Supporting the development of short-term accommodation in the UK

 

Our mission

The UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA) was founded in March 2017 with a clear purpose in mind: ensuring greater cooperation to tackle common industry challenges and seizing shared opportunities in this growing sector. To this end, we are seeking to work with all stakeholders towards a stable and supportive regulatory environment that promotes the UK as a global leader in the provision of short-term accommodation.
