Unpacking the big Airbnb announcement of “Trips”


I manage Urban Adventures, the business in the world that most closely represents the direction that Airbnb have announced as their next area to tackle in hospitality – their “Experiences”, trips or as they say – “immersions”.

If you missed it, Airbnb have just launched their newest and actually their first new product since they started out as a share economy option for home sharing. Of course the ride since then has been a meteoric one with the company now valued at around $30B.
