The Voices of GuestyVal: Meet the Lineup for Guesty’s First Ever Short-Term Vacation Rental Festival
GuestyVal is right around the corner and there is so much to look forward to!
Guesty can’t wait to greet you all on October 8th, for three action-packed days brimming with opportunity and a variety of unique events aimed at fostering business growth and lasting connections between attendees.
From mingling with other prominent members of the industry in the beating heart of Tel Aviv to discovering some of Israel’s most renowned sites, Guesty’s first ever vacation rental festival promises to be one for the books.
But the real value of the event lies in its five-star lineup of speakers, comprised of a colorful array of impressive individuals from across the short-term and vacation rental sectors, all of whom will provide informative and enlightening sessions sure to contribute to the success of your businesses.
So what’s in store?
GuestyVal’s two days of sessions will feature practical lectures on topics such as managing revenue, confronting the challenges of managing multiple properties across multiple locations and utilizing data to make better business decisions.
Play by the Rules
The conference will also offer insight into navigating legal hurdles, like achieving compliance with the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation and dealing with less-than-desirable guests.
Ready. Set. Grow
And, of course, there will be a range of workshops dedicated to fueling business growth and bolstering profitability, from increasing revenue per guest to expanding your listing portfolio to raising capital. We will hear from experts with proven strategies for effective branding and marketing of vacation rental companies.
Behind the Podium
Delivering these valuable insights are representatives of major industry players, including leading booking platforms Airbnb, Booking.com and Rentals United, as well as property management operation companies like Properly, Transparent, PriceLabs, YourWelcome, Beyond Pricing and Safely. Joining them will be entrepreneurs from successful property management companies such as Bongo and Sweet Inn and financial experts from Ernst and Young and TLV Partners.
