GRI Club Africa

Overview

The GRI Club is a global fraternity of real estate leaders. Through the Africa chapter, club members gain access to the African and global community through gatherings held across the world. 

Club Meetings in Lagos, Nairobi, London, Paris and Johannesburg cover a specific theme, sub-sector or micro-market pertinent to member's needs.

Members find the club a useful way to maintain valuable relationships, find new business partners, and strengthen their global networks.

In addition, Open Events bring non-members and members together for high level debates with global investors.

The relaxed and collegial environment helps members build personal friendships with like-minded business partners.
