The WCPDF’s annual conference gathers together thought leaders from the public and private sector involved in fixed capital investment, development and construction, and who are dedicated towards achieving a sustainable built environment sector by tackling the challenges and celebrating the achievements of our collective industries.
Delegates range from large corporations, investment agencies, financial institutions and the legal fraternity to independent consultants, service providers and contractors, as well as political leaders and senior planning authorities across various government tiers.
The event is also well attended by the media, who have come to see it as a reputable indicator of the state of our sector and a valuable source for accurate, informative and well-researched content.
Initiated in 2014, this annual conference has grown substantially in attendance from less than 100 delegates in 2014 to a full house of over 250 at the 2019 conference. For 2020, the event is moving to the Cape Town International Convention Centre in order to accommodate 400 delegates, and make the conference even more centralised and accessible for delegates to attend from across the Western Cape.



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.
