One of our missions here at VRTECH is to provide a platform for and spotlight burgeoning startups in the vacation rental industry. And, we also want to help people in the short-term rental sector connect and learn from each other. 

VRTECH Pitch Nights are one way to achieve this. At these events, we aim to establish a supportive network for professionals to come together and share timely, practical and inspirational knowledge, developing the pillars which will shape the future of our industry.

Over the following couple of months, we will be holding not one, but two Pitch Nights where young startups can pitch their ideas for 8 minutes to a crowd of short-term rental professionals. 

These events are great fun for all involved and, if you’re a startup founder, a great opportunity to practise your pitch.  

If you have a startup in the vacation rental industry and would like to get involved, we are currently taking applications. Attending our event and pitching is free and totally worth it – you never know who you will meet! 

When and where can you join the next VRTECH Pitch Night? 

To make sure that startups, property managers and industry experts can attend our Pitch Nights, we organise them around notable vacation rental events. 

Since you’re already in town, why not join us for a night of startups pitches and networking?

Our two upcoming Pitch Nights will be organised around the following events: 

VRTECH Pitch Night at Short Stay Summit – 13th September, London, UK

Update: Unfortunately, the London Pitch Night has been cancelled. Keep an eye out for future VRTECH events. The Málaga Pitch Night is still on!

Short Stay Summit is organised by three vacation rental associations – EHHA, STAA and VRMA. It takes place in Tobacco Dock, in the heart of East London’s business district. 

This year’s edition will be dedicated to celebrating the resilience of the vacation rental industry. The event will be filled with educational talks and networking opportunities, drawing in vacation rental professionals from all over the world.
