According to the CEO Vine Africa, Edwin Musiime, who launched the expo, it is aimed at creating a successful, sustainable, residential and commercial real estate.

With the theme, Moving Our Real Estate & Construction Capability Forward, the expo will be opened by president Yoweri Museveni. He will be in the company of other participants from the Ministry of Housing & Urban Planning, National Environment Management Authority (Nema), Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and The CEO magazine, Knight Frank, Vine magazine, amongst other.
