The 2019 Nigeria Real Estate Summit and Expo is set to provide the platform for stakeholders to discuss and find lasting solutions to housing challenges in the country, the organisers have said.
Over 100 leading Nigerian real estate companies and their counterparts from Ghana, South Africa, United Kingdom and UAE had indicated interest to participate, the head of the organising committee, Steve Ike, said.
Ike, in a statement on Monday, explained that the expo, otherwise known as NIRESE, would be one of the most important events in the country’s real estate calendar and would be held in Lagos on July 18.
According to him, the 2019 summit with the theme, ‘Collaborating to achieve sustainable funding for adequate and affordable housing in Nigeria’, is positioned to deepen ongoing discussions, stimulate measurable actions and provide the most inclusive and sweeping answers to the housing finance issues in Nigeria.
He said, “The Nigeria Real Estate Summit and Expo is expected to gather the most influential real estate players, industry professionals and policymakers for a full day of expert-led conferences and tailored networking events to learn, share, discuss and chart a new path for the Nigerian real estate industry.

“Stakeholders, during the sessions, would deliberate on five key issues namely land, infrastructure, housing finance, policy and strategy, and technology. The summit will cover current burning issues affecting the industry. These will include challenges associated with fluctuations in the economy which, in turn, contribute to cycles of sensitive developments in real estate.”
Ike stated that to address the impact of the geopolitical, economic and societal challenges facing the real estate industry and create new sources of growth, stakeholders needed to adapt and rethink their strategies by collaborating with fellow players and creating new forms of philosophies.
He said the expo had been designed to offer insights, inspiration and solution-oriented tools to turn the philosophies into actions.
