Hi All,

Beyond by Airbnd - the "ultra luxurious" Airbnd brandbut will include Matterport 3D tours (sooner than later). Beyond by Airbnb brand was announced in February 2018 as coming this Spring 2018, but has not yet launched.

Multiple Matterport Service Providers have let me know that they have been engaged to shoot Matterport 3D Tours for Airbnb.

I do not know if this is with - or without - Matterport's knowledge.

While Matterport has not confirmed an alliance with Airbnb/Beyond by Airbnb, I could imagine that Matterport and Airbnb are working together to enable this initiative. I could imagine that Matterport and Airbnb have an agreement in place and the companies will confirm this initiative when most or all of the Beyond Airbnd properties have have Matterport scans and/or Beyond by Airbnb launches.

I could imagine that Matterport made a concession to Airbnb regarding hosting and/or branding to enable this initiative.

I agree with @imad - whom started this related WGAN Forum discussion - that:

Be prepared guys .. they day of virtual content are coming.


Once Beyond by Airbnb is announced, I could imagine that next up would be Matterport integration within Airbnb Plus and then Airbnb.

What do you think?

Are my sources wrong and another thing that I predicted does not happen, or, it's just taken longer to see see Matterport integration within Airbnb (and it is coming sooner than later)?

Best,

Dan

That's a coin toss Dan.

So who and how do you contact Airbnb to get some work? Is the client Airbnb or the property host?

Hey Angus,

Here is the company Airbnb hired to do all the still photos of their properties in the Chicago market.

https://www.meero.com/en/

They're located in Paris France so I would guess they handle your market also. In my opinion they don't pay near enough to bother with.
