On Thursday 14th November, SABA, the UK’s largest and most frequented serviced apartments networking event, took place at the recently expanded SilverDoor offices. The HBAA’s Executive Director, Juliet Price, was invited to speak about the serviced apartment community.
The event was an opportunity for serviced apartment agents and providers to meet socially. Getting to know one another, exchange contacts and develop business relationships were the priorities of the night. With over 200 guests present, it was the largest attendance for a SABA event to date.
Minister of State for Europe, the Right Honourable David Lidington MP, stood alongside Managing Director Marcus Angell, Executive Commercial Director Chris Gee, and Business Partnerships Director Stuart Winstone, to officially open the expanded offices.
As guests collected their name badges on arrival, the question ‘when your clients book a serviced apartment, what do you think is the most important facility for it to have out of the following?’ was posed. The results were conclusive with ‘Free Internet’ taking 93 votes, ‘Full Kitchen’ taking 91, and ‘Washing Machine’ lagging behind with a meagre 12 votes. This wasn’t just the opinion of the UK audience, either.
International property operators from Belgium and the Netherlands, who were attending the event for the first time, were greeted with a warm welcome. Director of essa Consultancy Richard Majewski led the series of speeches that followed. Marcus Angell took to the stage to welcome everybody to SilverDoor. Juliet Price then spoke about the serviced apartment community, with Marcus Angell finally introducing David Lidington to regale the audience with stories of his European trips and business development experience.
