The Africa Summit of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has entrenched itself as an annual event and will reconvene for the fourth consecutive year in Sandton Central, Johannesburg, in May.

It moves to a new venue and date this year, taking place at Sun International’s Maslow Hotel from 30-31 May. Growing in stature as a must-attend event for senior executives and professionals in the built environment sector on the African continent, the summit brings together business and thought leaders, policy makers and other key influencers.

Heavyweight sponsors Broll Property Group, Cushman & Wakefield Excellerate and Colliers International are backing this year’s RICS Africa Summit.

London‐based RICS is a global professional body that promotes and enforces the highest qualifications and standards in the areas of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. As a public benefit organisation, it operates in all the world’s major financial hubs in delivering international standards and policy influence.

RICS’ Country Manager for South Africa, TC Chetty said: “The Africa Summit is RICS’ major annual event on the continent, highlighting the organisation’s commitment and confidence in Africa.

As one of the events on the global RICS calendar, this year’s summit will follow the RICS World Built Environment Forum that takes place in London in April.”

He adds: “The 2018 edition of the RICS Africa Summit will have a renewed focus on urbanisation, taking a closer look at smart urbanism and sustainability.

We are expecting more than 200 professionals, business and government leaders to attend the two-day event, as we build on our collaborative efforts with property institutions and associations across Africa.

We want to work together to accelerate the professionalism of land, construction and property sectors on the continent, ultimately contributing to Africa’s growth and infrastructure development.”

Confirmed speakers and participants in the summit include John Hughes, President of RICS; Adeniyi Adeleye, Head Real Estate Finance – West Africa at Stanbic IBTC Capital and Stephen Ola Jagun, Managing Partner at Jagun Associates, amongst others.
