The second Africa Real Estate Conference and Expo (ARCE 2022) has been launched in Accra under the theme: The Role of Real Estate and Infrastructure in Achieving Sustainable Goals.
The vision and goal for ARCE is to develop the real estate industry in Ghana and Africa through good policy advocacy, stakeholder collaborations, sustainability, adopting technologies in housing and infrastructure, etc being the biggest and impactful industry driven conference for the development of real estate in Africa.
The five-day conference which would be held from Monday, September 12 to Friday, September 16, 2022, is an initiative led by the Ghana Real Estate Professionals Association (GREPA) in close collaborations with its international certification partners.
Since real estate is a key driver of national development and also an industry that brings together many other industries and professionals, the event which would be held at the Labadi Beach Hotel, is expected to bring together many industry players, policy makers, professionals, experts, and investors among others, in the real estate value chain and attract stakeholders and dignitaries across Africa, the Americas and Europe.
This upcoming ARCE conference follows the successful organization of the maiden edition which was held in October last year, under the theme: opportunity to innovate and optimize.
Speaking at the Launch of the conference, the Chairman of the ARCE Planning Committee, Mr. Manuel Tawia indicated that, “the conference is expected to host and bring together over 200 companies both locally and internationally, over 100 renowned professionals and investors globally, about 3000 participants (in person and online).”
He further indicated that, “There shall be local and international speakers to discuss and speak on relevant and specific key topics for the growth and development of real estate in Ghana and Africa.
“The impact is expected to be phenomenal as many professionals and investors will have the opportunity to learn new things to scale up their businesses and network with relevant stakeholders.”
Mr. Tawiah also explained that three of the five-day conference will feature educational training with international certifications from their international partners. Some of the trainings will take place before and after the main conference. These would include:
- CERTIFIED INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY SPECIALIST (CIPS) by the National Association of Realtors (NAR)
- NAR GREEN CERTIFICATION
- CERITIFIED PROPERTY MANAGER (CPM) by Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM)
In recognition of the efforts of some of the people in the real estate industry over the years, the last day of the conference has been reserved as an awards night to honour specific industry players, who have played key and sacrificial roles to bring real estate and infrastructure to this level in the country.
