Why Abuja international housing show is a must attend for ALL major organizations in Africa Housing Industry

WhatsApp Image 2021 04 24 at 15.26.25

When the flagship Abuja International Housing Show (AIHS) took off over a decade ago, the expectations were high, and so were the standards – prompting both sceptics and interested stakeholders to wonder how such a show – a first of its kind – will be sustained. So far so good, the expectations were not only met but the show has absolutely carved a permanent niche for itself and for participants.

While other housing and construction events usually focus on a defined and sometimes limited agenda, the Abuja International Housing Show is a one-stop event for multi-industry issues involving both government and private stakeholders, investors and esteemed participants.

From government officials looking for informed opinion(s) on emerging housing and construction policy dynamics, to private sector developers and investors looking for the best clients, environments and opportunities for establishment, to customers looking for the best housing deals, mortgages, credit and whatever access they need, the Abuja International Housing Show has been the best and most established platform in Africa for such convergence.

Africa Housing News

The participants who attend from different parts of the world usually attest that the event does not only create awareness on the major challenges in developing or strengthening housing industry and finance markets but also focus extensively on solutions and resolution of these challenges by highlighting innovations, new ideas and global experiences in the sector.

What Makes AIHS A Must Attend for Stakeholders

The Abuja International Housing Show has and will always be an opportunity for policy makers, practitioners, NGOs and donors to gather, exchange views, learn about latest developments and to network.

The Abuja International Housing Show has the support and endorsement of the organizations and brands in charge of implementation of policies in the Nigerian housing sector. Over the years, the Abuja housing show has garnered the support of its partners drawn from the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, professional bodies among others.

The show attracts over 15,000 thousand participants and over 400 exhibitors from 21 countries. Abuja International Housing Show offers ideal conditions for visitors to initiate international property projects and helps to maintain and extend their network in the real estate sector.

More of the reasons that make the AIHS what it is are:

All Important AIHS CEO Forum

The event features an all-important CEOs Forum, which is a convergence of elite chief executives from Nigeria and across the world to devise the most effective solutions to challenges in the housing and construction industry.

According to the Show’s coordinator, Bar. Adebayo, over 200 CEOs in the real estate, mortgage housing finance, construction companies and professional institutions will focus on macro-economic and socio-political environment and impact of real estate market.

“The forum which is a gathering of high profile professionals who are founders and business owners will give opportunity to present and discuss challenges facing their respective organisations and the way forward.

“It is a collaborative and supportive environment for leaders in Nigerian real estate industry support services and mortgage banks. Participating in the forum will increase high level business contact.’’

According to Adebayo, the forum will equally provide avenue for meeting counterparts from every parts of the country and outside the country on networking business relations.

A Marketplace of Information

The most potent resource of the 21st century and especially in the Housing and Construction Sector is information. Things change quickly, and only those who can keep up will be able to compete and stay relevant in the industry.

Having access to veritable information has always been one of the most important benefits for stakeholders who attend the AIHS.

A major highlight of the event is the showcase of innovative developments in the housing industry, paper presentations from experts and leading names in the industry.

In addition, renowned experts will provide housing market forecasts and examine issues such as employment, home prices, production, demand and supply.

Clearly, there is no other platform in Nigeria that can bring together as many professionals, not only from housing, real estate and construction sectors, but also from government, investment, and capital markets to share their first-hand experience, knowledge and expertise on varied issues related directly or indirectly to housing and development.

High Calibre Attendance

The AIHS has always been a favourite stop for top guests from both government, professional bodies and private sectors. Top attendees over the years have included Vice-Presidents, Senate Presidents, State Governors, Ministers, National Assembly Members, Housing Related Agencies, World Bank Officials, IFC officials, AUHF officials, Shelter Afrique officials, OPIC executives, International Organisation Leaders, Bank and Industry CEOs, Real Estate Moguls, Business Executives, Donor Officers, Bustling Entrepreneurs among others.

There cannot be a better atmosphere for networking and strategic meetings to take place on a platter of gold. Successful stakeholders will always tell you how important the AIHS is to them and their business growth.

Opportunity to Introduce New Products and Meet the Right Buyers

The AIHS usually host many stands owned by several organisations and brands seeking to introduce their new products and ideas to prospective buyers, clients and investors. The registration platform provides opportunity slots for such brands to book in advance and reap the benefits that come with partnering with the largest Housing Show.

In past years, we have seen exhibition of contemporary-modern roof designs, furniture and new innovations in building technology.

The Abuja International Housing Show helps to stimulate the building and construction industry, in terms of design-led housing solutions, and high quality home-grown materials and products which are always in presentation.

Also, given that the convener of the Abuja International Housing Show is the promoter of Housing TV, housing development program showing on stations like AIT, TVC and NTA, housing time on Ray power and owner of the largest housing news portal, and not mentioning the live coverage on all social media platforms; it’s a guarantee that participants and exhibitors will get optimum publicity at almost no cost.

Opportunities for Sponsorship

The AIHS also offers opportunities for organisations and brands that want to gain more visibility and traction to sponsor the show and enjoy much more advertisement benefits that wouldn’t ordinarily be available.

For organisations that also want to sponsor the spread of information on relevant industry issues, especially as a form of corporate social responsibility, the AIHS has always been a great platform for them.

Opportunities for Cheap Bargains

The show offers opportunities to make direct sales, direct buying at discounted rates and getting good deals with a mortgage bank or estate developer.

It is also a one-time opportunity to expose yourself and organization to new options of housing finance.

Recognition of Excellence

The event will usually ends in grand style with the National Housing Awards, an award event put together to honour and celebrate firms, agencies and personalities who have made giant strides in the housing sector in the past year.

An attendance will guarantee you to share in the excitement as AIHS celebrates 14 years of innovation, and help honour the best of the best during the Awards.

Inspiring testimonies

The Abuja International Housing Show is also an avenue to be inspired, either as a professional or a budding entrepreneur or just a random participant.

A lot of people often share testimonies about how they have gotten relevant information that is specific to solving their business and career struggles from attending the event.

Such segments often lift the spirit of dreamers and it is always a catalyst for instant growth because one will be exposed to perspectives that they weren’t privy to initially.

Obviously, the well calculated designs and events that makes the AIHS the largest and most successful are inexhaustible. This is where stakeholders discover best practices and new methods for improving efficiency in all areas of the home with construction demos led by top building science experts. It is where global housing enthusiasts connect with like-minded professionals and industry experts in workshops, round-table discussions and networking events.

So far, the event has been able to help achieve reasonable level of housing affordability, access to mortgage options and market growth for relevant stakeholders and clients in the housing and construction industry. The show’s projection to significantly improve the housing deficit in Nigeria, Africa and the world is still very potent and plausible.

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.

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

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.

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.
