Elite Serviced Apartments, which has properties in Yarm, Hartlepool Marina and Thornaby has decided to target markets abroad thanks to UKTI’s Passport to Export, Overseas Market Introduction Service and Export Communications Review.
Elite’s Katrina Rosser explains: “We’ve been successful in providing high quality homes from home for business and leisure travellers in the North East. Working with UKTI has given us the confidence to target overseas markets and the detailed analysis provided helped us to see that Spain was the best market to target.
"As a result we are about to launch our first contract to provide serviced apartment accommodation in both Tarragona and Sitges in Spain, with a combined value of 50,000 Euros.”
Stephen Muir, UK International Trade Adviser added: “UKTI has a range of products designed to help North East businesses export their good and services overseas.
“Elite Serviced Apartments were already well established and respected in the UK and with our support now they are achieving significant contracts in Spain.”
