Towards collaboration, implementation and accountability


Collaboration, implementation and accountability are the key focus areas for the Western Cape Property Development Forum’s  (WCPDF) 7th Annual Conference in 2020. It reflects on a year of challenges, the avenues pursued to bring public and private sectors into alignment, the successes achieved as well as an in-depth interrogation of the work still to be done, and the plotting of a workable vision for economic growth into the future.


Due to Covid-19, we recently changed the date of our annual conference from May to August 2020. However, in light of the recent announcement by the Western Cape Provincial Government to convert the Cape Town International Convention Centre into an 800-bed Covid-19 hospital, as well as the ongoing prohibition of all public gatherings, we are faced with cancelling this year’s conference.

The impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on our industry has been and continues to be severe. Ironically, the need for the industry conference is now greater than ever since there will have to be serious deliberation on the actions required to resurrect the property development and construction sector. Since this cannot take the form of a physical conference we are currently investigating alternative platforms and liaising with professionals who specialise in online conferencing, webinars and networking.

More information will be announced in due course. We thank you for your interest and support and hope you can join us online soon.
