Launching in 2008, Airbnb has grown to become one of the world’s largest and most successful hospitality companies in providing personalized accommodations sourced from the homes of everyday people. The community-driven platform rivals the hotel industry in offering rooms, apartments and homes along with unique travel experiences. With more than 4 million listings in countries across the globe, Airbnb’s online marketplace supports a vast clientele of travelers looking to explore their world in new and exciting ways.
Their launch of Airbnb Experiences in 2016 aimed to expand their reach to include a range of guided activities for travellers to purchase during their trips. The program was built out with a small selection of Hosts who created custom packages based on their expertise. Airbnb Experiences’ initial success allowed for the expansion to now include more than 1,000 cities worldwide.
