Botswana prepares for first property investment and construction Expo

Botswana will hold a two-day high level trade exhibition for property investors and construction stakeholders next month, organisers said on Monday.

Ame Zachariah, Events Coordinator at OP Advertising, told The Telegraph that the exposition will be the first of its kind in Botswana.

“In Botswana, people nowadays are starting to appreciate investment in terms of property,” Zachariah said.

“Having a place, which is also free for public viewing, acts as an opportunity for people to come and ask questions regarding the latest real estate products and services, from architectural plans to consulting engineers and financial service providers such as First National Bank.”

Experts from the property and construction sectors, as well as residential real estate portfolio managers will explain their projects, present their assessment of the market and invite discussion from delegates.

This Expo is a key networking event for residential and commercial property investors, contractors and financiers.

It caters to the full spectrum of the property sector, offering a networking platform for serious deals to be made and contacts sourced for future business opportunities. 

Some of the topics that will be featured in the investment forums will include but are not limited to land tenure policies and practices in Botswana, construction procurement and tendering in Botswana, property financing and re-financing, the local property market and its opportunities, property development opportunities in urban and rural areas and general practice in investing in commercial and property throughout Botswana.

The exposition, which is free to the public, is expected to attract more than 15, 000 visitors over its two days and more than 200 exhibition stall will be showcasing their products.

People from both the public and private sector who are all interested in property and construction deals, will experience a golden opportunity to purchase investment properties, new homes, the latest furniture and fixtures, land developments, commercial properties, negotiate property financing, learn new construction techniques, speak to property advisors and procure property and construction goods and services all under one roof.

 The exhibition, which is the first of its kind, is to be held on the 16th-17th June, 2011 at Ditshupo Hall in Gaborone.
