We love coming to the Serviced Apartment Summit every year. All the industry leaders are mingling with the smaller operators like us and it feels like one big family. Although it’s a big industry, it feels like it’s at the beginning of its growth and people are happy to help each other. It’s a fun and creative atmosphere and it’s great to meet lots of other people working in the same sector
Christoph Wondraczek, managing director, Nest Geneva
"A great source of information from industry specialists and leaders."
Mark Spencer, business development manager, Tripping.com
We’ve had a very good time here. We’ve got a stand, and for a small, young brand like us it’s great to get ourselves out there alongside the more established brands and meet people, so we are considered for future projects across Europe.
James Fry, co-founder, Base Nyon
I think it’s been a fantastic event. It’s really useful from my point of view to meet with my peers in the industry and to get updates on developments, new openings, and plans for the future. It’s also good to get updates on how different operators work and to see the changes that are coming through in to the market place.
Simon Morrison, managing director, Select Apartments
This is the third time I’ve been to the Summit and I always really enjoy it. It’s a unique forum to meet up with people I know, to connect with people I only know on LinkedIn, and people who genuinely have an interest in this sector and want to share their experiences.
Ben Davis, co-founder and director, Saxbury
For me personally, being new to the industry, it’s been a great opportunity to meet some of the key players, and to see that everybody is facing similar challenges as they forge their own identity and their own niche in the industry. It’s helped to understand that our business is now one founded on partnership, working with some great operators out there.
Steve Burns, managing director EMEA and APAC, BridgeStreet Global Hospitality
