With Simon Lehmann, AJL Consulting and Alessandro Pacilio – Senior Product Marketing Manager at Booking.com
It is clear to us all that all travel and hospitality verticals have been strongly impacted by the current COVID-19 crisis. Everyone is trying their best to save their business and prepare for recovery. The short-term rental industry is expected to be one of the fastest recovering travel verticals, however, we all know that the landscape will have changed tremendously by the time bookings start to return. Watch below for one of our guest speakers, as part of the AJL Profitability Hub online conference, discuss emerging trends for the professional short-term rental industry.
For each session, you are welcome to post a question, via Sli.do and we will endeavour to answer as many questions as possible at the live wrap-up event.

The vast majority of short-term rental property managers are using technology to support their business and be more efficient in their daily operations.
In this session we will discuss how you can use this downtime to educate yourself about the technology already available to you, from OTA’s extranet to a deep dive into your property management system’s features making the most of this downtime to learn, monitor the market and build the right automations to support a faster recovery of your business.
During this session we will discuss Booking.com’s extranet features with Alessandro
