Independent HOME Property Summit & Expo in Durban in September is set to be a premier event for real estate industry

The key objective of the Independent HOME Property Summit & Expo – to be held at the Durban International Convention Centre on September 28 and 29 – is to establish a platform where stakeholders can connect, build brand awareness and gain insight into the challenges and developments affecting the industry.

Greg le Roux, group executive of Independent Media Events, says: “The summit’s goal is to foster a positive environment for collaboration and change between a spectrum of stakeholders. This will in turn lead to development and investment.

“The event will have representation from every sector of the industry, including realtors, developers, investors, key policy makers, industry experts and analysts and specialist IT professionals.”

The programme will feature keynote speakers on a range of topics from local market forecasts and the impact of technology to transformation initiatives and the increasing importance of green building.

Speakers will include Ewrin Rode, chairman and chief executive of Rode Property Consultants, who will present a long-term view of the property market; Vuyiswa Mutshekwane, chief executive of the South African Institute of Black Property Practitioners, who will talk about transformation requirements in the sector; and FNB property analyst John Loos.

Members of the Estate Agents Advisory Board will unpack amendments to various property laws and the legal reviews covering an array of property-related matters.

Warren Brewis, chief executive of IMS Property, said: “As the most comprehensive weekly property publication in KwaZulu-Natal, the Independent Home Magazine is proud to be part of an event that facilitates the thoughts, plans and projects that will affect the property industry, not only in KZN, but the whole of South Africa in the years to come.”

In addition to the conference, Independent HOME is also hosting a three-day expo within the popular Essence festival (expected to draw
60 000 visitors) from September 29 to October 1.
