About the conference

african transport logo lo

African Roads Evolution will provide a forum, as part of African Construction and Totally Concrete Expos, for attendees to take home future- proofed solutions for boosting the quality and cost of road design, construction, maintenance and repair on the continent. This will include a look at innovations in gravel, asphalt and concrete roads with the ultimate goal of boosting trade, sparking growth and creating jobs through the creation of a sustainable road network.

African Roads Evolution will focus on the latest technical and material innovations and large scale projects as Africa sets to upgrade and expand the continent's highway network, as well as building and maintaining many more smaller connecting roads. According to a report for the World Bank, the average road density on the African continent is 204 kilometres of road per 1000 square kilometres of land area – only a quarter of which is paved. In contrast, the world average is 944 kilometres per 1000 square kilometres with more than half paved.

HOUSING FOR AFRICA lo

Housing for Africa unites public and private sector stakeholders to deliver national and regional housing targets around the continent. This event will demonstrate projects, international best practise, theoretical ideologies and blue sky thinking to bring new perspectives and best in breed ideology to this rapidly growing sector, identifying commercial opportunities aligned with public sector mandates.

Africa’s real estate industry is booming as economies across the continent record impressive growth, with the real estate market in Nigeria alone worth $360.3 billion

With Africa’s population expected to double and hit 2.4 billion by 2050, rural-urban migration is set to increase, driving current cities to swell and force newer ones to spring up.

Housing for Africa aims to help Africa close the affordable housing gap in line with urbanisation by uniting senior government officials, loan providers, developers, financial institutions and investors to identify opportunities for development finance and new technologies for better building and construction for affordable housing delivery.
