Doing the business

It's hugely encouraging to see increased use of serviced apartments by corporate travel buyers again this year. According to a Business Travel Show survey, just under a third of buyers booked more serviced apartments in 2018 compared to 2017, and serviced apartments was was the only accommodation category to see an increase in use over the last 12 months.

When asked to rate their reasons for booking serviced apartments out of five options, number one was value for money, followed by convenience, more space, flexibility and long-term suitability.

In recognition of the vital role business travel plays, we have introduced two new categories to the 2019 Serviced Apartment Awards. Joining the Travel Buyer of the Year award, which was launched last year and won by Jan Jacobsen of AIG, are awards for Best Travel Management Company and Best Relocation Management Company.

The entry period for the awards is open until January 31st and I'm delighted to say that over 20 seats have already been secured exclusively for travel buyers for the big night.

If you are a serviced apartment operator working with corporate travel buyers, TMCs and RMCs who you think provide an excellent service, why not encourage them to enter the awards? There is no cost to enter and it's a simple process via our state-of-the-art online awards platform. The winners will be honoured on Thursday March 14th 2019 at the Park Plaza Riverbank in London.
