UK: International Hospitality Media [IHM], the leading online publisher and event organiser for the hospitality and real estate sectors, is delighted to confirm that its latest launch – Urban Living Festival: stay • live • work – will go ahead as scheduled on 25-26 November at Tobacco Dock in London.
Urban Living Festival [ULF] is a new type of event, themed across three stages – live, work and stay, where the global community of contemporary hospitality and real estate leaders will gather to collectively define the evolution of living and working in modern cities.
Changing demographics, social and economic drivers are fuelling investor decisions across broader Urban Living asset classes. ULF places the spotlight directly on investment, development, supply, operations, brands, distribution and demand generators in the age of convergence.
Curated with an intense focus on collaboration and debate, the festival brings CEOs, speakers and attendees, sponsors and solution providers to collectively share best practice, network, map the industry’s future and do business.
Piers Brown, CEO of International Hospitality Media, says: “Now, more than ever, it’s vital for the key players in hospitality and real estate to gather in order to forge new relationships, develop new concepts, and collaborate for the mutual benefit and strength of the industry. We were delighted to hear the Prime Minister’s announcement regarding a 1 October restart for the events sector, and can’t wait to welcome investors, developers, operators and suppliers to ULF as we all take our first steps in to a new business landscape with its fresh challenges and opportunities.”
ULF will shine a spotlight on:
- Hotels and serviced apartments
- Aparthotels / extended stay hotels
- Hostels and co-living
- Build-to-rent [BTR] and student accommodation
- Short-term rentals
- Senior living
- Healthy Buildings, sustainability and wellness
IHM has also confirmed that its Urban Living Festival MEA event will now take place in September 2021, in Dubai. Based on the same principles as the London event, ULF MEA will focus on the evolution of the fast-moving GCC markets.
