Business Travel News caught up with the company’s business travel lead, Marc McCabe, during the Business Travel Show in London last month for an update. What have you been doing to make Airbnb more attractive for the corporate market? We started by having conversations with travel managers. Ralph Colunga [then senior director of global travel, meetings and expense for Salesforce.com, now senior director of global travel for Concur] told us he needed four things: tracking and visibility; integration with corporate travel processes; compatibility with the business’ profile, such as groups, long-term assignments and short-term assignments; and duty of care. To give corporate clients visibility, we have created corporate account codes that businesses pass on to employees to use at the Airbnb checkout page.
