass city involving aggressive estate development to explore the opportunities of the population influx from Abuja.”

He expressed hope that the in-coming administration would do more in the area of housing to drive the country’s economy. “We are also aware that most houses have been delivered under the present government.

“But we are adamant that our focus in the 13th AIHS will be more on the area of affordability of these houses that government is building,’’ he said. (NAN)

The economic impact of the event on the Federal Capital Territory, cannot be overemphasised. From hotel patronage to patronage of restaurants and lounges, printing of materials, and spin-offs of various business during the event has added value to the federal capital Territory, since most of the participants are drawn from the 36 states of the federation and over 21 countries.

One of the voters called on the organisers of the show to commence hosting of one day training for representatives of exhibitors, as he observed that some of them did not show skill in following up some of the prospective clients. Another voter called on the government to be using the platform to launch programmes and policies on housing since the crowd in the annual show cannot be found in any other event in Nigeria.

Why Abuja International Housing Show Is The Most organized Show In Nigeria

Housing matters to economic development. It can not only boost economic performance and place competitiveness, but it can also lead to segregation and spatial concentrations of poverty.

The Government’s housing growth plans induces the opportunity to improve the use of housing as an enabler of economic growth, but housing policy will need to be more responsive to local economic development conditions. In the current downturn, ensuring new homes are delivered of the right type, in the right place, and linked to wider economic outcomes will be all the more important. If housing is treated as an isolated issue, future investment is unlikely to achieve either sustainable growth or the outcomes desired by the Government’s housing policies.


It is for the above reason that Abuja International Housing show is committed to bringing all stakeholders together with the goal of Implementing a more integrated response to housing and economic development in Nigeria.

The mission of the 12th Abuja International Housing show is to bring together housing practitioners, advocates and resources so that all Nigerians will have the opportunity to have quality affordable home and suitable living environment.
