Serviced Apartment News, part of International Hospitality
Media, has announced it is taking its hugely successful Serviced Apartment Summit b2b conference to the
Americas, with the launch of Serviced Apartment Summit
The inaugural Serviced Apartment Summit Americas will take place in New York City in April 2016, and will feature a full conference agenda with a top quality cast of industry expert speakers covering serviced apartments, extended stay hotels, branded residences, aparthotels and corporate housing.
Event host Piers Brown said: "The buzz surrounding the serviced apartment sector is a global phenomenon, and we are very much looking forward to bringing the Summit to the American market, where the industry, particularly the extended stay and corporate housing sectors are relatively mature but still growing strongly, with CHPA's Corporate Housing Industry Report highlighting a 4% increase over 2013 to $2.73 billion. Like our European event, Serviced Apartment Summit Americas promises to have a high quality attendance of operators, real estate developers and financial institutions to map the future and drive the sector forward together. We offer sponsors, exhibitors and delegates the opportunity to make valuable new business contacts and gain knowledge."
Sean Worker, CEO of BridgeStreet Global Hospitality, the event's Patron sponsor, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the first Serviced Apartment Summit Americas. Having been involved with the London Summit from its foundation, BridgeStreet has seen at first hand the benefits an event such as this has for broadening the appeal of our whole industry. Having a forum to bring together multi-discipline expertise such as advisory, investment, legal services and technology is invaluable, and I look forward to welcoming Piers and his team to the US, and a successful event."
The Serviced Apartment Summit brand was launched with a London event in 2013, and has grown rapidly each year. In 2014 the London conference attracted over 300 delegates and speakers from as far afield as Australia, Singapore, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, the US, India and across Europe.
The 2015 London Summit is being held at the Park Plaza Victoria on July 7 and 8 with more than 25 sponsors ranging from major brands to advisory services.
The launch of Serviced Apartment Summit Americas comes hot on the heels of an announcement from International Hospitality Media regarding the launch of Serviced Apartment Summit MEA. The first event of its kind to focus on the Middle Eastern and African markets takes place at The Fairmont on the Palm in Dubai on October 26 and 27
