In this feature we are pleased to publish an interview that we did with Asim Erturk from Londonist DMC, which is the UK's leading destination management centre company, offering the widest choice of tailor made services in every area of London as well as other cities in the UK.

 

When did your company start and why did you feel there was the need to open such a company?

 

Londonist Dmc was established in 2013. The Managing Director first arrive to London 10 years ago and found that London lacked accommodation services. There had been a lack in customer service and not enough flexibility with bookings were accepted. Before the establishment of Londonist, the managing director founded a business called United Students of London between 2010-2013. He then expanded the business and wanted to focus on accommodation. Hence, why he found the need to open a company offering excellent customer service with , flexibility, accessibility, quality and reliability.

 

What are the aims of Londonist DMC?

 

Londonist Dmc, with years of experience and a student friendly approach aims to provide excellent customer service to students seeking for private accommodation services.
