Next steps for the 2024 Shortyz Awards

Worldwide: Almost 400 entries were received from around the world for the 2024 Shortyz Awards, following the closure of the submissions period last week.

Professionals from across the global short-term / vacation rental industry had from the start of December until last week [13 March] to submit their no-cost entries across the 20 Shortyz categories, which included the Team of the Year award – a new category for 2024.

In total, people entered the awards from 29 countries and 26 per cent of the entries were from people or companies who had never entered before. In the fifth year of organising the Shortyz, it means that more than 1,700 entries have now been received accumulatively since the debut of the awards in 2020.

The Shortyz now move to the next stage, when an esteemed panel of expert judges will assess all of the entries to assemble 20 shortlists, which will be unveiled in early April. The companies and individuals who are successful in making shortlists will then enter into a short voting period – the award winners will then be determined by a 50:50 split between the judge scores and the public vote.

The 2024 Shortyz Awards will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at Skyline London in Tower Hill on Wednesday 23 April, as the industry comes together to recognise excellence amongst industry peers, highlight innovation and industry best practice, reward achievement, and celebrate startup technology.

More details surrounding the event will be released in due course. Tickets can be bought at this link.

STRz appreciates the efforts that all entrants have gone to for their submissions, resulting in the highest quality entries submitted to date, and wishes the best of luck to everyone who entered this year.
