For the first time ever IHIF is running a pop-up event alongside the main convention track. Adjacent Spaces will take place at The Pullman Hotel Berlin Schweizerhof on Thursday 2nd September and for those that can’t attend the event will also be live-streamed.

Panellists and speakers from across the industry will talk hostels, co-living, co-working, student accommodation, serviced apartments, senior living, and more. This event will explore investing beyond the hotel room and is open to all registered delegates of IHIF.

Below we’ve picked out some highlights as well as some pre-conference Q&As
