The second annual BotsReal Property & Infrastructure Forum will provide delegates with the tools to create innovative strategies to deliver growth in the local and regional built environment. This year, we’re bringing together the region’s leading innovators and disruptors in real estate funding, tech and alternative asset classes to inspire, network and help you plug into one of Africa’s most robust real estate markets.
Agenda topics include:
With water and power concerns cited as two of the most pressing concerns for business leaders in Botswana; effective and innovative infrastructure development is an opportunity and challenge in the country; is the public sector addressing the issue and can the private sector get more involved? We also take a deep dive look at how the proposed multi-billion Pula railway projects will tilt the real estate investment landscape and create new investment nodes.
Innovating for new asset classes
How can Botswana’s real estate industry plug in and drive the development of world class facilities at attractively priced rentals as well as creating a market for alternative assets like data centres and assorted telecoms infrastructure needed to attract prospecting multinationals? Can Botswana outsmart other regional hubs like Kenya, Mauritius and SA, join us as we unpack the key trends, policies, opportunities and challenges in building a new future.
