George Sell George Sell Uploaded 30 October 2015


US: The inaugural Serviced Apartment Summit Americas will take place at the Westin New York at Times Square on April 13 and 14 2016.

The conference and exhibition features a tour of Manhattan corporate housing and extended stay real estate with numerous networking opportunities, and a full conference agenda with a top quality cast of industry expert speakers covering extended stay hotels, branded residences, aparthotels, corporate housing and short term rental.

The Serviced Apartment Summit brand was launched with a London event in 2013, and has grown rapidly each year. In 2015 the London conference attracted more than 300 quality delegates from 30 countries. The inaugural Serviced Apartment Summit MEA took place in Dubai earlier this week.

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 to drive their business forward."

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."
Anthony Balestrieri, director, real estate investors, Metlife, said: "I have been delighted to participate in the Serviced Apartment Summit Americas advisory committee meeting, and it's pleasing to see an investment focus on the corporate housing, extended stay and short term rental sectors."
Confirmed sponsors for the event are BridgeStreet Global Hospitality, Cheval Residences and WaterWalk Hotel Apartments.
