Branded residential and mixed use assets were very much a focal point of conversations at The Resort and Residential Hospitality Forum this year. 

We hear from Philip Bacon, Jesus Abellan, Daniel Correia, Christian Michel, and Arturo Rueda discuss the new home away from home.

We have always covered the residential aspect of mixed use resorts at our Resort and Residential Hospitality Forum, but this year it seemed to be at the center of the discussions across all panels.

The residential component of leisure hospitality has completely changed due to the fact that people's lifestyle have changed. The lines between work and leisure have changed and resorts have to adapt to that.

Developers and operators are being more innovative in design, in concepts, and in how they promote it. It's very clear now that this is a trend that is here to stay and they are finding ways to adapt these into their businesses.

But, how do you integrate those two guests: the hotel guest; and the residential guest and how do you meet both their needs? How do you convince lenders and investors to buy in, despite the complexity of these assets?
