Airbnb Signs Agreement with Victorian Government

October 30, 2014 No Comments

Some local Airbnb news now with Airbnb signing a formal agreement with the Victorian Government to provide accommodation for significant and major emergencies.

Specifically Airbnb will;

Work with Emergency Management Victoria before, during, and after disasters to help more residents during an emergency. Specifically, Airbnb and Emergency Management Victoria will work together to:

  • Identify Airbnb hosts who will commit to opening their doors to displaced persons and emergency services workers and volunteers when an emergency occurs and accommodation options are required or limited.
  • Provide emergency preparedness educational materials and facilitate access to community education programs for Airbnb hosts to ensure that they are well prepared within their communities.
  • Use Airbnb technology to notify hosts and guests about significant emergencies and that the Airbnb Disaster Response Service is available.

“Victoria is leading the way and using technology to benefit everyone. Today, the sharing economy is giving more people the freedom to start their own businesses and pursue their dreams and it’s helping make communities more vibrant and resilient,” said Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Emergency Management Victoria.”

This is a good initiative by Airbnb, it plays to their strengths of providing distributed accommodation in regional areas, gives them a good blast of good public relations and spreads the word about the sharing economy. Be interesting to see if other state and regional governments strike similar agreements.
