Hi All,

If you can't beat them, join them!

"Marriott International Inc. is starting a new home-rental business, aiming to take on Airbnb Inc. and other home-sharing companies in one of the lodging industry's hottest segments," said The Wall Street Journal today (Tuesday, 30 April 2019). "The Bethesda, Md.-based company said that starting next week it will offer accommodations in about 2,000 high-end homes throughout 100 markets across the U.S., Europe and Latin America." [Compared to Airbnb's 6 million listing.]

The Washington Post (30 April 2019) Marriott dives into home-rental market to keep an edge on Airbnb

Since every home/apartment is different, seems like a great opportunity for Matterport Service Providers.

I would imagine that existing photography agencies that handle photography for Matterport hotel rooms will be be scrambling to find and book Matterport Service Providers.

Your thoughts?

Best,

Dan

It depends on how they are going to profit from transactions. As far as I know AirBnb is blocking Matterport tours because they cannot control what's inside them. I think they are just afraid that homeowners find a way(and there are plenty in Matterport) to pass their contact details through a tour leaving AirBnb without their commision.
