Get Ready for the 2023 Short Stay Summit in London

Get Ready for the 2023 Short Stay Summit in London



For local inhabitants and businesses, the disaster is also economic. Florida is a big travel market. With great beaches and world-famous attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, the state attracts many families who book a vacation rental for their stay. Cities like Orlando and Kissimmee usually rank high in market size for vacation rental revenues.

Attention short-term rental managers and Airbnb hosts! Mark your calendars for the 27th of April 2023, as the leading European business conference, Short Stay Summit, for short-term rental property managers and owners will be held at Old Billingsgate in London. Organized by the European Holiday Home Association (EHHA), UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA), and the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA), this event promises to be an exceptional experience for industry professionals.


The event is organized by the European Holiday Home Association (EHHA), UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA), and the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA). With their wealth of experience in the short-term rental industry, they bring together industry stakeholders to expand networks, exchange best practices, and learn from one another.
