    Airbnb: A home away from home

    In a presentation made prior to the 2016 RICS Inaugural World Built Environment Forum, Chip Conley, Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality Strategy traces the growth of Airbnb from 2008 when it was founded.

Today, Airbnb is operating in two million homes and 34,000 cities in 190 countries.
