Urban Living Festival is returning in September 2024

Urban Living Festival announces new venue, format and awards

UK: International Hospitality Media [IHM], a leading publisher and event organiser in the hospitality and real estate sectors [and the publisher of STRz], has announced major expansion and improvement to its flagship Urban Living Festival.

Taking place at Mary Ward House, close to the major urban regeneration projects at London’s King Cross, the festival will take place on September 18 and 19 2024.

The first day will consist of property tours of leading-edge assets across the living and hospitality sectors followed by a drinks reception, while day two will see a full day’s content covering numerous asset classes.

The new venue has numerous break-out areas, allowing ULF to feature for the first time, dedicated content streams which will include presentations, panels and debates covering build-to-rent [BTR], purpose-built student accommodation [PBSA], coliving, later living, flex workspace, hotels and hospitality, and short-term rentals.

ULF is partnering with leading trade associations across the various asset classes, with the UK Apartment Association [UKAA], the UK SFA [for the single-family rental sector], the Institute of Hospitality [IoH], the UK Short Term Accommodation Association [STAA] and the Flexible Space Association [FlexSA] already confirmed, and more to follow.

2024 will also see the introduction of the Urban Living Impact awards, a new initiative which will celebrate people and projects which are leading the way in urban development.

George Sell, editor-in-chief at IHM, said: “I’m very excited about the changes and improvement to ULF. The new format gives us the opportunity to offer much more detailed and tightly focused content on the numerous asset classes we’ll be covering, and our partnerships with trade associations will ensure the agenda is of-the-minute, providing the opportunity to discuss the issues that really matter. The event will also provide exceptional networking and learning opportunities.

“The new Urban Living Impact awards will shine a light on those who are truly excelling, delivering exemplar projects and initiatives across the asset classes,” he added.
