GuestyVal 2018: What Did You Miss?
We Came. We Saw. We Managed.
For the first time ever this year, GuestyVal has come and gone – but the feeling is palpable that a new tradition has just begun.
Its purpose? To champion the ideas and businesses that are driving the short-term property management industry forward. And while we’re thrilled that this went according to plan, what we didn’t expect was just how much fun the entire event would be.
This was the first conference hosted by Guesty, bringing over 200 guests together for two days of educational sessions, one day of sightseeing, and endless opportunities to network and grow.
It provided a packed agenda, and invited ideas to the table that kept our attendees primed for a carousel of interesting topics, as well as an intimate setting to foster dialogue between them – fueled by a constant flow of coffee, gourmet meals, and sunshine. It ended in a buzz of conversations inspired by a clearer picture of how all the diverse elements of property management work together to help each other improve and succeed. And, it confirmed Guesty’s position as innovators, facilitators, and leaders in the industry.
We saw partnerships and ideas formed, products and potential challenged, and many people from many different backgrounds openly debating about the future of property management. And that’s exactly what we hoped for.
As a relatively new industry, short-term property management has already grown from a narrow idea to a massive and complex ecosystem. Here at Guesty, our respect for the vast potential of property management runs deep; we aren’t only working for the success of our own product – we want success for the entire industry. And at GuestyVal, we wanted to create the environment that will allow the industry and all of its players, both minor and major, to maximize potential.
When we asked our guests if we accomplished our goal, the answer was a resounding yes.
We’re honored to embrace our role as a driver of progress for the entire industry and although the success of this GuestyVal is still fresh, we’re already so excited for the GuestyVals to come.
Hope to see you there!
