About Us


The Book Direct Network is brought to you by the team behind The Book Direct Show – the only event dedicated to short-term rentals and hotels and direct booking strategies.

Book Direct Network

With so much uncertainty in planning events during a pandemic, we took the decision in October 2020 to develop a new platform where owners and managers can continually learn from a community of industry experts.

As per the very nature of the #bookdirect movement, it is imperative that we did not host this community on Facebook or any other social media platform where we all have to continually abide by external rules, algorithms and changes.

Spearheaded by event director Damian Sheridan (LinkedIn), our mission is to provide the leading platform for professional property managers to retain control of their business and reduce their overall reliance on OTAs.

We hope you enjoy it.
