There is no doubt that AirBnB has taken the accommodation market by storm on a worldwide platform. Bringing greater choice to the consumer, an easy to navigate platform, opening up revenue options for room/unit owners that otherwise face challenges to get visibility, and of course coming in at lower costs than other online channels ….it all seems positive. However how does this form of selling fit with Thailand’s legal structure for hotels and condominiums to operate, be it with necessary licenses, insurances and authorisations? The panel brings a scope of knowledge that covers legal, real estate, hotel and revenue viewpoints. Join us for what will be an interesting conversation as we debate the impact of a changing landscape of accommodation sales.
