Alternative Residential Update

Expecting a sell out audience at The Alternative Residential Event. Panel includes some of the most respected figures in the sectors and crucially the Investors themselves.

Alternative Residential Property

The 2020 Alternative Residential Property Conference has now launched, expect some key discussions and vital information on the market going forward

Alternative Resi 2020

Superb panel taking shape at the Alternative Residential Event on 14th October. Likely to be a very popular event #LD Events #AlternativeResi

Agenda

The conference takes place on Wednesday 14th October 2020 at The De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden

As some traditional property assets face an uncertain future, there is huge investor interest in the 'Alternative Living' Property markets - in particular, Student Housing, Retirement Living, Co-Living and Build to Rent. These forms of operational real estate are backed up in the long term by more certainty of demand and growth, and as we emerge for the Coronavirus crisis, they are now even greater opportunity areas than before. 

The 4th Annual Alternative Residential Property Conference takes place on 14th October and the event itself will obviously look a little different, with social distancing and enhanced cleaning measures in place, plus a reduced capacity for the safety of our delegates and staff. 

The purpose of the day will be to discuss the future of these ‘alternative’ sectors, understand why they have seen such investment growth, and learn where they are going in the future. We expect the day to sell out and there will be a lot of interesting discussions, including the similarities and differences between these particular sectors and how they work together.

This event is likely to sell out quickly due to our more limited capacity, so please book early to guarantee your place.
