CAP Worldwide Director Jo Layton contributed to a recent BTN Europe article, "Staying Power", which examined the relative strengths of serviced apartments when utilised for accommodation solutions during the COVID-19 crisis.
The article debates the raised profile of the serviced apartment sector and the potential perceived opportunity to further extend the usage of serviced accommodation post-COVID-19.
The discussion focusses on the drive for an agreed global 'minimum' standard for serviced accommodation. This would provide the necessary assurances required by all purchasing stakeholders that the accommodation they use is safe and secure, clean and legal.
SAFFAA, The Serviced Apartment/Accommodation Forum for Assessment and Accreditation, has recently announced the formation of a working party to compile the first global minimum standard for serviced accommodation to be immediately followed by an agnostic global register of assessors and accreditors.
This coming together of operators, agents, assessors and accreditors will ensure serviced accommodation providers can deliver a global minimum standard to the industry.
