The latest on hosting
Last year, Airbnb organized its annual hospitality seminar in Paris, and as announced, the 2016 Open will take place in Los Angeles. Scheduled from the 17 to 19 November, this third edition will take the form of a three day festival including shows, activities and discoveries.
The pre-program is already exciting and includes things like: lectures and workshops on the entrepreneurial host, new types of accommodations, interior design, innovation, etc., as well as personalized tours of the city and a prestigious gala. To top it all off, there will be a host of celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashton Kutcher, Elizabeth Gilbert, James Corden..., talks by the founders of Airbnb (Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nate Blecharczyk), the Director of Hospitality Chip Conley and Host Educators... including myself! Yes, like last year, I was invited to go on stage to share my tips on interior design for seasonal rentals. More will be revealed soon!
The 2016 Open will host 6000 people, so be quick and get your pass for the party!
