With Airbnb launching in Sydney tonight at an 1,800 guest party on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour they have been blitzing the local news media.
According to the media reports Australians have booked over 1 million nights using Airbnb and there are 3000 Aussies staying in Airbnb homes around the world, and 1000 of those are in Australia.
Here is a round-up of coverage making news so far, including an interview with myself that appears in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald.
Donald Salter (our recent guest a few months back) is the head of Airbnb in Australia and the offices are going to be based in Ultimo in Sydney. Ashton Kutcher was also recently in Sydney with new girlfriend Mila Kunis and attended a formal dinner to celebrate the new offices in Sydney.
Can’t wait for the party tonight, should be huge.
