WaterWalk Hotel Apartments is a Platinum Sponsor for the inaugural Serviced Apartment Summit Americas conference.

The first 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.

WaterWalk is the fifth brand launched by extended-stay pioneer Jack DeBoer, founder of the Residence Inn, Summerfield Suites, Candlewood Suites, and Value Place/Woodsprings brands. The concept combines apartment living and an extended-stay hotel into one facility.

Piers Brown, CEO of International Hospitality Media, said: "We are delighted to welcome WaterWalk Hotel Apartments as our latest sponsor for Serviced Apartment Summit Americas. It's an exciting new brand with huge potential, driven by the unparalleled industry experience and knowledge of Jack De Boer."

Jon Wohlfert, president of WaterWalk Hotel Apartments, said: "Serviced Apartment Summit Americas promises to be a truly significant event for our industry - giving the sector a great opportunity to come together, share best practices, learn from each other and map the future direction of the market. We are very happy to be supporting the event."

WaterWalk joins patron sponsor BridgeStreet Global Hospitality and platinum sponsor Cheval Residences in the first wave of event sponsors.

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 300 delegates from more than 20 countries.
