RESTON, Va., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's Serviced Apartment Summit Europe in London, BridgeStreet will focus their attention on unifying the supplier community across the Extended-stay, 7+ Night sector. Once thought too disparate to bring together, BridgeStreet is capitalizing on their 20+ years in the Extended-stay space and focusing on the broad unification of the industry through technology. It is a simple move that's changing how business travels and redefines what that experience can and should be. As such, BridgeStreet has created the first unified, trusted, global community of curated, extended-stay supply.
For EMEA, and clients globally, BridgeStreet.com enables all clients to stay where they want to stay and book how they want to book – guaranteed and in real time. At SAS Europe, BridgeStreet will reinforce their commitment to the sector's clients and supplier community.
"The Serviced Apartment Summit is a long-standing event that gives our industry a chance to coalesce around yearly challenges. The past several years have been transformative, especially as the supplier community scramble to keep up with demand. There's a growing cultural evolution around business travel and it's up to us to understand these shifts and adapt quickly. For BridgeStreet, our solution is unification. It's the one move that can definitively propel our industry forward." Sean Worker, President and CEO
