GRI Club Africa

Overview

The GRI Club is a global fraternity of real estate leaders. Members find the club a useful way to maintain valuable relationships, find new business partners, and strengthen their global networks.

Club Meetings in Lagos, Nairobi and Johannesburg cover a specific theme, sub-sector or micro-market and are exclusive to members.

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.
