Simon Lehmann on a main stage as a speaker

"Simon is always fundamental"

“As the Godfather of the Industry, Simon is always a fundamental help to get you in touch with who really matters in the alternative accommodation space. His experience is unparalleled as well as his take and his pulse on the industry. Simon’s ability to take the stage is second to none and I’m grateful for his contribution in taking the Vacation Rental World Summit to the next level.”

Antonio Bortolotti, Host

Vacation Rental World Summit

 

"His keynote was a masterpiece"

“Few people could frame the global business case for flexible rentals like Simon Lehmann, and none with his experience and credibility. And great presentation style.

 

His keynote for the Flexible Rentals Investment Conference was a masterpiece of historical context, current data, up-to-the-minute deal information and strategies and partners for success. Our multifamily industry audience love him and eagerly sought him out afterward for more information.

 

Mostly highly recommended.”

Steve Lefkovits, Executive Producer

FLEX CONFERENCE, JOSHUA TREE CONFERENCE GROUP

 

"I wished it were longer"

“Simon’s keynote was the opening of the ASSC’s 2019 Conference. It was the ASSC’s biggest-ever conference to date, looking at Self-Catering: a Bright Global Future. What better way to open the conference.  

 

Simon’s presentation was inspiring, amusing and thought provoking and its clear that he’s a key leader in the field, with unparalleled passion and knowledge about the industry.

Feedback from attendees praised the presentation and content, with one who “wished it was longer.”

There is no doubt that our members would have taken away some key messages for consideration.”

Fiona Campbell, Chief Executive

ASSC
