This year’s convention will be an opportunity to discuss key themes, from regional empowerment to sustainable solutions, as we collectively shape a brighter future for nation building. This brings together the brightest minds in the housing industry that will harness the potential of local communities, driving progress that resonates far beyond geographical boundaries.
