The Nigerian FM Roundtable 2018Enabling Positive Experiences in a Post-Recession Real Estate Market

Therefore, since experts agree that FM accounts for up to 80 percent of Real Estate asset lifecycle, all stakeholders within the Nigerian built environment must begin to articulate strategies that will help the industry attract interest from both local and foreign investors.

The sixth edition of The Nigerian FM Roundtable seeks to evaluate the opportunities in the Real Estate market; and articulate the role of FM in; increasing and sustaining asset value for investors, enhancing profitability for corporations and improving people and process efficiency for businesses.
