East Africa’s leading real estate forum, the East Africa Property Investment (EAPI) Summit, will take place in Nairobi next week and will again feature the leading real estate development and investment companies.

The companies come from from 16 countries, including all the members of the East African Community (EAC). More than 300 delegates have already registered to attend the 2016 summit which will take place on Wednesday and Thursday.

The summit will also, for the first time, hold an accompanying trade exhibition, breakaway discussion sessions and a unique site-tour for delegates to view Africa’s third tallest building, Britam Tower, currently under construction in Nairobi’s Upper Hill district.

This year’s summit will discuss real estate opportunities and future potential as East Africa emerges as the fastest growing region on the continent, with its growth accelerating from 5.6 per cent last year to a forecast 6.7 per cent in 2016.

The summit will also cover real estate financing options, the East African REIT (real estate investment trust) model, including insight on both the I-REIT and D-REIT, the East African projects making headlines, the transformation of industrial property in East Africa, and the affordable housing challenge
