UK: ReloQuest was crowned the winner of a short-term rental category at the fourth annual Serviced Apartment Awards on Thursday night, at a gala dinner presentation at the Park Plaza Riverbank in London.
The temporary housing platform, which provides an independent resource to global mobility clients and individuals in need of sourcing temporary housing, service apartments, and hotels worldwide, won the award for “Best Short-Term Rental Platform / Operator”.
ReloQuest beat off competition in the category from Air Agents, BridgeStreet, Maison Privee, The Plum Guide and ServicedApartments.nl.
More than 350 international guests attended the black-tie ceremony, hosted by actor and comedian Les Dennis, to see the winners of the 18 Serviced Apartment Awards pick up their prizes. The awards were judged by an independent panel consisting of travel buyers, journalists, architects, designers and service providers, and attracted more than 300 entries from around the world.
Two categories – Rising Star and Industry Inspiration – were voted for by Serviced Apartment News readers via an online poll. And two new categories – Best Travel Management Company and Best Agent or Relocation Management Company were introduced to acknowledge the major role that corporate travel plays in supporting the serviced apartment sector.
Piers Brown, CEO of International Hospitality Media, the publisher of ShortTermRentalz and Serviced Apartment News, said: “It was a great night for all involved, and very encouraging to see such engagement from the corporate travel community. Congratulations to all the winners and shortlisted entries.”
