Convention and Visitors Bureaus provide a wealth of leads specific to the events industry.
Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is the largest association of meeting professionals in the world. Connections here can be priceless.
American Express Global Business Travel has a Supplier Partner Network that can position your brand to capitalize on the business traveler market.
Healthcare Recruitment Agencies are goldmines for attaining direct leads of healthcare professionals traveling on assignment. (i.e. AYA Healthcare, Triage Staffing, etc.)
Student and Faculty Housing departments are best to make an inquiry. Plan to house tenured and visiting faculty, post-doctoral candidates, research assistants, graduate level and international students.
Corporations with Government Contracts are great places to create direct book partnerships.
State Governments provide accommodation and relocation funds for displaced homeowners due to road infrastructure projects under the Department of Transportation
Military & Federal Government
SAM.gov (System for Awards Management) is a great resource. Get your entity registered to engage with the federal government through contracts.
GSA (Government Services Administration) Lodging Per Diems are searchable by location via Google and display the nightly lodging rates for your area that government employees receive; typically resulting in a higher ADR and longer occupancy.
DOD (Department of Defense) oversees the BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing) for off base military housing. Tip: Officers receive a higher housing allowance!
Relocation Agencies & Specialists
Global Mobility Solutions curated a list of associations and memberships that would be beneficial to look into and/or join to get acquainted with key players in the space in order to add value to their clients. You can find the list HERE.
Insurance & Disaster Relief
Insurance Housing Providers provide limitless opportunities for furnished accommodations partners. Damage to homes (fire, flood, termites, etc.) qualify homeowners for temporary housing accommodations.
FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Association) Individuals and Households Program (IHP) provides financial and direct temporary housing services to eligible individuals and households affected by a disaster. Note: Become a FEMA approved provider AFTER you register with SAM.gov.
Cosmetic Patient Recovery enables upscale and luxury class accommodations providers to partner with cosmetic and plastic surgeons to provide comfortable stays with amenities that their clients appreciate.
Patient Recovery Home Health Services provide multiple bed facilities (typically houses) that command $7K+ per month per bed. This is a specialized, yet very lucrative niche of furnished accommodations.
