The Apartment Service leads the research into the global serviced apartments industry by Bard Vos

The Apartment Service in close co-operation with The Travel Intelligence Network (www.the-tin.com)  has published 3 issues of the Global Serviced Apartments Industry Report to date.

The first edition came out in February 2008 and contained an overview of "What is a serviced apartment", Industry views and Expert views. We also started the documentation of the total number of serviced apartments worldwide.

In 2008 the total number of apartments uncovered was 452,051.

The second report was published in February 2010 in the time that the world was in economic recession. The sector remained optimistic about the future and this was also highlighted by an increase in the total number of documented serviced apartments worldwide to 491,465. We also started a regional update, looking at the various global regions, the differences in the markets and how serviced apartments are being operated.

The latest report came out in October 2011 and included again a regional update + views of Industry Experts from across the globe about their views and outlook for the sector. And the total number of documented serviced apartments worldwide increased to 669,744!

The first report is only available still in hard copy. The second and latest report are also available in PDF format. To order your free copy for either or all of the reports, please send an email to Bard Vos.

We welcome your feedback on the content of the reports, which can be left by commenting on this blog post. And of course also any suggestions for future editions, topics to write about, areas to research etc.

We look forward to an engaging conversation,
