BRE is an all-day intensive strategy and innovation event focused entirely on branded accommodations in urban real estate: Short-term rentals, co-living, co-working, traditional hospitality, and branded residences. We are excited to bring together top operators and experts to align on market landscape, dynamics, best practices, and future investment outcomes in this exciting space.


Sessions will address: Professionalizing and integrating short-term rentals into ground-up and existing developments, community building and management, optimizing mixed-use & multi-family through branded partnerships, venture capital in hospitality, recession proofing investments, leveraging tech and third-party services to bring hospitality elements into residential living, digital marketing and distribution trends, and more.


The program examines the future of hospitality and real estate through the lens of brand and tenant-guest experience.
