Our rebranding to Abode Worldwide

Our team is incredibly proud to reveal our new branding and name, which reflect our expanding global reach and growing client base across the lodging and hospitality technology sectors.

We were founded in 2017 and initially served the innovative short-term rental technology sector. Our scope rapidly broadened during a phenomenal growth period (where we achieved a record revenue increase of 400% in 2021 with a fivefold increase in headcount) to working with brands across North America and Europe that sit at the intersection between hospitality and property including hotels, multifamily, and the ‘living’ property sectors.

Abode Worldwide’s mission is to supercharge the authority and credibility of global tech pioneers transforming the way we work, rest, and play. Our team does this by combining deep industry understanding and an extensive set of media and influencer relationships with continual fresh insight.

Leading our agency is CEO & Founder, Jessica Gillingham. She commented: “It’s an incredibly exciting time to be in the lodging and hospitality sectors with a greater merging of hotel, short-term rental, and real estate. In addition to our core sectors of hospitality and property, there are exciting developments happening right now in all ‘living’ verticals, such as student housing, multifamily, and coliving -, particularly when embracing technology.

“We see our role as helping fuel that change by closely working with the companies behind the transformation, to raise their profiles. As part of that journey, we will also be expanding our client and talent base outside of North America and Europe, supported by remote-first working culture.”

As part of the rebrand, we’ve also launched the first of a series of technology reports, Abode Worldwide Tech Index Report: short-term rentals edition – download it here.
