New Platinum Sponsor Airbnb Confirmed As Panellist And Luncheon Host At 2016 Corporate Travel World (CTW) Conference

 



Singapore, 14 September 2016 – Corporate Travel World (CTW) Asia-Pacific announced today Airbnb’s debut at the 2016 Corporate Travel World (CTW) Asia Pacific, held from 27-29 September 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand. The community-driven hospitality company will provide insights on the region’s corporate travel trends and Airbnb for Business, the company’s business-focused offering.

Airbnb for Business tripled its growth in 2016; to date, more than 50,000 companies use Airbnb for Business to make a booking. This momentum is fuelled by a new experience-led economy where there is heightened demand to customise travel opportunities on both the leisure and business travel front.

“Business travel is becoming less about being a road warrior and more about mixing business with leisure. Asia-Pacific currently accounts for the largest spend in business travel, and a big driver of this growth is the shift in mindset towards the notion of ‘business trips’,” states Julian Persaud, Regional Director of Airbnb, Asia Pacific.

“Around 60% of business trips at Airbnb in the last year included a Saturday or Sunday night because business travellers are looking for opportunities to mix work travel with the chance want to explore a city and create unique experiences even while on the road for work.”

Airbnb’s participation at CTW Asia-Pacific comes amid an exciting time where accommodation developments are trending towards a better corporate travel experience. As a panellist on “Game-­Changing Accommodation Trends”, Airbnb will weigh in on the concept of the sharing economy in this corporate travel sphere and a product deep-dive on how a platform can meet the needs of corporate travellers. Airbnb will also address questions that participants may have.

As a Platinum Sponsor of the CTW Asia-Pacific 2016, Airbnb will also host a luncheon and present case studies of corporate clients to shed light on how companies can tailor their offerings to suit their business needs.

Airbnb is among the list of high profile brands staging a prominent presence at this year’s CTW Asia-Pacific. As the only corporate travel event of its kind within the region, CTW Asia-Pacific offers an unparalleled platform to grow networks and business prospects through a host of networking, education, and sourcing opportunities with like-minded industry professionals. The show’s curated panel of 30 international and regional speakers will lend their expertise, experience and voice to a plethora of hot topics that address current issues and create in-depth discussions among delegates.

In addition to attracting the largest congregation of Asia-Pacific corporate travel management buyers through a comprehensive hosted buyers programme and education offerings, CTW Asia-Pacific also features exclusive sponsorship platforms such as captive networking coffee breaks and hosted luncheons. CTW Asia-Pacific’s high buyer-to-seller ratio coupled with its engagement solutions, go beyond a single facet to enable sponsors like Airbnb achieve its brand building and market activation goals. Interested sponsors can contact sales.ctwapac@ttgasia.com for more details on customised sponsorship packages.
