Short-Term Vacation Rental Festival

So what’s in store?

Manage Smart

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, 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.

“Guesty has become one of the premier property management systems in a very short time, and we’re very excited to be a part of their first-ever conference, to meet their user community in person and find out what’s in store for future!”
