Serviced Apartment Awards 2022 winners honoured in London – Sponsored by IMS

By Earl Murtagh-Naughton – Head of Marketing & Brand Development, IMS

The winners of the seventh annual Serviced Apartment Awards celebrated in London this day last week, at a gala dinner presentation at The Montcalm Marble Arch hotel.

The Serviced Apartment Awards, powered by Serviced Apartment News, are known as the ‘Oscars of the industry’. Hosted annually since 2016, these are the only awards created for and by the serviced apartment, aparthotel, extended stay, and short-term rental industries

Around 250 guests attended the black-tie ceremony, hosted by SAN editor George Sell, Boutique Hotel News editor Eloise Hanson, and Mark Harris of the Travel Intelligence Network.

IMS was delighted to be the Official “Communications Partner” for the event and provide a live stream of the event to welcome virtual attendees via Zoom. It gave us great pleasure to be part of this incredible event and to support the sector community.

There were 19 award categories with 15 of them judged by an independent panel consisting of travel buyers, journalists, architects, designers and service providers.

Three categories – Rising Star, Industry Inspiration and Travel Buyer of the Year – were voted for by Serviced Apartment News readers via an online poll. The Outstanding Achievement award was decided by the editorial team at Serviced Apartment News.
