Two of the world’s leading associations for serviced apartments and corporate housing have announced plans to form a global advisory panel to help drive recognition, safety and duty of care for this worldwide industry.
The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP), which operates predominantly in the UK and Europe, along with the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA), which has a wide presence in the U.S., Canada and South America, are formalising an international advisory panel to open communication and create a global voice for the industry. ASAP and CHPA welcome other trade associations in this sector to collaborate and join these conversations.
James Foice, Chief Executive of ASAP, said: “The concept of a global alliance stems from the fact that we’re operating on a global level. ASAP represents member organisations in 18 countries worldwide. Support for and awareness of accreditation continues, and we now undertake activity in New Zealand, Australia, South America and Asia. Given our increasingly broad geographical spread, we’re becoming more and more involved with associations that have similar goals to ASAP. We felt it right to try and align ourselves to help further those ambitions.”
