How an Airbed Disrupted Hospitality: #Crowdchat with JJ Chai Airbnb

CrowdChat 790x300 JJ Chai

Anyone with extra space – an extra bedroom, a spare villa, or an apartment free over the weekend, can share their space to travellers around the world. All this started with an airbed. How did that happen?  As a sneak preview of what you’ll get from the most cutting edge content at Crowdsourcing Week’s 3rd Global Annual Conference in Singapore, we are thrilled to announce our #CrowdChat with JJ Chai, Managing Director of Airbnb South East Asia and India, who will speak about the Airbnb revolution at CSW Global 2015 on April 22.

#CrowdChat is a great way to join in on the conversation, gain visibility and connect with like-minded professionals. If you are a thought leader or a practitioner on sharing economy or merely curious about how collaborative consumption works in the hotel and rental marketplaces, we want to hear from you! Tune in for these discussions:

Join us as we chat with JJ Chai of Airbnb on how an airbed disrupted a billion dollar industry.
