The SO!APART 2018 in pictures

Mix & Match sums up the thematic focus of this year's SO!APART. The boundaries are blurring, providers with adapted concepts offer alternatives and the segment is seeking inspiration from neighbouring areas; co-working and co-living are only two of the catchwords. At the same time, features of a serviced apartment (such as a fully equipped kitchen) that were previously perceived as set are being reconsidered and reinterpreted. What does this mean for the segment, where does it go? How is further growth possible? The attendees discussed these and other topics with experts and industry representatives at the SO!APART 2018. On 14 November 2018, the best houses were also honoured with the SO!APART-Awards 2018 at a festive evening event.
