Experient, the source for integrated meeting and event solutions, partnered with Airbnb, the world’s leading community-driven hospitality company. The alliance will allow Experient clients the ability to include Airbnb as an option for meeting and business event attendees.
“Airbnb is a great option for our clients to supplement their traditional accommodation needs in destinations where there is a lack of availability,” said Michael Guerriero, division president, Experient. “This cooperative will provide a solution for those organizations to keep registration open and provide additional lodging options to people wanting to attend meetings in cities facing high levels of compression while continuing to honor and protect contracted blocks.”
As demand continues to exceed supply in many destinations over peak convention time periods, this relationship will also give Experient’s clients an easy way to report on Airbnb lodging units booked by their event attendees.
“Airbnb’s mission is to help people feel like they can belong anywhere—whether in town for a convention or for a leisure trip, Airbnb will help people live like a local,” said Michael Brous, senior business development lead, Airbnb. “We are excited for the opportunity to help Experient expand their service offerings by providing more choices through our dedicated business booking platform.”
