London to host in-person Short Stay Summit

A new in-person conference is scheduled to take place later this year for the international short-term rentals industry.

The Short Stay Summit has been created by the European Holiday Home Association (EHHA), the UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA) and the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) and will take place on 14 September 2021 at London's Tobacco Dock.

The location has been chosen for this one-day event for its abundant outdoor space and well ventilated areas to comply with Covid-safe requirements.

The event is supported by title sponsor Vrbo, part of the Expedia Group, and platinum sponsor

Other sponsors include Homes & Villas by Marriott International, Awaze, Rentals United, UnderTheDoormat and Breezeway.

It will be the largest European conference the sector has seen since 2019.

Carlos Villaro Lassen, Secretary General, EHHA, said: "We are really excited for the short-term rental industry to meet again in person. Under the restrictions of lockdown, we have suffered severely but, as an industry, we are more than ready for a comeback that will result in a stronger and more professional short-term rental sector."

Industry leaders will be speaking at the event and there will be an educational component that will enable delegates to expand their networks, exchange best practices and learn about the newest products and services available on the market.

Additional events such as networking drinks and dinners are also being planned to maximise the opportunities for delegates.

Toby Babich, President of VRMA and Breckenridge Resort Managers said: "To be able to announce this event is a really positive sign that our industry is geared up and ready to continue its growth and development. It's fantastic to be working closely alongside the STAA and EHHA in partnership to make this summit a high value event for our industry."
