Who are we?
We are a pro-active group of serviced apartment operators throughout the Netherlands. We were first established by a small group of founding members in 2010 representing almost 500 apartments. Our members are expected to represent aproximately 1000 properties by the end 2012. We plan to expand our membership further in the years to come. As you will see from our member list, our members range from large international companies to small independent operators so we truly represent the full cross-section of the industry in the Netherlands. We operate in a very friendly and inclusive way and most of our members play a very active part in the Association.
What we do?
Represent the serviced apartment industry and make sure the members benefit from our joint effort. We hold Board Meetings (all members invited) multiple times per year to talk through current issues covering everything from taxes, regulation, safety issues to industry standards. Members find these meetings extremely valuable to exchange views with others in the industry and work to a association wide communal opinion. The board also discusses specific challenges and the overall future strategy for the Association. On a marketing/PR base we promote the use of serviced apartment as a vauluable service for travelers staying for an extended period.
