ASAP was delighted to welcome over 100 members and partners to our summer networking evening last night, June 28th 2017.
It was fantastic to hear so much optimism and positivity in our sector as members reported very busy summer business across the UK.
This was also underlined in our joint Sentiment Survey with Savills released earlier this week, with over one third of operators confirming they are accelerating their expansion plans.
StayCity – who generously hosted our event at their Heathrow property – confirmed they have already opened over 500 new apartments this year with new aparthotels opened in Manchester, Lyon & Marseilles, and their new premium brand property in London – The Strand – which will open later this summer.
Speaking at the event, James Foice ASAP CEO (pictured) underlined the critical importance of the association’s Quality Accreditation Programme as the key differentiator for the sector moving forward.
