Following the success of our inaugural dinner and conference, RICS Africa Summit 2016 conference will hold on February 24, 2016 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This year’s programme will have new topics covered through keynote sessions, panel discussions and innovative mini-breakouts that drill down into the most relevant topics across the land, built environment and property areas.

According to the organisers, “these sessions aim to share the needed content, ideas and thought leadership that will lift Africa’s market into an international investment haven. Discover how to grow and win business, deliver to your client’s expectation and ensure your credibility is maintained in the market.

“You will examine successful case-studies of business best practice, plus you can select from nine key topic options in small breakouts across the three areas. You will also have the chance to interact in panel discussions with leaders so you can jump ahead of competitors with sound market and economic knowledge.”
