Last November we held NYC ReformBnB, the first international summit of hotel associations grappling with the challenge of the short-term rental (STR) industry. There we launched the ReformBnB movement, a network of hotel associations and other groups pushing for commonsense regulation on the STR industry.
This was the first time the global hotel industry came together on this issue, and it was a great success. We had hotel industry representatives from 20 countries and over 30 cities, as well as senior director from the major chains Marriott and Hilton. Attendees came from places as far apart as New York, Paris, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Perth, Montreal and Tokyo.
There were also guests and speakers from outside the hotel industry including British, Chilian and New York politicians, academics, and local housing and community organizations, all calling for reform of the sector. Media coverage was excellent.
We are sending out a regular newsletter covering key issues and strategic discussions in the global debate. Please also find attached in this page the joint statement from the NY event.
Finally, we agreed to regular meetings of the ReformBnB movement in cities across the world, where we would try to build our movement further.
