The Apartment Service exhibits at The Business Travel Conference by Bard Vos

TBTC 17/18 Oct 2011 – Attended by Tess Delve, Business Development Executive and Helen Richardson, Business Development Executive.

 

Helen and I had a fantastic exhibition we had a great stand set up just as you entered the conference. The workshop and seminars went smoothly and were well attended. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, drink and sweets provided especially Helen and I.

 

We met lots of superb new (and current) corporate contacts and we got the opportunity to get to know them well at the dinner dance. We formed a new group of leading ladies called the ‘Prosecco Club’ and spent a fun packed few hours eating drinking and dancing. We all regrouped back at our stand for lunch on the second day and made a promise to keep in touch.

 

The second day was even better than the first as people were really getting into the swing of it. There was a real buzz in the air. Over all we really enjoyed it and we feel it will be very beneficial.

The Apartment Service at the ERC Workforce Symposium in Denver by Bard Vos

ERC Denver Oct 2011 – Attended by Melanie Degand, Director of Sales and Sara Calvo, Sales Manager.

 

After much hilarity and hysteria regarding our visa applications (or lack of) at T5 Heathrow, we finally boarded and were on our way to The Worldwide ERC in Denver, Colorado.

Our exhibition booth attracted many admirers where we showcased our “Straight from the Horse’s Mouth” Serviced Apartment Industry report 2011 written by our very own Charlie McCrow.

 

 

It was great to meet up with industry friends and put names to faces with some of our overseas clients.With our intentions to help the US relocate clients to Europe and the rest of the world as an agent and provider, we forged some great new relationships in the American relocation and mobility market.We intend to bring back a slice of Denver’s excellent customer service which was outstanding and want to extend this to our own clients when helping them to find temporary serviced apartment solutions.

The Apartment Service Go Karting with ITM by Bard Vos

The Apartment Service was represented last week on Thursday (13th October) at a Go Karting Event organised by the Institute for Travel and Meetings (ITM). Although we were tipped as the favourites, we narrowly missed a podium spot. Our team however with Jostein Smeby, Sean Briggs, Oyinda Kasumu and captain Mario Erro (alias the Super Mario Brothers and Sister) had a great evening and "we like to thank the ITM for inviting us."

Sean, Oyinda, Jostein and Mario looking the part!!

Welcome to Jostein Smeby - strengthening the Account Development Team by Bard Vos

Jostein has recently joined The Apartment Service as an Account Development Executive.

I’m a 40yr old Norwegian, with a background as a Real Estate Agent, Sales consultant, Team leader, district Manager, Key Account Manager(in Norway) and now I’m a Account Development Executive in TAS. I’m a person who likes challenges, so I should thrive here in TAS. On a personal note, September is a very important month for me, since I then join up with my father and brother and go hunting wild reindeer in the Norwegian mountains. This year I got a really wonderful hunting experience and a pretty big buck....

Welcome Jostein!
