The highly-anticipated biennial SA REIT Conference is a masterclass with exclusive access to local and global property insight. It's compact, one-day format makes it the ideal opportunity for our sector's leaders to round out their knowledge with an enriched understanding of changing marketplace demands.
Disruption and uncertainty in domestic markets are making it increasingly challenging for SA REITs to outperform and are complicating management teams' strategic decision-making processes.
South Africa's political economy is volatile as we head towards the ANC's National Elective Conference in December, and it is unclear if its outcome will provide the political, policy, and economic certainty needed to improve confidence in 2018.
Ubiquitous domestic uncertainty is playing a decisive role in the future of South Africa's REITs. Offshore exposure in the FTSE/JSE SAPY Index now stands at around 40%, covering some 25 countries, mostly in Eastern and Western Europe.
With local challenges driving an increasingly international mindset for the sector, the third SA REIT Conference, sponsored by Nedbank CIB, will once again arm delegates with invaluable perspectives on immediate and future influences, trends, opportunities, challenges and innovations – locally and globally.
Jaap L. Tonckens, Unibail-Rodamco CFO, who is responsible for overseeing the investments of one of Europe's largest shopping centre owners, will be the headline speaker at the event. The gathering will also offer a full programme of pertinent topics delivered by the sharpest minds in their fields.
Previous SA REIT Conferences have highlighted the value and importance of both executive leaders and non-executive directors attending gatherings of meaningful significance for the sector.
There are limited seats available for the SA REIT Conference, and we suggest that you secure your place early to avoid disappointment.
The SA REIT Conference 2018 takes place on 15 March 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre. The cost per delegate is R 5 500 excluding vat, and you can register by clicking here.
