Only a week has gone by but It seems like a lifetime ago that we closed the final curtain on The Scale Rentals Show 2023.

The Scale Family team had an amazing time and we hope all of you who attended and shared the experience enjoyed the two day event.

From the start of Day One, the conference centre was buzzing, with two floors of keynote sessions, incredible sponsor stands and networking happening inside and outside on the terrace.

Over 300 attendees converged each day from over 27 countries and greeted each other like old friends, which of course is what we are in our close knit short-term rentals industry. We might be based on the other side of the globe, but when we get a chance to meet we do it in great style.

Scale Rentals Show: Day One

The fabulous Kristina Sprindyte and Jamie Lane from AirDNA kicked off Day One with a session that revealed the data behind the stories that shape our STR industry.

Throughout the day, attendees were treated to sessions and guest panels from successful property managers sharing their experiences and industry specialists sharing their take on a diverse range of topics, including SEO, social media, pricing management, scaling without a million dollar budget, and of course the future of our STR industry.
