Tom here – the administrator of airhostsforum.com! Back when Cyn and I started hosting in 2014, I’ve always dreamt of going to a hosts only conference as a way to get to know other hosts and to get more information about this space. I know Airbnb hosts their conference once a year, but I feel like in 2019, we as hosts have options when it comes to the various platforms. Having choices is a good thing.
I was recently talking a vendor who has brought up the idea of perhaps hosting a conference for all the forum members and all the hosts in the world. At first it was something was less interesting to me than attending a conference (think of all the work in planning a conference!). However, after doing some research, I realize that there isn’t a conference just for regular, part-time hosts like me and you. Therefore, I’d like to get the community’s opinion on whether or not they would find it useful to have a conference just for hosts.
There are a few aims for such a conference:
Connect with other like minded hosts in person to talk about various time/money hacks, just like the reason you joined this forum
Attend sessions for hosts on various topics such as (but not limited to):
– How to plan a renovation in preparation for an Airbnb
– How to expand operation (ie. purchasing another property to do Airbnb)
– What other platforms are out there besides Airbnb and how well they work
– How to use technology to help with making hosting easier (ie. products, apps, services)
Take a bit of time off in Vegas and have some fun
Hosts, if you can take a minute and fill out the following poll, that will help us here at airhostsforum.com possibly making this happen!
Also, what topics would you like to see at such a conference? I’d be interested in learning more about what other hosts are interested in from an information perspective. After all, the whole point of the forum is to provide information to hosts! Thanks everyone!
