Business accommodation provider Forenom has partnered up with online hospitality service Airbnb to serve more and more business travellers across the Nordics.

Forenom’s accommodation offering in the Nordic countries will be available globally through Airbnb, meaning more than 5 000 flats and rooms managed by Forenom will be integrated into Airbnb’s service.

The co-operation concept will aim to serve business travellers. Forenom has been serving business travellers for 17 years, and Airbnb for Business programme was launched in 2014.

“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 travellers,” says Johannes Kangas, Forenom CEO. “It’s great to be building new accommodation concepts together with Airbnb, such as furnished apartments which fulfil precise quality requirements for business travellers.”

Founded in 2000, Forenom accommodates over 90 000 guests across the Nordic countries every year. Currently it operates in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, boasting 25 local offices and more than 350 employees.
