Industry Update – AirDNA, Placemakr, and Transparent Acquisitions (Ep456)

On the last episode of STR Conversations, Eric and I spoke about why we gave our team a budget to book a unique stay on Airbnb. Now we’re back to tell you how it went.

On this edition of STR Conversations, Eric and I recap our unique stays at Airbnbs over the weekend and discuss some of the biggest shifts in the STR (short-term rental) industry, especially in the Covid pandemic era.

We cover current events in the industry, including OTA Insight’s acquisition of Transparent, Alpine Investors' acquisition of AirDNA, and WhyHotel’s recent venture capital raise and rebrand to Placemakr.

We share our thoughts on WhyHotel’s unique business model and why AirDNA is the go-to data company in the STR space.
