STAY - Short Term Rental Summit

- Sydney, November, 2020 - 

Welcome to STAY – Short-Term Rental Summit 2020, the first Australian event focused on short stay accommodation.

It will be an action-packed day where all sectors of the industry can meet, learn and network, setting up their year ahead with new relationships, contacts and prospects.

Space has been blocked for mid-November in Sydney. 

While a  lot can change between then and now, given the recent pace of social relaxation, we're confident we'll be able to run a flesh and blood event with live streaming for those who can't make it.

Given what 2020 has thrown at us all, STAY will bring the industry together for the first time and help shape the future of Australia's short term rental industry.

Because final capacity is understandably uncertain at this point, please register your interest in STAY to be put on a non-obligatory wait list and also receive the latest updates. 

More details will be posted soon.  Meanwhile, here's an early overview of the event.

Theme: Growing Pains.

Target Audience: Owners, Property Management Companies, Aggregators, Platforms, Investors, Suppliers, Regulators, Real Estate Agents, Government.

Format: One day conference and marketplace. Tightly run, mix of issues and education. Focus on high profile speakers/companies, potential for workshop.

Program: Packed with news, views, trends, opportunities, case studies and industry leaders.

Focus: Marketing, distribution, branding, quality control, guest, tech, data and regulatory environment.

Marketplace: Latest industry products and innovations from suppliers participating at STAY Marketplace, a trade show which will run throughout the day, complementing the conference.

We're looking for foundation partners for both STAY and other related initiatives we have planned - please get in touch if you'd like to find out more.

STAY is being produced by Martin Kelly, creator of several successful B2B travel industry event brands, including No Vacancy and TRAVELtech.
