    Regulating the Short-Term Rental Economy

    Regulating the Short-Term Rental Economy

    What a difference a year makes — and perhaps a pandemic. During a discussion at this year's Skift Short-Term Rental & Outdoor Summit on December 9, held online, signs of more collaborative environment emerged between cities and short-term rental operators.
    The discussion was moderated by Amy Hinote, founder and editor-in-chief of VRM Intel. “The industry came in and we weren’t ready as municipalities and now we’re ready for those conversations and I’m excited about them,” said Clarence Anthony, CEO and executive director of the National League of Cities.
    Amanda Pedigo, Expedia vice president of government and corporate affairs, and Tim Burgess, former Seattle mayor and city council member, weighed in as well about the impact of the pandemic on short-term rental players and cities desperate to revive downtown economies. To learn more about short-term rental regulations and opportunities, read this story.

    How Diversity Fuels Creativity: Lessons for the Next Era of Travel Brands

    How Diversity Fuels Creativity: Lessons for the Next Era of Travel Brands

    In early November Skift hosted its first Design the Future event, an afternoon of discussions with leaders in the design and creativity space. As part of this, we're posting extracts of these conversations. 
    Host: Robert Rosenthal, author, speaker, and journalist
    Guest: Aaron Walton, CEO of Walton Isaacson
    Diversity means harnessing the power of disruption. Differences are disruptive, and that’s the key to innovation — disrupting the status quo or predictable, said Walton Isaacson CEO Aaron Walton. The travel industry, like the entire world, has had a major wake-up call this year when it comes to diversity, but Walton said the industry needs to see diversity is more than just the look of a company: “The eye should be able to be see diversity, but what’s probably just as important is how it sounds,” he added. “The sound of diversity is the sound of the status quo smashing into a million pieces and someone rearranging those in ways nobody thought about before.”
