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.

This event is part of a series run in Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam to share the latest research, insights and expertise. CMS will highlight new research into the macro-trends and lifestyle changes in six key cities (London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Manchester and Glasgow), and the key factors likely to drive growth and future demand for rented housing products across generations and societal groups.

You can benefit from the results of major polls in each location (1,000 respondents per city), exploring the expectations of consumers in the rented sector, particularly student housing, co-living, private rented sector and senior housing. The research also gathers the perspectives of global real estate investors, developers and agents, as well as a cross-section of players active in the various subsets at both the investment and operational level.

Leading experts in the market will discuss some of the key themes highlighted by the research and their perspective on the current market, key trends and investment opportunities.

Join us at this important investment briefing to discuss the current and future trends, prospects, risks and opportunities of this fast-evolving sector. Benefit from the latest research, the views of market experts from across Europe and share your own perspectives in this interactive, time-efficient briefing.
