About Bed Surge:

Just how much money could you make by giving up your home when there is a big event in town, such as Cardiff Final 2017 Championship League.

That’s the $64,000 question a new Welsh high-tech start-up – BedSurge.com is determined to help you answer.

BedSurge.com Co-Founders Fabrizio Gulino (Left) and Aadil Mukhtar.

Two Cardiff-based entrepreneurs realised they could capitalise on the value of their city-centre flat, providing housing to continental football fans for over £1,000 a night and thought, “Why stop here and now others must want to do this?”.
Friends, Fabrizio Gulino 23 and Aadil Mukhtar 28, had a eureka moment when they realised that the supply and demand of hotel rooms during the final in June had gone bonkers – the final one of the largest ever sporting events to come to town, meant that their small home made a whopping £3,500 for a mere three-night let.
The two friends invested their new-found wealth into BedSurge.com – a new type of online letting agency that actively seeks out “surges in demand for properties worldwide” and then proactively seeks to attract more properties onto the market, using enthusiastic marketing ranging from door to door knocking to Facebook advertising.
Aadil, a former product consultant at Google, uses his knowledge of dynamic pricing to place the properties in ‘blocks’, and in doing so replicate a hotel’s ability to maximise returns as demand increases.
“Basically,” Aadil explains,“if the stock we have available is selling quickly our technology can calculate the data to work out the true value of the owners living space. Thus, optimising the benefit householders who have given us access to their homes; an individual can’t do this acting alone. This is why our proposition is unique – we achieve the critical mass of properties necessary for dynamic pricing.”
Aadil adds, “While the property owners get to sit back and relax during the event, we handle everything, access to the residence, providing the upscale hotel-equivalent customer service, and insurance protection. It’s a win for us, and a win for the property owners”. I am reaching out to tenants and landlords alike to make sure they don’t miss out on this huge opportunity. Seriously, this could pay for the holiday of a lifetime and make the Welsh capital a winning destination. 

Get in touch with BedSurge.com today. Text BEDS to 88802 or call 0800 689 0770.

Fabrizio, a Sicilian native who speaks fluent Italian and possesses extensive experience in the hospitality industry, will focus on the customer experience aspect while co-founder, Aadil, who earned an MBA at Cardiff University, will be the tech brain behind the venture. The two are determined to secure 400 extra properties to alleviate the overwhelming demand for accommodation during one of Europe’s biggest football extravaganzas!
“I realised what we needed to do” reflected Fabrizio, “we had to create a hotel-like experience for both the property owners and the travellers”.
“For example ” added Fabrizio, “we have a deal with a hotel linen provider so that the guest experience can be as close as possible to staying in an upscale hotel. To get more properties onto the market when a ‘Surge’ occurs we need to householders to give up their often family home, we make that easy and profitable. It’s a niche nobody else is focused on, encouraging families to sublet properties when prices are crazily high”.
When the final guests leave Cardiff on the 4th of June, the focus will immediately shift to whenever and wherever the next lucrative peak in hotel prices will occur worldwide.
Aadil, who was born in Kashmir, has decided to make the UK his home, believing it to be an ideal location to build a global technology company. The tech brain-box announced, “BedSurge.com will be a truly global company ready at the drop of a hat to travel to wherever in the world a pilgrim or a desperate football fanatic requires a roof over their heads (be that shelter a stable or a mansion).”
Already, a Gulf-based financier has expressed interest in investing in the new venture. 
“Simply but “, declared Fabrizio, “This business is driven by simple arithmetic. The Principality stadium holds close to 75,000 spectators while we have little over 5,000 hotel rooms.”
BedSurge.com can be contacted in the following ways and is willing to speak with anyone who could make Cardiff Final 2017 a better experience for travelling sports fans, irrespective of the size of their property or terms of occupancy.

Our goal is to be the World’s Largest Virtual Hotel and it starts right here, in Cardiff.

Review and Pictures from the Recent Introbiz Business Event at Hensol Castle…

  
I had a great time at the Introbiz networking event at Hensol Castle last week and enjoyed listening to the key note speakers.

  
Mark Wright had some very useful business tips and an interesting story and it was great to meet the former Apprentice Winner, who is now working with Lord Sugar. Shame he was a little under the weather and hope is back on top form sometime soon.

Also there was a very inspiring talk from Olympic and World Champion Athlete Jamie Baulch who I managed to grab a selfie with as well as grab a picture with his Olympic silver medal.

  
  
  
The event was great and well done to Paul and Tracey and the team for putting on such a great event.

A major road improving links to Cardiff Bay and easing congestion in the city centre will play a major part in delivering a successful UEFA Champions League final….

The new Eastern Bay Link Road in Cardiff is nearing completion and it’s set to play an important role in the City of Cardiff’s short and long term plans for hosting major events here in Wales.

Please find some info release by the Welsh Government recently which goes in to a bit more detail about this £57m project.

Credit: Welsh Government
A major road improving links to Cardiff Bay and easing congestion in the city centre will play a major part in delivering a successful UEFA Champions League final, Economy Secretary Ken Skates has said, during a recent visit to see the progress on the new £57m Eastern Bay link road project.

The Economy Secretary spoke of the impact such infrastructure projects can have on the local and wider economy, particularly in a city like Cardiff that regularly hosts major sport and cultural events.

The Economy Secretary Ken Skates said:

“It’s great to see the Eastern Bay link road project nearing completion. The new road will provide both Cardiff and Cardiff Bay with a major boost by greatly improving access, connections and journey times.”

“And, of course, in the short term it will contribute to the success of the largest global sporting event of 2017”

– The UEFA Champions League Final being hosted in Cardiff this Summer

Me Skates then went on to add:

“The Welsh Government’s record in attracting major events to Wales is something I am extremely proud of. We already have a strong reputation as a world class host and we will continue to work to build on that, through June’s Champions League final and next year’s Volvo Ocean Race, amongst others”

“These are events which will see hundreds of thousands of extra visitors coming to Wales and to Cardiff in particular and it’s imperative that our infrastructure matches our ambition. The link road will be open to buses and coaches for the duration of the Champions League final weekend – providing quick and easy access to and from Cardiff Bay, and will be open to all vehicles shortly after the event.”

“This summer we look forward to attracting visitors from all over the world and I’m delighted that we will be able to do so with this major link road in place.”

City of Cardiff Council Leader Cllr Phil Bale added:

“I am delighted that the Eastern Bay Link Road will be open to coaches and buses in time for the Champions League Final in June.”

“With many thousands of football fans heading to Cardiff by coach for the game, the new link road will play a major part in helping to ease the flow of traffic around the city during what is sure to be one of the greatest sporting events the capital has ever hosted.”

The Eastern Bay Link Road runs from Rover way to Cardiff bay and will ease conjestion around the Magic Roundabout and Ocean Way area of the City.

Business News for the South East Wales Region

Further to my earlier post about the recent Caerphilly Networking Event (follow link to see earlier post) Simon from Profession Direct provided lots of business News about the New City Deal and how it will affect the South East Region of Wales.  It was too much info too include in my event review so I have decided to list it in this separate blog post.

After welcoming Members / visitors new and old to the Caerphilly Business Networking Event held at Caerphilly RFC.

simon-hughes-profession-direct

Simon provide the networkers with the following business news and info about the aims and objectives of the new Monthly Caerphilly Business Networking Events as well as what is happening in general in the South East Wales region.

On the new Caerphilly Networking Events

“We are looking to create a group of leading local business owners, to help each other navigate through business challenges, create an inclusive networking group and provide introductions to other business looking for their services and assist with network marketing.  This could entail promoting each others articles via social media, Linkedin, Facebook, etc.”

“We are not prescriptive with a strict agenda or ask you to pitch your business to all 40+ guests, there are no rules on business introductions or a restriction on who you can and cant do business with in this room.”

“We want you to get as much out of it as you want.”

“Everyone of you have at least 250+ connections, this means we have the reach of 10,000+ potentials customers and business partners in this room.”

“We intend to meet every few weeks or month (still to be agreed), for a round table meeting to discuss our businesses challenges, provide advice  and assist open doors to other businesses.  You are more than welcome to bring along guests and visitors.”

“Assisting each other grow in this respect should be effective and fun.”

On business in General in the South East Region

An interesting fact is that 96% of businesses joining such an event have proven to generate business and experiened growth in their business over a 12 month period.

Our launch comes at a pivotal time for the South East Wales Region. A time when the launch of the Cardiff Capital Region – City Deal official gets sign off in 2017, subject to sign off by WAG.

The launch of our business networking event, along with the launch / sign off of the Capital deal is a great time for the region boosting, wealth for society, creating opportunities for business and supply chain.

The following local authorities of :

  • Cardiff
  • Torfaen
  • Monmouthshire
  • Caerphilly BC
  • Rhondda Cynon Taff
  • Blaenau Gwent
  • Merthyr Tydfil
  • Bridgend
  • Vale of Glamorgan
  • Newport

Are set to benefit from a total of £1.22 billion, of which £734m has been ring fenced to provide in the inter regional metro, connected tickets, like some of you may have seen in France and other connected / digital cities.

Furthermore WAG are looking to create the world’s first compound Semi- Conductor cluster in South Wales.

This aims to create 25,000 new jobs for the area, boost supply chain

This investment is expected to lever a further £4bn from the Private Sector.Some important statistics:

Population 1.5m in South East Wales

If we were to take South East Wales out of the equation, Wales would lose 75% of GDP.

We hope to see you at the next Caerphilly Business Networking Event, booked for Tuesday 17th of January, 2017 – please click link to register for free online.

See you there.
