RICS is a global professional body. We promote and enforce the highest professional qualification and standards in the development and management of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.
Our name promises the consistent delivery of standards – bringing confidence to the markets we serve. The work of our professionals creates a safer world: we are proud or our profession’s reputation and we guard it fiercely.

This summit will look at connectivity and smart urbanism. High level speakers from leading organisations will advance the debate on how built environment professionals can contribute to key issues such as inclusive growth and sustainable development in Africa; they will analyse what role city leaders, innovators and businesses should play in finding sustainable solutions to the continent’s power deficit and how new technologies can impact. Sessions will explore how effective approaches to facilities management can streamline the operation of built assets, save on resource, enhance employee health and wellbeing, mitigate business risk and lower costs.

Building on the successes of the last three Africa Summits, this year’s event continues to be a collaboration of property institutions and associations across Africa, working together to accelerate the professionalism of the land, construction and property sectors throughout the continent. The Summit is designed for Presidents, Chairmen and CEOs, providing a forum where common goals and a shared vision can be created through consensus and discussion.
