Bonus Analyst Sessions: Consolidation and Tech in the Vacation Rentals Industry

February 14, 2017

While the vacation rental industry is becoming more popular among consumers, particularly in urban areas, behind the scenes three waves of consolidation are hitting the sector.

In this Skift Research Analyst Session we discuss the global vacation rentals landscape and look at how the industry is quickly evolving when it comes to vacation rental managers and the digital tools and platforms they use to fill their properties. We talk about what's happening with Airbnb in the context of the professionally managed segment of the business. We outline the landscape in terms of competition and the companies that are setting themselves up for success in this increasingly competitive market. We also highlight topline data from our 2017 U.S. High-Income Traveler Survey including attitudinal data on what high-income travelers think about Airbnb and rentals as an alternative to traditional hotels.
