Serviced Apartment News teamed up with AltoVita for a series of of four APAC-focused webinars, discussing various facets of the corporate housing, relocation and accommodation sectors in the region.

Each session lasted an hour and featured in-depth discussions, moderated by either SAN editor George Sell or Eloise Hanson, news editor at sister title Boutique Hotel News. Sell said: "Hosting the Rising Up sessions in partnership with AltoVita and has been a really enjoyable and informative process. I have learned a lot about this dynamic region, which is home base to the serviced apartment sector's biggest players, as well as a host of dynamic start-ups and established regional operators. As the corporate travel sector kicks back in to gear after the shock of the pandemic, certain themes became apparent throughout the sessions - notably an increased emphasis on duty of care, evolving working habits, the need for flexible rental terms, intuitive guest-facing technology and smart distribution."
