Amsterdam, Netherlands, April 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Htel Apartments is proud to announce that the British-based Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP) has endorsed the foundation of an independent branch in the Netherlands. The ASAPNL hopes to establish a set of standards for serviced apartments and their operators in the Netherlands.
The purpose of the association is to raise the profile of serviced apartment operators through increased awareness whilst maintaining the highest standards. The ASAPNL will be collaborating with different organs such as expat centers, local governments and HR departments of several multinationals to create a communication platform between these different branches. Furthermore the ASAPNL will provide direction, regulation and advice and will be assisting consumers by creating a quality standard for the serviced apartments industry.
The ASAPNL members started gathering in 2010 in an attempt to create a more professional atmosphere for the sector. They wanted to create a discussion platform where they could share information on regulation, tourism taxation and marketing challenges. According to Htel Apartments, one of the founding members, this forum greatly helped to exchange views on the industry and debate issues.
The ASAPNL currently represents approximately 500 serviced apartments. The organization estimates to represent approximately 1000 properties by the end of 2012. The ASAPNL plans to expand its membership further and wants to evolve into the central discussion platform for serviced apartments providers within the Netherlands.
