THE 10th annual conference of the WCPDF (Western Cape Property Developers Forum) is being held under the theme: “Western Cape Investment: People, Purpose, Pro[s]per[i]ty. The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) will once again be the venue having proved to be very popular with 2022 attendees.
Discussing the theme this year, WCPDF Conference Chair and COO of AL&A, Alwyn Laubscher explains: “Property inspires people by giving them a purpose and a place in which to prosper. While the rest of South Africa seems to be suspended in a political and economic holding pattern, the Western Cape is rapidly moving forward under its own steam, with the huge contribution made by the property development and construction industry being acknowledged as a catalyst towards this.
“We create the spaces in which people do things, and increasingly people from other parts of South Africa and abroad are turning their sights onto the Western Cape, seeking safer investment opportunities and better lifestyles.”
Adds Deon van Zyl, Chairperson of the WCPDF: “The programme is a microcosm of what we are seeing in the Western Cape. Regional and local governments are really starting to invite industry to the table to partner around infrastructure, affordable housing and innovative sustainability. Private equity financiers are stepping forward into the vacuum being created by banks. Developers are acknowledging the critical importance of effective community engagements. And tertiary institutions have become key players on the property development stage. This year’s WCPDF conference highlights all of these to guide investors.”
