The lines are blurring in the short-term rental industry between vacation rentals, serviced apartments and the wants and needs of both leisure and business travellers. At Abode PR, we understand the nuances and challenges of running a successful property management business in the short term rental space.
Having a robust media relations, thought leadership strategy and content marketing strategy is fundamental for standing out from the crowd.
Technology and innovation drive the travel industry and now also the vacation and short-term rental industry. Over the last few years, startups have emerged with solutions for property managers, owners and guests to better experience services, processes and operations.
It’s a busy marketplace and many tech businesses benefit from the increased credibility, clarity of message and visibility that working with us brings.
PropTech is a collective term used to define startups offering technologically innovative products or new business models for the real estate markets. PropTech companies are driven by a desire to improve and transform the industry by adapting digital solutions to both age-old and modern problems.

Great experience working with Jessica on PR for Touch Stay. She understood our goals instantly and translated that in to a workable PR plan.
