Throughout the weekend you’ll get a crash course on how to take an idea and turn it into action.

Be a Host – Airbnb Meetup

23 Dec , 2014   Video

The 1961 will be hosting the very first Airbnb meetup in Cambodia on Saturday 27 Dec, 5pm-8pm. We are very excited about this as we have tremendous respect for the success this young company has achieved since it was founded in 2008. As a coworking space we also stand alongside Airbnb in the so-called Sharing Economy

If you are not familiar with Airbnb, here’s a brief description:

Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone.

Airbnb is looking to develop an array of interesting places to stay in Cambodia to provide unique experiences for travelers. We’ll be making a bit of cash on the side with this which is not bad either! This meetup will be all about hosting: the philosophy of Airbnb, how to set up an account and how to create a listing, hosting standards and tips and trick on how to become an amazing host!

It’s free to join but you’ll need to register as the number of attendees is limited. Here’s the link to the event http://bit.ly/1z6zoRj
