AIHS 2020: 85 Companies Confirm Participation In The Show’s Virtual Conference, Exhibition

The organizers of Africa’s largest housing and construction event – Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) – have announced that 85 companies have already booked their places in the show’s 14th edition slated for July.

The organisers have earlier revealed that this year’s edition will be virtual, and that the interesting elements that makes it the biggest housing stakeholders’ event on the continent will be retained.

A virtual edition became important because of the current global scourge of the novel coronavirus which has made physical distancing inevitable. Though in their 14th year, this year’s show will be the first virtual edition. However, the demand for participation in the show is still very high.

In their most recent release, the show’s organisers confirm that the 85 companies already set for participation are drawn from real estate, building technology, home interiors, mortgage banking, housing finance among others.

Among these companies include AIHS’s traditional partners and supporters, as well as new entrants.

According to their statement signed by the Show’s CEO, Festus Adebayo, the Nigeria Institute of Town Planners, Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN) and Association of Housing Corporations of Nigeria are the first set of professional institutions to confirm participation.

Also for maximum impact, the Nigerian Senate Committee on Housing have been announced as partners and co-organizers of the 14th AIHS. This will come as cheering news for housing sector stakeholders who constantly harp on the need for legislative involvement in the show known for advising the government about housing sector policies.

The show confirms that the speakers that had earlier been announced to speak at the show since January will also be available to speak during this virtual edition.

For participating companies and brands, the cost implication of participation in the virtual edition is lesser than the cost earlier announced for the physical edition even though the virtual edition is very likely to offer them better value.

Unlike the physical edition where participation of some global partners are hindered by travel issues, the virtual edition will be larger because more partners, local and international will be able to be at the show from wherever they are in the world.

This is even a greater opportunity for brands and companies to introduce, promote and sell their products to a bigger market, at less cost and from the comfort of their factories or offices.

The 4 day event will as usual offer unique privileges for companies and brands to interact with a niche market where they can exhibit, make sales and strike new deals and clients.

The opening ceremony on a soon to be announced date will feature participants from not less than 15 countries including USA, UK, China, Turkey, India, UAE, Morocco, South Africa, Ghana, Liberia, Kenya and many more.

As known to many, AIHS has become an all-important convergence of local and international stakeholders, speakers, and exhibitors in the housing and construction industry.

The show plays host to important dignitaries like Yemi Osinbajo, Debra Erb, Babatunde Fashola, former presidents, governors, ministers and national assembly members and numerous corporate executives. The virtual edition in July this year will not be any different, but will in fact even host more international dignitaries, as it will be easier for those who couldn’t have attended a physical edition to participate in the virtual edition.

Given that AIHS hosts over 40, 000 participants from at least 20 countries every year, the show remains the prime destination for multinational and national corporations, businesses and executives, public officials, and home seekers to converge, dialogue, network, exhibit and learn from one another about opportunities they should tap into.

The housing sector has benefitted immensely from the show as many corporations have signed ground breaking agreements at the show to provide home ownership opportunities for millions of Nigerians. Over 10, 000 homes have been built as a result of these partnerships enabled by AIHS.

As the show that offers the largest market for housing and construction companies in Africa, there are over 400 product exhibitors every year with unique and innovative solutions from over 20 countries.

The show’s policy advocacy sessions has led to the establishment of several housing sector policies including Land Geographical Information System (LGIS) in almost all states in Nigeria, as well as the establishment of state ministries of housing.

Some of the show’s notable and ever increasing partners include Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, National Assembly Committees on Housing, Echostone International, Cosgrove, American Home Builders of West Africa, AUHF, Affordable Housing Institute, Mixta Africa, Dangote cement, OPIC, Urban shelter, Brain & Hammers, Infinity Mortgage, COPEN Group, Shelter Afrique, IMF, World Bank, Royal Ceramics, AFP Furniture (Julius Berger), ABUMET, Costrimix, Wiser estates, IFC Edge building, Family Homes Funds, NMRC, FMBN, FCDA, Eximia Realty, Oct 5 real estate, Haven Homes, Alaro city, Revolution Plus, REDAN, MBAN, Platinum Mortgage, First Trust Mortgage, Association of Housing Corporation, Wallpaper World, iBuild, Hydroform International, Landmark Africa, Adrano property, Netconstruct limited, Jedo investments, Leisure court, Nedcomoaks, Window story, Modern shelters limited among other prominent partners.

Some of the show’s well anticipated and attended special sessions are ones like the CEOs Forum, Financial Conference, Not Too Young To Own a Home Session, Women in Housing Session, Alternative Finance Session etc. AIHS is indeed a one-stop event for multi-industry issues involving both government and private stakeholders, investors and esteemed participants.

The show is one that is always well covered by the media, offering more opportunity for exhibitors and speakers to be heard even outside the show, and this year will be no different.

Most importantly, according to Adebayo, AIHS remains the leading promoter of affordable housing in Africa, and looks forward to the unique experiences that will be offered participants during this year’s first virtual edition in July.

In spite of this virtual edition, the organizers are still hoping that the physical event will hold from 16th to 19th , November 2020.

The organizers say that they are strongly in support of all actions towards the safety of people. As a result, they call on all stakeholders in the housing industry to stay safe and remain compliant to all safety precautions.

AIHS to Hold a Virtual 14th Edition in July Dates, Reveals Unique Opportunities for Participants

The organizers of Africa’s largest housing and construction event – Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) – has announced that the 14th edition of the annual show will go ahead in July 2020. However, unlike the previous editions, this year’s will be the first virtual edition.

In a statement signed by AIHS Chief Executive, Festus Adebayo, this is important given the current state of global affairs. The unfortunate spread of the novel coronavirus has, according to Adebayo, led to a strategic adjustment, while doing everything possible to still meet the needs of the show’s participants.

‘’As a show committed to human development and as a responsible platform, we are abiding by the current global safety measures that limits the spread and dangers of covid-19 through social distancing and isolation. As known to many, AIHS has become an all-important convergence of local and international stakeholders, speakers, and exhibitors in the housing and construction industry. This will make it a hot zone for the spread of the virus should we go ahead with the physical edition as we have done successfully for the past 13 years,’’ the statement read in part.

The organizers say that they are strongly in support of all actions towards the safety of people. As a result, they call on all stakeholders in the housing industry to stay safe and remain compliant to all safety precautions.

The show will however go on online, and the supposed July date will be announced in due course to prepare the minds of participants and enable them adjust accordingly.

Clarifying further on the need for this decision, the statement emphasized that, ‘’the show is largely dependent on the participation of everyone and it is impossible for that to happen if such participants are not healthy or alive. AIHS has grown to become a show for all. The bound of our stakeholders have expanded greatly, both in the public and private sectors, hence the need to be aware of such realities and take responsible actions that wouldn’t jeopardize our integrity, but maintain our standards and also embrace the opportunity to evolve in the digital world as we find ourselves today. The present situation in the world calls for new strategies and innovations that will meet the expectations and needs of our numerous clients.

‘’A digital AIHS is perhaps an opportunity for us all to become familiar with a future that is inevitable. With the advancement of technology, it will become a norm, and not a rarity to witness more shows like AIHS go fully digital, while maintaining its values, relevance, impact and stakeholders.’’

According to the organizers of the show which has hosted important dignitaries like Yemi Osinbajo, Debra Erb, Babatunde Fashola, former presidents, governors, ministers and national assembly members and numerous corporate executives, the virtual edition in July this year will not be any different, but will in fact even host more international dignitaries, as it will be easier for those who couldn’t have attended a physical edition to participate in the virtual edition from the comfort of their homes.

‘’This edition will most likely have more important dignitaries than we have ever seen because of the ease of participating in a virtual conference. Without any need to travel across continents, our speakers will find it quite interesting to reach out to audiences from all wherever they are,’’ the statement said.

The organizers are assuring everyone that their international partners and exhibitors have confirmed their readiness for the virtual edition in July.

According to them, it will be rewarding for all because their current strategy considers a situation that will still enable exhibitors and brands to as always capitalize on the platform to showcase their innovative products, make sales and connect digitally with old and new customers and clients.

A full announcement of the entire process will, according to the organizers, be revealed soon. Brands and exhibitors will be duly informed about the unique opportunities for this year and how they can benefit from them.

Given that AIHS hosts over 40, 000 participants from at least 20 countries every year, the show remains the prime destination for multinational and national corporations, businesses and executives, public officials, and home seekers to converge, dialogue, network, exhibit and learn from one another about opportunities they should tap into.

AIHS has been described by many dignitaries as the home of innovation. The show according to Adebayo is constantly evolving, ever beating previous records and topping them with more exciting ideas, innovations and practices.

The housing sector has benefitted immensely from the show as many corporations have signed ground breaking agreements at the show to provide home ownership opportunities for millions of Nigerians. Over 10, 000 homes have been built as a result of these partnerships enabled by AIHS.

As the show that offers the largest market for housing and construction companies in Africa, there are over 400 product exhibitors every year with unique and innovative solutions. There have been representations from countries like USA, UK, China, India, UAE, Morocco, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya and many more.

Most importantly, according to Adebayo, AIHS remains the leading promoter of affordable housing in Africa, and looks forward to the unique experiences that will be offered participants during this year’s first virtual edition in July.

In spite of this virtual edition, the organizers are still hoping that the physical event will hold for in the 2nd week November 2020

How AIHS Can Take You and Your Company to the Next Level

Thinking of attending the Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) which comes up from 21st to 24th July 2020? There are countless reasons why you should! Attending the show will not only help you and your career, but also the company you work for. The benefits include opportunities to network, collaborate, gain knowledge, develop skills and prepare for the future.

Networking is one of the biggest benefits of attending the Abuja International Housing Show. Building relationships is easiest in person, and the show provides a great way to meet new people and catch up with those you already know. You have the opportunity to meet new customers or business partners and strengthen relationships with existing clients.

At the conference session, you can meet industry experts and leaders as well as professionals that face the same challenges as you. You might not realize it, but being around so many of your peers in a new environment can even renew your motivation. When you attend a huge event such as Abuja International Housing Show, which will host over 40,000 local and international visitors this year, the re-energizing effect is only magnified.

AIHS, the largest housing and construction show in Africa, offers the perfect environment for collaboration. Its visitors come from at least 20 countries, giving you the chance to meet people from diverse cultural backgrounds and view the industry from new perspectives. It’s crucial to take advantage of discussions with your contacts, because it gives you an opportunity to share your ideas and ask questions. You might even think of new ideas or encounter solutions you weren’t aware of.

By collaborating within your network and listening to industry experts, you can effectively develop your knowledge base. Try to find information about:
● New tools and equipment
● Current and upcoming technologies
● Useful techniques or processes
● Industry best practices and standards
● Changes within the industry
● Competitors’ strengths and weaknesses


You can then bring this information back to your company to improve your products, services or systems, and ultimately grow your business.
When you watch demonstrations, attend training sessions and visit exhibitor booths, you have the chance to sharpen your skills – or develop new ones! Make sure you take advantage of any training opportunities that are offered across the show floor.

This year, for example, AIHS will host a CEO Forum that will help industry stakeholders fashion out a better way to advance the industry as a team, including special conferences for the 4-day event. Informational sessions such as these help you strengthen your weakest areas and prepare to face future challenges.

Besides helping you and your company, the show can also help your career. You’ll be able to see the different paths that professionals – including you – can take in the industry. This will open you up to future possibilities and help you make educated decisions about your career path.

While attending the show offers many benefits, what you get out of it depends on what you make of it. If you attend as a passive observer, you might not make that many connections or retain much information. If you get actively involved and focus on what you can bring back to your company, attending the show will be a valuable experience.
