Africa Proptech Forum

The Africa Proptech Forum is the only pan-Africa Proptech Summit, which gathers decision makers from the tech and formal real estate sectors and takes place at the Marriott Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 11 October 2023.

The annual APF, Africa’s Premier technology event, will be held in Johannesburg, offering in-person and virtual attendance options. This remarkable gathering coincides with the API Summit, the foremost real estate gathering in Africa, creating an exceptional opportunity for professionals in both technology and real estate industries to connect and collaborate.

Following a period of transformation, Africa’s real estate industry has reached a more advanced stage, witnessing the emergence of sector and regional leaders. Through years of dedicated, long-term strategies, successful participants have achieved tangible returns and growth, demonstrating their ability to navigate challenges posed by macroeconomics, inflation, interest rates, and currency fluctuations.

Although geopolitical tensions may persist intermittently, Africa’s resurgent developers now have the opportunity to shape their development agenda. This is made possible by the emergence of new sources of capital, which support evolving demand patterns driven by affordability, occupier requirements, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations, and the influx of new investments. In the coming years, developers and investors who maintain their focus will be able to generate sustainable returns and achieve their desired yield targets in this new era. This year’s API Summit Theme, A New Horizon, will provide the tools for leaders invested in African real estate to navigate and thrive in this new period.
