Real Estate Development Summit - West Africa
After the tremendous success of the RED summits in 2018, The RED Summit is all set to replicate the West Africa Edition, which takes place on the 24th and 25th of October, 2019. The summit will host suppliers from across the globe while buyers will participate from West Africa.
The core thought-process behind the summit stems from a place of eliminating the common pain points that plague the suppliers & buyers in commonplace networking events. Thus, through a combination of a rigorous selection process and intelligent design, the RED summit is an amalgamation of personalised face-to-face meetings, purposeful networking, and impactful knowledge sessions & panel discussions.
Along with a focused professional set-up, the RED summit also ensures that the one-to-one meetings take place with either C-level executives or key-decision makers. Hence, providing a forum to explore better business opportunities to forge strong and lasting business relationships.
The pre-scheduled face-to-face interactions are placed in a definite context, which assures a dialogue that is substantial and meaningful. The RED summit caters to the specific requirements and needs of each attendee through its personalised agenda and assures maximised value at all levels of participation, even after the event.
C-level executives and key decision makers from primarily the Residential, Hospitality, Commercial, and Mixed-use sectors will be present at the summit amongst other qualified buyers & suppliers. Residential sector tops the list with 45% attendees. Hospitality follows with 30% and commercial ranks third with 15%.
The event follows a rigorous and systematic process through which all the interactions are planned. Thus, leading to meaningful engagement, networking, and business collaborations.

With a guest list that consists of 150 VIP delegates, we ensure personal attention and productive networking opportunities to every participant. Both the suppliers and buyers are chosen on fixed and elaborate pre-qualification criteria. Thus, eliminating any possibility of discrepancy or dissatisfaction to all the parties involved in any manner. Moreover, based on the requirements, the suppliers and the buyers choose who they want to collaborate with in meaningful one-to-one meetings on the days of the event.
On the day:
On the day of the summit, you'll be a part of a forum that will facilitate meaningful sharing of knowledge along with insightful discussions on the latest trends in the industry. Along with exchanging of cards, the attendees of the RED summit will engage in one to one meetings with leaders and key decision makers from across the industry and strike business collaborations. These encounters are facilitated in a systematic manner through carefully-designed networking activities. The suppliers showcase their product lines to multiple qualified buyers who will be present at the event. To aid with the navigation through various facets of the RED Summit, a key-account manager is allocated who will help maximizes networking opportunities.
Even after the event, the RED Summit assures personal assistance through the key-account managers. Along with following up regarding the meetings, the manager will act on any postponement by setting-up another meet in accordance with the buyers and suppliers preferences. Meetings between the buyers and the suppliers are tracked and the progress is monitored. In the case of any feedback, we also try to bring in more suppliers in order to meet the buyers' requirements. If any other requirement arises post the event, a pro-active support is provided.
Through an approach that is most direct, the buyers participating in the RED summit can source new and innovative supplier solutions. Buyers, as per their preference, can handpick business meeting and also avail the chance to network and collaborate with industry peers. The qualification process ensures supplier efficiency as well as cost-saving opportunities. The event experience is designed and curated for each buyer to maximise results.
