Abstract

Airbnb's CEO, Brian Chesky, stated three trends he believes travel will follow in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Chesky predicts that business travel will no longer be prominent and that companies will transition over towards company "hubs" or annual meetings. He notes that he believes smaller tier cities will continue to gain attraction, leveling out the competition between tier one cities. Lastly, he believes travelers will look for a more authentic and meaningful experience when they begin traveling again.
