“This was my first attendance at the Urban Living Festival which I found to be informative, well structured featuring some great panels and speakers and – what makes it different and stand out from many other conferences – the calibre of attendees and their clear willingness to listen, learn and comment on current issues facing the residential and hospitality sectors – all in all a fascinating and ‘well worth the visit’ occasion.”
