But what we haven't told you is that the design conference was actually here in this theatre, right here at the Masonic.
In fact, you'll often find these kinds of kinds of home setups already in place when you're searching for places to stay overseas. Launched out of San Francisco in 2008, the platform now lists more than 4.5 million places to stay in 81,000 cities worldwide, but Chesky said it can go farther. With their Experience feature, people can see a different side to a destination through handcrafted activities run by locals and also find recommendations to the local restaurants (in select countries).
The company is also offering a new service called Airbnb Plus which starts from today. As Airbnb pushes itself to be a community-driven product, it's not surprising that a huge event would show up at a huge venue including those same super-hosts.
The Airbnb Host Community now includes 4.5 million places to stay around the world.
The new tools were first made available for hosts on Thursday, but guests will be able to access them this summer.
Until now, Airbnb has offered three categories of accommodation: "Shared Space", which could be the original concept of an airbed in someone's living room, "Private Room", which means you'll have the host around but a degree of seclusion, and "Entire Home" - increasingly an apartment which may be let professionally by a business.
"We don't want the history of San Francisco, which was a very hard history over the last seven years, to happen in every city", Chesky said. Airbnb is launching nine exciting new collection in total but the family and work collections are available beginning today. Additionally, Airbnb Collections will feature curated selections of types of homes for specific travel needs. Later this year will be added Collections for Social stays, Weddings, Honeymoons, Group getaways and Dinner parties.
Airbnb is giving its homes a new sheen with the launch of high-end tiers aimed at offering travelers more consistency.
It will offer people who rent their homes through the tier in-home design consultation and expert photography, but did not say if there was a cost associated with the services or listings. India is now not on the list of countries for Airbnb Plus.
But Airbnb is as much about the guests as it is for the hosts, and Chesky realised that, "Airbnb should get better the more you use it". Another tier, Beyond by Airbnb, offers higher-end homes and customized experiences for luxury travel starting this spring.
Airbnb definitely revealed a number of rather significant updates to their current model, and personally, I'm excited about what the guest membership programme could bring!
It will begin a pilot scheme of the "Superguest" programme later this year for 10,000 guests.
