SAPOA welcomes you, the passionate players of South Africa's thriving and vibrant property sector, to the coveted Annual SAPOA International Convention and Property Exhibition.
It's that time again when the entire property industry meets under one roof for the highly anticipated SAPOA Convention which will be hosted in the City of Durban at the Durban International Convention Centre from 19 to 21 May 2015.
SAPOA's 46th Annual International Convention and Property Exhibition not only made a difference but illustrated the power, the passion, and the unconditional heart of the South African property industry. The 2015 Convention aims to extend onto this and showcase the REAL in real estate.
Themed 'The REAL in Real Estate', 2015's Convention will not address the latest trends, challenges and prospects in the sector, but will also highlight and showcase the sheer hard work, the raw talent and the sterling achievements that encompasses the South African real estate industry on a daily basis - it's about property, people, purpose and most importantly, passion.
Regarded as South Africa's premier property conference of the year, the Convention will once again present an exceptional opportunity for both local and international property professionals and practitioners to amalgamate in the discussion of the latest trends and investment opportunities as well as challenges.
In the face of global economic uncertainty, the Convention will provide the perfect platform for commercial players to gain knowledge regarding how best they can diversity and strengthen their portfolios. Without a doubt, 2015's speaker line-up will delve into the latest trends and development in the property arena.
Once again the industry anticipates the 'Oscars of the property industry' - the Innovative Excellence Awards will yet again recognise the country's top buildings in terms of innovation, aesthetic appeal, sustainability, creativity, as well as game-changing architectural concepts.
The property industry's journalists will also be recognised via the annual Property Journalism Awards. The awards highlight the outstanding contributions not only made to journalism, but also to the commercial and industrial property sector in South Africa. SAPOA has seen entries increase over the past year or so - an indication of the growing interest, scope and coverage of the South African property industry.
The social side of convention is always a great touch. The Property Exhibition hall is a must for making the most profitable business connections as well as for networking and meeting up with old colleagues.
Social events not to be missed include the Convention golf day as well as the tours around the City of Durban. Then of course there's the sell-out Convention wrap-up party which sees up to 1000 delegates attending year-on-year.
As the annual Convention edges nearer towards the big 5-0, the event continues to remain relevant with the Convention's fresh and newsworthy speaker and topic line-up. Apart from the insightful and up-to-date content, the delegate attendance of the Convention continues to increase - a sign that the event is receiving more attention year-on-year.
SAPOA would like to extend a warm hand of thanks to all its sponsors as well as the SAPOA Executive Board and staff who make this annual event a major success. SAPOA hopes that you enjoy the Convention as well as the City of Durban, wishing all delegates a delightful and insightful event.
