Airbnb and the Future of Home Sharing

5:30 p.m. | Wednesday, August 1, 2018

SPUR and Airbnb invite you to a drinks reception and discussion on the future of home sharing. SPUR CEO, Gabriel Metcalf will be in conversation with Chris Lehane, Airbnb's Head of Global Policy and Communications. 

The intense growth of home-sharing platforms such as Airbnb has sparked debate on how cities should police short-term rentals in order to enable local economies to flourish while preserving the character and quality of communities. Home-sharing regulation is changing on an almost daily basis, with unprecedented action being taken in cities around the world.

How is the future of home sharing being shaped by these new regulations? How is Airbnb partnering with local municipalities to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes? And how does a leading tech company approach growth on a local and global level?

Join us at Airbnb’s San Francisco headquarters for this special evening event, for SPUR business members only.
