We’re really glad to participate in SEN HABITAT DAKAR 2017. We noticed a strong attendance here. We register many visitors we didn’t expect to have and among them interesting contacts.
Following our first participation to this fair we confirm our full satisfaction regarding the organization and the quality of visitors.
This has been a rewarding experience in terms of contacts and networks. The exhibition allowed me to communicate about my business and my projects
New dynamics of large-scale production of sustainable and affordable housing
The 5th Senegal International Real Estate, Housing & Construction Exhibition & Conference (SENHABITAT 2024) will take place from 07-09 October 2024, at the King Fahd Palace Dakar, Republic of Senegal. The event is organized by AME Trade Senegal under the aegis of the Ministry of Urban Planning, Housing and Public Hygiene of the Republic of Senegal.
SENHABITAT is an established event, part of Senegal’s republican agenda, is attended at the highest level and guarantees the presence of serious investors and wide media coverage that benefits all participants.
SENHABITAT is already in its fourth edition. The event has been regularly inaugurated either by His Excellency Macky SALL, President of the Republic, or by the Prime Minister.
SENHABITAT, during these four previous editions, brought together the Ministers of Housing from Senegal, Morocco, Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina, Niger, Togo and Gambia.
SENHABITAT is, therefore a regional event, where you can expand your business network across North and West Africa.

Opportunities to collaborate with the government to develop 100 000 houses
The Government of Senegal wants to eradicate slums by 2035 and accelerate the supply of decent and affordable housing through the construction of 100,000 social housing over 5 years. This is an effort to bridge the housing deficit gap estimated at 350,000 units (150,000 units in Dakar). Dakar has become one of the top ten most expensive African cities to live in. By 2030, with a population of over 5 million inhabitants, Dakar will be one of top 15 most populous African cities.
