Serviced Apartment Summit arrives in Asia

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 31 January 2019


Thailand: The first Serviced Apartment Summit Asia takes place next month, with the inaugural event attracting high-level hospitality delegates to Bangkok.

Dedicated to Asia's thriving serviced apartment sector, this unique two-day event will focus on engaging executive debates and networking rather than long speeches…

The event takes place on February 21 and 22 at the Amari Watergate hotel, marking the launch of the region's first dedicated event for the extended stay, corporate housing and branded residence markets.
This unique two-day summit is a must-attend event for anyone with an interest in Asia's serviced apartment sector. It is not your ordinary conference however; there will be no keynote speakers or lengthy panel discussions. Instead, delegates will be able to engage in a series of lively debates intended to challenge conventional thinking and drive innovation. The first day of the event will also include an "Old Town Tour" of interesting hospitality and co-working concepts.
Designed as a collective environment of hospitality leaders, SAS Asia will provide a forum for networking, education and sharing best practices.

Asia's serviced apartment inventory has increased by 33 per cent in the last two years, and there are now more than 116,600 units located in 889 destinations all across the region. This growth means that the time is ripe for Asia to host a dedicated serviced apartment event.
Piers Brown, CEO of International Hospitality Media, who also hosts annual SAS events in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East & Africa, said: "Until now, there hasn't been such a laser-focused approach to served apartments and alternative hospitality choices within the region. Asia is seeing a rising number of new concepts and products that are blurring the lines between hospitality sectors, such as hotels offering co-working space. SAS Asia will debate these key trends and consider their impact on the industry, while also creating a highly productive platform for networking."

"Our global series of SAS events aims to create a fresh approach to doing business. We gather high-level hospitality leaders from all areas of the industry, including owners, operators, developers, investors, lenders and more, with the intention of innovating and advancing the industry. We look forward to welcoming forward-thinking business leaders to Bangkok for the inaugural SAS Asia," he added.

Sponsors include Oakwood, ONYX Hospitality Group, RMS and Global Hospitality Services. SAS Asia is expected to attract  professionals from a range of sectors, including serviced apartments, extended stay hotels, branded residences and short-term rentals. A high proportion of CEO-level delegates have already been confirmed.
