Relocation Impact: Royal Wedding and Temporary Housing

Posted by Mark Iredale, Global Manager, Supply Chain Management

Are you caught up in last minute travel arrangements to London for the weekend of the Royal wedding? Many people will have blocked out Saturday 19th May in their London calendars, and the capital will be swarming with even more visitors than usual; Prince Harry will be marrying Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle and a few hours later, Wembley stadium will be welcoming 90,000 football fans for the FA Cup Final.

What does this mean for international relocation?

Companies that need to find temporary accommodation around that time may find themselves rueing the decision not to book earlier. It’s always worthwhile thinking about high profile public events and how these may affect the temporary housing market.

Checklist for mobility managers

Here’s just a few questions you’ll need to be able to answer:

  • When do your assignees need the accommodation?
  • To what extent do you want assignees to own the selection process?
  • How can you get the best possible rates without compromising on service quality?
