The conference will gather more than 40 speakers with strong reputation towards coworking & coliving, social entrepreneurship, and international community building, as well as representatives from the public sector and public policy influencers.

Its objective is to consolidate the entire industry and create the link between all coliving players - from operators to investors, architects, designers, and real estate developers.

                                                              Other Events Related to Coliving

Future: Proptech 2019

Date: May 14

Location: London, UK

The Future Proptech conference is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. With over 2000 attendees, 100+ speakers and 800+ companies on board, this event unites players that will shape the real estate industry.

Interesting for coliving, especially as the sector is needed more support from the software and service side. As we’ve seen in 2019, there are more and more proptech and software startups that are being created around coliving (among others Kndrd, Wigawam, or ColivMe).

Get your tickets here (price: £114 to £474)

National Cohousing Conference

Date: May 30 - June 2

Location: Portland, USA

The topic of the 2019 National Cohousing conference is “Community for the health of it” and focuses on the demand side of cohousing - mostly appealing to those who want to be part of cohousing or already live that way.

The objective is to create strong cohousing models and the program includes topics such as in-house organization, how to build stronger community, and efficient conflict resolution.

Get your tickets here (price: $445)

Coworking Europe 2019

Date: November 13-15

Location: Warsaw, Poland

The annual Coworking Europe conference brings together up to 800 coworking space operators and facilitators. Last year held in Amsterdam, the conference has become a milestone for coworking space operators and include speakers from all over Europe.

I added this conference to the list as coliving is becoming an increasing interest for coworking operators - while coliving is not an official topic of the conference, I’m certain that the topic will come up and that it might make a lot of sense to attend in order to explore the crossover between the coworking and coliving markets.

                                                                     Events that Might Happen

The Future of Real Estate Conference

Status: not confirmed yet

Probable Date: November

Last year, Cushman & Wakefield held the Future of Real Estate Conference in Lisbon, exploring how people will work, live and play in the future. With an emphasis of how this trend affects the real estate market, this event will definitely touch upon coliving if it is held this year.

Coliving Festival Zadar

Status: not confirmed yet

Probable Date: end 2019

In 2018, the Coliving Festival Zadar team lead by Marcus Mommsen hosted a coliving summit in Croatia. While I haven’t received official confirmation about the 2019 event, there is a chance it might happen end of 2019.

                                                             And Some More Events for Next Year

MIPIM

Last held: March 12-15 (already over)

Location: Cannes, France

Cushman & Wakefield organised another event this year - the MIPIM, according to the company one of the world’s leading property events. It brought together influential players from all international property sectors – office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial, offering unrivalled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide.

Definitely keeping a close look on their 2020 edition to see how coliving will be a key topic.

Discover more about the past conference here.

Co-Operative Real Estate Conference 2019

Last held: March 2 (already over)

Location: Toronto, Canada

A very interesting event, the Co-Operative Real Estate conference tackled the process of creating cooperatives in real estate. Major topics included how to finance a co-operative real estate purchase, what type of co-op model exist, and how to plan for future outcomes.

I'm keeping this conference on the radar especially as it offers hope for alternative coliving models that allow residents to create their own legal structure.

Discover more about the past conference here.

Build to Rent Forum

Last held: Feb 27 (already over)

Location: London, UK

With its last event held on the topic “The Diversification of Build to Rent”, this conference gathered both private and public sector leaders and key stakeholders to debate and exchange ideas. Because of an increasing trend to create more community within real estate projects, it will be interesting to attend next year’s forum to understand where the build-to-rent industry is overlapping with the coliving values.
