Airbnb’s new tool will help event organizers find their guests places to stay

So many events have been happening in Nairobi over the last couple of months. Guests from across the globe have been flocking the city and one of the challenges most of them have been facing is finding a place to stay.

Unless your bosses are good enough to book you into a fancy or decent place to stay, finding a place has always been a hustle.  Airbnb is usually a decent option and now the company wants to make things easier for event goers and organisers to find accommodation.

The company has unveiled a new tool that will allow event organisers create interactive maps of accommodation listings and close to their event venues, then embed them to onto events websites.

Known as  Airbnb for Events, the company says the tool gives people attending your event a broad range of options -from work-friendly to fun and funky as well as help organizers market their conference or event.

Airbnb has already provided the tools to various event management, wedding, trip planning and city guide platforms. The tool is available for free and Airbnb notes that the main aim of the tool is to help you connect guests attending your event to great accommodations that fits their need.
