UK: International Hospitality Media (IHM), the publisher of ShortTermRentalz, has announced the launch of a webinar series in the run up to the URBAN LIVING FESTIVAL 2020: stay-live-work.

The fortnightly series of Urban Living webinars is designed to encourage participants to think differently and look to the future with thought-provoking discussions, debates, live Q&As with industry leaders and innovators as we begin to emerge into the future normal.
