Corporate Housing and Hospitality
The corporate housing and hospitality industries are key to businesses or corporations looking to ensure that a range of needs or wants of client's, staff, customers or business associates are catered for.
Corporate housing generally refers to a company or organisation temporarily renting out a furnished house or apartment to individuals or corporations instead of conventional hotel accommodation or an extended hotel stay. Corporate housing will usually be furnished along with having bedding, utilities and electronics included.
The corporate housing industry trade organisation, the CHPS (Corporate Housing Providers Association), has stated that in 2009 corporate housing revenue was over 1.5 billion pounds and in the last twenty years corporate housing has seen considerable growth in the lodging industry.
Corporate entertaining and hospitality is an invaluable way of developing and maintaining business relationships with clients, prospective customers or staff. Corporate hospitality could include activities, sporting events, banquets or cultural and art events. As the cost of acquiring new customers has risen steadily over recent years compared to the cost of keeping an existing customer, it can be an economical way of maintaining your client base.
Developing successful relationships with your valued clients and creating networking opportunities in which to acquire new customers is an important aspect of maintaining your business. There are many dedicated corporate hospitality companies and event organisers with a wide variety of specialities to choose from.
