Anglo Educational Services
Steve Lowy has been connected with hospitality and tourism his whole working career. From managing a restaurant in London in his late teens to studying Hospitality and Tourism, Steve is very passionate about the sector. Steve has an unusual mix of experience in both tech and hotel management, starting his career managing a 500 bedded Backpackers Hostel in London, and then going on to create his own brand of Budget Hotels (London, Brighton and Moscow!) that were famous for innovative marketing, tech and support of young people wanting to work in the industry. From there, Steve set up Umi Digital, a design and technology agency solely working in hospitality and travel, which today works with over 150 companies in the UK, Europe and Africa
His current focus is as CEO of Anglo Educational Services and The Residence Apartments. AES is a full-service study abroad operator offering a suite of academic service alongside over 300 student apartments in Central London with another 60 being added in 2020. The Residence Apartments are a collection luxury served apartments with two locations open in Marylebone and Shoreditch and two openings in 2020 in Tower Hill and Hoxton.
Steve is also Chairman of BETA (British Educational Travel Association) and also regularly delivers lectures at Hotel Schools in the UK and Europe and remains passionate about promoting the industry to young people. He is an avid traveller and chef and believes that travel can be a force of good, in the current global turbulent political times we live in.

“There is a great balance of fun sessions and within a short space of time everyone is happy to engage and chat to each other and there is no time to feel left out as the energy is infectious. The mix of tours and alternative sessions; meditation, walking tours etc is a great way to get everyone talking and relaxed. My favourite is the morning meditation as it really energised everyone and broke down some barriers, the insights from some market leaders is also very useful and gives a valuable inside look at what’s going on.Peter "Harry" Harris, SUSD, 2019
