The grand opening of the event which happened on Monday at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel saw the Deputy Minister Works and Housing Hon Abdulai Abanga as the Special Guest of Honor.

He extolled the significance of the conference and the role it can play in changing the face of the real estate industry in Ghana and Africa in general.

The Founder GREPA, Mrs Vicky Sampah in her opening remarks, said “GREPA is here to help change the face of the industry and also to assist the Ghana Revenue Authority to rake in more revenue for the State.”

First of its kind, the event is expected to host over 1000 local attendees and more than 300 international attendees both physical and virtual from all over the world including experienced local and international speakers, instructors, investors, industry practitioners as well as a global audience with a vision to empower, motivate and equip industry professionals with tools to succeed.

It is a 5 full-day event with a half-day wrap-up on the 5th day open for attendees to network and tie knots.

The program is Powered by GREPA (Ghana Real Estate Professionals Association): An organization set up in 2011 to bring Professionals in the Ghanaian Real Estate Industry together for purposes of promoting the goals of its members, promoting ethics and professional standards within the industry as well as creating and supporting local and international networking opportunities for its members. We are connecting with Global Stakeholders in the industry to promote Real Estate in Ghana, gathering support for Legislation, Research andEducation.
Over the past decade, GREPA has achieved remarkable successes and notable milestones among including:

* The first organization in Ghana to bring together real estate professionals in Ghana together.

* Joining the US National Association of Realtors Bilateral Partners with an agreement signed in 2015

* Obtaining License to teach NAR certification and designation courses

* Joined a stakeholder in drafting, reviewing and advocating for the passing of the Real Estate Act of 2020

* Providing industry professionals with countless resources

GREPA hopes to provide a solution to the dearth of real estate professionals that understand the African market by rolling out a number of carefully designed educational packages in Ghana to provide in-depth knowledge in real estate market dynamics across the entire African continent. We are among the very few organizations faced with the responsibility of improving Africa’s real estate space.

There are a number of challenges impeding the optimal exploitation of Africa’s real estate potential, we believe that with continuous training, education, and advocacy for proper legislation, the industry will reach the full potential
