Helping Airbnb advance the home-sharing economy.

In the space of a decade the home sharing economy—spearheaded by Airbnb—has grown from nothing to a $50 billion a year industry.

Not surprisingly, lawmakers are struggling to figure out how best to regulate this new industry, which comes with so many opportunities and challenges.

Airbnb Action highlights the stories of people who have benefitted from renting their homes through Airbnb. Visitors who support Airbnb are encouraged to contact their local and national representatives, to voice their support for the home sharing economy.

After an initial pilot in New York, Airbnb Action was rolled-out across several major international cities, including San Francisco and Barcelona.

Key deliverables

  • Integrate with third-party APIs such as Google Civic Information, and Smarty Streets to retrieve a visitor’s representatives based on her address.
  • Enable content managers to create multi-lingual “template” emails, which each website visitor may customise.
  • Generate and send emails to a visitor’s representatives, on demand.
