Retirement living the hot topic at this year’s Leisure Real Estate Summit

With 19% of the UK’s population set to be pensioners by 2021, it is no wonder that retirement living and the provision of accommodation for older generations is

the hot topic at this year’s Leisure Real Estate Summit.

After its highly successful inaugural event last year, the 2014 Leisure Real Estate Summit will return to London on Thursday 27th February with sessions split between two separate areas covering leisure real estate and a vacation rental 101.

One session in particular, “Silver dollars and property for passport – the retirement market and residency” is already proving especially popular.

Moderated by Chris Nye, Editor of OPP Magazine, this brand new panel session held at 14.45 at The Montcalm Hotel, Marble Arch, will examine how property is aimed at these rapidly growing demographic groups and evolving to keep up with demand and lifestyle trends.

Sharing his insight into Active Retirement Living, Gil Summers, Founder of ´Summers Villages´, dedicated short & long stay resorts for the over 50s, will be joining the panel.

Piers Brown, Founder and Organiser of the Leisure Real Estate Summit, comments,

“Much of Europe’s wealth is currently in the hands of the older generation and there is a real shortage of quality leisure resort developments catering to this growing demographic. We´re delighted to welcome Gil as a true innovator within the sector to the conference.”

Joining Gil on the panel will also be Danny Silver, Managing Founder of The Villages Group who will share his experience of creating active living retirement resorts in France and the first to welcome the LGBT community.

Designed to provide hotel and other leisure real estate asset owners, asset managers and investors from all over the world with new and complementary strategies to create real value, identifying routes to investment in order to release the potential of UK and international assets, the Leisure Real Estate Summit is the must-attend event for 2014.
