Airbnb joins the meetings scene

Airbnb has announced on its website that it has started offering online tools to find meetings spaces and teambuilding activities.

The online service, which began trading in the US in 2008, says it has seen “exponential growth” in companies using Airbnb for Work. It goes on to say that, to date, 700,000 companies have had employees sign up and book with Airbnb for Work. More than 300,000 are engaged with Airbnb to help manage their travel.

A statement on Airbnb’s website said: "Offering unique ways to travel for work will remain core to Airbnb for Work, but we estimate only 25% of employees within a company travel for work.

"With Airbnb for Work’s new expansion into team-building experiences, homes for offsites and meetings, and relocations, we now have an opportunity to bring the magic of Airbnb to the rest of the workforce."
