The Millard Fuller Foundation is set to exhibit its products at the 12th Abuja International Housing Show scheduled to take place at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, from Monday, 16th to Thursday, 19th July 2018.

As an annual event which brings together housing sector professionals and stakeholders, the Abuja International Housing Show provides an avenue for organizations and individuals to sell their products and brands to potential clients and investors.

The convener of the Abuja International Housing Show, Festus Adebayo in an interview, has promised that this year’s edition will witness new innovations that have been added to the largest housing show on the continent.

Some of the unique innovations, according to Adebayo, include the introduction of the CEO’s forum, women in the housing sector initiative, international real estate investment forum and the youth in real estate development forum.

According to him, “The CEO’s forum is unique in the sense that leaders in real estate, banking, building materials and technology will be meeting together to address the issue of affordable housing finance holistically”.

He further stated, “We will be launching the women in housing sector initiative. The show will also feature youth in real estate development. As you know, there are a lot of youths who are excelling in real estate and there are some who have not discovered the opportunities in the sector; the idea is to catch them young and teach them by educating them on housing mortgage, among others.”

With the Theme: “Driving Growth & Sustainability In Nigeria Housing & Mortgage Markets - Improving Structures & Policies For Impact”, this year’s event, according to the convener, will feature 30 Speakers and 350 exhibitors from not less than 10 countries.
