Multigenerational living is fast becoming a buzzword among forward-thinking urban real estate developers as it chimes with the mixed-use ethos and a growing will to address loneliness in our communities. But what are the practicalities of multigenerational development, and how can it benefit all its intended resident groups?

Hosted by Dina Soliman-Pederson, managing director, BrandFull.

30 minutes to freshen up, grab a coffee and get ready for the morning's second half

With extended stay guests looking to stay for longer, and Buld To Rent operators offering minimum lengths of stay as little as three months, is there a sweet spot emerging where serviced apartments and BTR are servicing the same guests? What are residents' requirements, and the similarities and differences with guest profiles? What are the traditional distribution channels and will the lines blur even further in the future?

Every facet of our lives is increasingly dominated by technology - travel and hospitality are no exception. What are the future tech trends just over the horizon that will affect the way we travel, work and stay?

Light-hearted but with a serious message, each speaker has 5 mins max to convince the audience the hospitality asset they represent will be the most favoured investment class post-crisis. Each member of the audience has an imaginery £100 million GBP to allocate, who will be the winner?

Workshop: the audience will be split in to teams, with each tasked with conceptualising the reimagining and repurposing of a disused asset.

There were interesting opinions, relevant discussions and it was very worthwhile coming over to Berlin for Recharge. The discussion over what makes a serviced apartment what it is was one of my highlights and the Escape Room on Day 1 was good fun.
