Our commitment to your safety:

With the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, we're thrilled to bring back in-person events this Autumn! As we continue to overcome and emerge from the pandemic, we know the best way through the latest developments and to keep the industry thriving is by working together. We want to reassure our guests and team members that it is our priority to provide an environment where they can participate safely and successfully in our events. To ensure our guests confidence in attendance, we will have the following protective measures in place:


  • Pre-registration only - no tickets will be sold at the door.
  • Everyone attending the event will be required to demonstrate proof of a recent negative lateral flow test result (logged within 36 hours) or evidence of their COVID-19 double vaccination status.
    Please note: you must complete your lateral flow test before arriving at the event. There are no testing facilities available on site.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Enhanced sanitisation protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitiser provided to all attendees.


As guidance evolves, we will provide regular updates regarding all further developments and changes. Thank you for your continued support for Bisnow's event programme, we look forward to hosting you soon to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business.

Why This Matters

What You’ll Learn

  • Who the investment players in the sector are, where the money is coming from, and how the market is evolving.
  • How investors can diversify their portfolio and get into the sector.
  • The scale of the opportunity for 'rented later living models' in urban locations.
  • Understanding how customers' requirements are evolving & what is needed to meet this demand.
  • The modern inventions & technologies revolutionising the way care is delivered & the needs of customers are met.
  • Implementing adaptability when delivering a scheme to ensure a secure long term investment.
  • The key concerns for investors when it comes to care homes and these concerns can be confronted and addressed.


How You'll Do More Business: As more baby boomers are retiring and downsizing, the need for later living housing — both luxury and affordable — continues to climb. Knight Frank predicts that the UK will see nearly 10% growth in this sector over the next five years. Can the market keep up with demand? Join our expert speakers as we review the capital committed to the sector, where the money is going, and how to diversify your portfolio and get a slice of the pie. Plus, with an aging demographic, owners and operators are reimagining their spaces to meet changing tenant demands. Learn which of these trends are truly transforming the future of later living.
