A New Way Event Organizers Can Offer Attendees More Accommodation Choices

In 2008, three travelers became the first-ever Airbnb guests when they needed a place to stay for a conference in San Francisco. Ten years later, Airbnb come full circle by introducing a new tool for event organizers to help attendees find the best accommodations.

Airbnb know cities often don’t have capacity to handle sudden or expected surges (resulting from events), so today we’re launching our new Airbnb for Events tool to offer event organizers and conference planners the ability to create an interactive map of Airbnb listings that are near their venues, and embed the map directly on their event website in just minutes.

To get started, event organizers and conference planners simply tell Airbnb about their event. From there, they can create an interactive map of Airbnb listings for their event website to help their attendees find nearby homes. The app also automatically create a personalized landing page for their event on Airbnb.com that event organizers can share with attendees and use to market their event.

While this is the perfect tool for events, Airbnb also working with other companies to showcase the versatility of the interactive listings map -- like event registration and ticketing platforms, event management platforms, wedding platforms, trip planners, and city guides. You can check out a few examples of this tool going live throughout today on sites like Insider, InspirockPicaticRSVPifyTaquilla, and WeddingWire.

Adding Airbnb as a recommended option for events adds more local accommodation, provides amenities hotels can’t, and can help attendees save money. The selection of more than 4.85 million listings in over 191 countries provides both prime locations and the comforts of home, allowing guests to see any city from a local perspective.

Airbnb helps cities manage som of the biggest events on earth, and spreads the economic benefits of events to regular people and gives cities the flexibility to host unprecedented visitor numbers without a single brick being laid.
