Katrin and Lisanne headed north last week… here’s what they got up to:
It is always fun to pack your bags and go and explore something new, and last week Lisanne and I headed to Hamburg for a trade meeting of different serviced apartments, an awards ceremony, and the chance to meet up with some old friends and make some new ones. First we stopped off at the Superbude, one of our favourite spots in Hamburg where we met up with Jörg, drank a few beers, exchanged some ideas and ate some great pizza… not a bad start to the week! If you are ever going to Hamburg, make sure you check the Superbude out.
On Thursday the serious work began, as our friends at Apartmentservice had put together two days of workshops, meetings and also tours through other serviced apartment houses. We met a lot of interesting people and learned quite a bit… it is always great to talk to people and find out what is going on in the business, and it is fair to say I came home inspired.
In the evening though it was time for the So!Apart Awards. The Circus Apartments were nominated in two categories… and were extremely proud to have been ranked in the top ten for both “Klein und Fein” and “Neu und Besonders”. Of course, we were very impressed with the winners – The Red from Düsseldorf and The Vision Apartments… and we congratulated them on their achievement.
Altogether we had a lovely evening (perhaps a little but too much wine) with great food and super company. Thanks of course have to go to the team at Apartmentservice for the two days of workshops and the party itself, and we are already looking forward to next year.
