Put together by the world’s oldest and largest hospitality technology exposition and conference brand, HFTP (Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals), HITEC Amsterdam brings together 5500 people from across the globe, all part of the hospitality technology community. Running from Tuesday 28th March to Thursday 30th March, the key industry event hosts a variety of cutting edge conferences and educational sessions.
It’s an opportunity for international industry professionals to come together and Avvio could not be more thrilled to be exhibiting. We’re also sponsoring two education sessions at HITEC, so if you’re in Amsterdam, why not come along?
More than just a place to stay.
That’s the tagline award-winning serviced apartments provider, Cheval Residences, pride themselves on. And they’re not lying. With a range of five star serviced apartments across London and a team dedicated to providing the best user and guest experience, Cheval Residences won two awards last year and are once again in the running to win not one but three awards at tonight’s Serviced Apartment Awards.
Avvio is extremely excited to be working with Cheval Residences. Last week, we sat down with Cheval’s Emma Stroud to discuss what makes an award winning brand.
If you attended ITB Berlin last week, you may have seen me walking the floor. Travelling and events are a staple diet for me, but ITB was different, as it gave me the valuable opportunity to meet and speak with hundreds of industry leaders in one place.
The five-day event was filled with experts speaking on developments in the hospitality industry, but one seminar particularly caught my attention.
Avvio is delighted to have been shortlisted for the Best Use of Technology award for at this year’s Serviced Apartment Awards. We’ll have a table at the awards on the 20 March, and if you’re going we’d be delighted to meet you at the event.
The excitement doesn’t end there. We’re thrilled to congratulate some of our clients for their nominations for also being shortlisted.
Cheval Residences in London have been shortlisted for three awards: the Best Independent Operator, the Best Sales/ Account Management Team and the Best Marketing or Branding Campaign.
Apple Apartments have also been listed, both for the Best Marketing or Branding Campaign and for the Best Use of Social Media.
We could not be prouder to be working with these two fantastic accommodation providers, and many other Avvio clients who will be attending the event, and we look forward to raising a glass to them celebrate the industry at the event.
What are the Serviced Apartment Awards?
The Serviced Apartment Awards are the only awards to celebrate the achievements of businesses in the serviced apartment, aparthotel, extended stay and short term rental industry. Hosted by TV presenter, Georgina Burnett at the five-star Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in London.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Apple Pay has arrived in Ireland. Consumers no longer need to dig out their wallet or credit card to pay for a product or service. They merely whip out their phone, tap and go. Over two years since it was first introduced in the USA, the technology has been a long time coming for Irish retailers.
