We are most willing to discuss implementation of the above offerings or any other ideas you may have for your company to add value for our 2020 conference delegates and gain appropriate exposure for your organisation.

We hope to conclude most of the major sponsorship agreements before the end of June 2020 so that we can timeously include the names of major sponsors in the main wave of advertising leading up to the event in August 2020.

We look forward to welcoming you on board as a sponsor of the WCPDF 2020 Vision for Growth conference, and to working with you to make the event, once again, a valuable and rewarding event for all participants.

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.
