The theme of the 2020 Convention is #Tomorrow. About the theme, Gopal says the past year has been challenging on many fronts and that this has had a knock-on effect on the property industry. “The industry has felt the effects at an alarming rate in the form of a weakening economy, decreasing investor confidence, rising municipal costs, water and electricity crises, high tenant vacancies.” But, even in the face of such challenges, hope continues to spring eternal in the heart of South Africans who are determined turn the situation around and do the work required to turn our tomorrow around. “The industry looks to leaders for answers on what is in store for the property sector, exploring the opportunities, disruptors and technology heading our way.” The Convention programme addresses these and other issues to ensure that the sector continues to inspire further development and productivity through achieving specific outcomes.
