The urbanisation trend, changes in lifestyle, different work patterns and increasing mobility are changing Europe's cities. What used to be referred to as 'Generation rent' has become a phenomenon that goes well beyond a narrow demographic group. Not just students, but also professionals and workers of all ages and indeed retired people as well are choosing to be more mobile and opt for renting over owning to retain flexibility.
At this briefing market experts will discuss the topic, while the conference host CMS will present new research which will consider macro-trends and how lifestyles are changing in six key cities (London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Manchester and Glasgow), in order to draw out which factors may be driving growth and future demand for rented housing products across generations and societal groups.
Through a major poll in each location (1,000 respondents per city), CMS will explore the expectations of consumers when renting in key subsets of rented housing, particularly student housing, co-living, private rented sector and senior housing. We will also conduct an industry poll to gather the perspectives of global real estate investors, developers and agents, as well as interviewing a cross-section of players active in the various subsets at the investment or operational level.
Come to this briefing to find out about current and future trends and what the prospects are for this fast-evolving sector, hear the views of experts and ask your own questions.
