Residential forum 2023

Residential Forum 2023, organized by the City Media Group, is the leading specialized forum with a focus on the residential sector and trends in the planning and realization of modern residential projects.
The residential segment - most vibrant with major construction volumes, has a key urban planning, economic and social impact on the environment. To a very large extent the residential projects shape the appearance of the cities, aiming at providing the living environment preferred by the inhabitants and, and last but not least, being a preferred investment asset in the context of an inflationary pressure and the volatility of alternative opportunities for capital investments.
In order to provide as broad and comprehensive a view of the key segment for the real estate sector as possible, the program of the Residential Forum 2023 will be composed of three main sessions: Urban Talks Session, The Market and Projects & Products Showcase 2023 Session. 

Urban Talks 2023 session: Urban development models and public-private synergies
Increased construction activity in recent years has in many cases overtaken the development of urban infrastructure, which creates prerequisites for technical deficits and transport challenges, as well as deteriorated or missing public space. Integrated efforts and a joint approach between the public and private sectors are needed to maintain a balance in areas with investment activity - especially those with regeneration potential. The Urban Talks session will emphasize on the levers for solving infrastructural deficits and on the principle of sustainable development of territories with investment potential creating value for the cities, as well as on the models for achieving attractive urban multifunctional spaces.

The Market 2023 session: Market environment, liquidity, financing, demand and supply
The market situation is not constant and has its specifics. The inflationary effect along with the supply chain and the labor market logically make the housing product more expensive, and the changes in the central banks monetary policies aim to gradually limit liquidity in the sector. The expectations are that these factors will increase the competition as the key criteria for selection in this environment will be the project quality. The Market session will provide an opportunity for professional discussion focused on the housing market and the trends in demand, liquidity, supply, pricing and macro factors shaping the current market environment. 

Projects & Products Showcase 2023 session: Top residential projects - from ideas to realization
The trends in the modern way of life and the requirements of the modern inhabitant are the foundation for the planning of housing projects, and the perception of the living environment has long gone beyond the framework of the housing asset itself - in addition to the attractive design and quality execution, the principle by which the project is adapted to the urban specifics, as well as the rational access to key social functions such as education, culture, sports and entertainment or multifunctionality in general. In addition, the application of innovative and quality materials and solutions, the integration of technologies that make projects more intelligent and sustainable creates key value for users. Projects & Products Showcase 2023 session will show the most interesting residential buildings in the process of realization, novelties in floor plan concepts and design trends, as well as building solutions and technologies that make a project more attractive.

Residential Forum 2023 will provide a platform to the most active participants in the housing sector by emphasizing the urban planning features, the market environment and trends in the design and implementation of quality housing projects as well as the solutions, innovations and technologies that create value for the sector.
