Forenom becomes Airbnb’s largest Serviced Apartment partner in the Nordics

Significant benefits to Forenom’s and Airbnb’s customers

Airbnb and the Nordic countries’ leading business accommodation provider, Forenom, have formed a partnership. Forenom’s accommodation offering in the Nordic countries will be available globally through the Airbnb service. The agreement will help to diversify and expand Airbnb’s business travel offerings in the Nordic countries.

The cooperation will bring significant benefits to Forenom’s and Airbnb’s customers. There is high demand for accommodation services for business travelers in the Nordic countries. Through the integration, the more than 5,000 apartments and rooms managed by Forenom will become available worldwide for instant booking through the Airbnb service.

– The accommodation market is quite hot in certain parts of the Nordic region and there is a huge lack of high-quality apartments for business travelers. It’s great to be building new accommodation concepts together with Airbnb, such as furnished apartments which fulfil precise quality requirements for business travelers, says Johannes Kangas, CEO of Forenom.

Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone or tablet. Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 65,000 cities and 191 countries.

Forenom’s accommodation offering will be updated in real time on Airbnb’s system, ensuring the ability to instant book. Forenom’s customer service will be responsible for service quality, responding to any possible booking and accommodation disruptions around the clock. Forenom’s service will guarantee that neighbors are not disturbed and that business travelers’ needs are flexibly met.

 

Business travelers also a target market

The new cooperation concept will also aim to serve business travelers. Forenom has been serving business travelers for 17 years and understands the accommodation requirements set by business customers. The Airbnb for Business program was launched in 2014, making it easier to travel for work without sacrificing the comforts of home.
