The past couple of years have been a whirlwind for those of us in the hospitality tech landscape, and the upshot is that the industry has not only landed on its feet but also established its prominence. In short, the scene is thriving. We’re happy to say at Abode Worldwide, we too have found success during challenging times and have come out the other side stronger, with a fast-growing team and a host of new client wins.
As B2B public relations and content specialists in the global short-term rental, hotel, coliving, later living, student accommodation, and multifamily real estate industry, we sit at the heart of the developing intersection between work, life, and play – a notion that’s undergone much change recently. Leading the way in this transformation have been innovative technology solutions, which we’re proud to be in partnership with.
We partner with game changers, whether they’re in Europe, North America, Asia or Australia. We strongly believe in flexibility and recognize location as a door to opportunity rather than a barrier. Wherever our clients are, or wherever our team members are based – maybe at our central hub in the historic city of Bath, exploring a beautiful country like Italy, or working remotely – we make it our mission to provide consistent and quality service.

Life at Abode Worldwide is shaped by our values – to be honest and open, to raise others up, to think creatively, while working free-range, and developing progressive partnerships.

Just as the sector adapts, and even thrives in the current climate, so do we.
3. Rooted in our heritage
Abode Worldwide is committed to fostering a “feminist culture” in the workplace. We’re a female-led agency that was built from the ground up by our founder Jessica Gillingham. We’re immensely proud of having a woman at the helm. Sadly though, this is still the exception rather than the norm across the industry. Today, women hold only 30% of leadership roles in PR.
We believe this must change. As such, leadership and mentoring are a central part of our agency culture – traits that will stand us in good stead as we continue to grow.
A bright future for hospitality and property technology PR
It’s an exciting time to be a part of Abode Worldwide, as we find ways to help our clients stand out in this busy and dynamic marketplace. The hospitality tech landscape is growing and we are thriving right alongside it. From this success, we are growing and look forward to seeing where this year and beyond takes us and our clients.
