UK: International Hospitality Media has confirmed that the Urban Living Festival: stay • live • work – will now take place on October 26 – 27 2021 at Tobacco Dock in London, following the announcements from the UK government on Monday.

Urban Living Festival (ULF) is a brand 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, the impact of the pandemic and the subsequent 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, technology and distribution and demand generators in the age of convergence.

Curated with an intense focus on collaboration and debate, the festival brings CEOs to c-suite executive owners, investors, developers, operators and service providers together to collectively share best practice, engage with the industry’s future and do business.

Piers Brown, CEO of IHM, said: “Now, probably more than ever, it's vital for the key players in hospitality and real estate to keep updated with the latest intelligence and engage with those active in the market. We are delighted to be able to make this festival of ideas happen in 2021, and can't wait to welcome investors, developers, operators and suppliers to ULF as we emerge and learn to operate in a new business landscape with its fresh challenges and opportunities. I am particularly grateful to all our supporters for their patience and look forward to hosting an event sponsors, exhibitors, attendees and the whole industry can be proud of.”

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 

• Co-working
