What Airbnb and Hotels Should Learn from Each Other
On this episode of the Skift podcast, we're talking about the conflict between Airbnb and hotels — and how some of them are actually learning from each other. In the Skift Take Studio backstage at the Skift Global Forum, we spoke to Amar Lalvani, managing partner of Standard Hotels parent company Standard International, and and Liz Lambert, chief creative officer at Bunkhouse Group. We had a separate conversation with Airbnb’s Global Head of Hospitality and Strategy, Chip Conley. Lalvani and Lambert spoke to contributing writer Jeremy Kressman, and Conley spoke to podcast host Hannah Sampson. Skift editor Deanna Ting also joins Sampson to add some insight into the conversations. This is one of several conversations we’re bringing you from backstage at the Skift Global Forum. The Skift Take Studio Series is presented by Mastercard, a payments technology company that is enabling loyalty, security and data solutions for the global travel industry.
