About this event
This event connects the global community of contemporary hospitality and real estate “urbanites” to collectively define the evolution of how and where we stay, live and work.

We welcomes urban innovators at the cutting edge of contemporary hospitality and real estate to explore the macro and micro drivers behind this growth and the challenges, opportunities and solutions in each market segment.

Changing demographics, social and economic drivers are fuelling investment decisions as investors put a greater focus on Urban Living asset classes. Curated with an intense focus on collaboration and debate, ULF brings CEO’s, ‘best of breed’ speakers, sponsors and service providers to collectively share best practice, network, map the industry’s future and do business within:
• Hotels and Serviced apartments
• Aparthotels / Extended stay hotels
• Hostels, Co-Living and Co-Working
• Build to rent (BTR) and Student accommodation
• Short Term Rentals
• Assisted Living
• ‘Healthy Buildings’, sustainability and wellness
• PropTech

Incorporating Boutique and Lifestyle Hotel Summit, Serviced Apartment Summit EU, and ‘ENGAGE’ - the corporate travel buyer forum, ULF places the spotlight directly on investment, development (supply), operating, brands, distribution and demand generators in the age of convergence.

Hosted over two days, London will have the opportunity to showcase its status as a “living and breathing” world-class metropolitan hub for property investors, developers, owners and operators.
