UK: The entries deadline for the 2023 Shortyz Awards – the gold standard awards for the global short-term / vacation rental industry – has been extended until Wednesday 15 March [23:59 GMT].
At the conclusion of next week’s entries deadline, the judging period will commence before the award shortlists are announced in early April. This year’s Shortyz Awards in-person awards ceremony will then take place on Wednesday 26 April at ArcelorMittal Orbit [designed by Sir Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond] in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The awards, which have become known as the ‘Oscars of the industry’, set out to recognise excellence amongst industry peers, highlight innovation and industry best practice, reward achievement, and celebrate startup technology.
The 2023 Shortyz are open to everyone from hosts to property managers, booking platforms, PMS, channel managers, suppliers, camping / glamping companies and more. It will once again take place the day before the Short Stay Summit, which is moving to Old Billingsgate for 2023.
Having received more than 350 entries from around the world in 2022, we are making it even easier for global short-term rental professionals to enter as many of the 20 categories as they wish at no cost, whether you are nominating yourself, your company or an industry colleague. We’re also adding a new category for 2023 – the Rentalpreneur Award – to showcase individual hosts and / or independent property managers who make money from renting out holiday properties and educate new hosts.
The Shortyz are free to enter and there is no limit to the number of categories you can apply for across the 20 awards on offer.
