Hotel Association of Los Angeles Luncheon

Event Details

The topic will be "A Look at Short Term Rentals in the LA Market" presented by Ulrik Binzer, Founder & CEO of Host Compliance.

With the rapid growth of the vacation rental platforms like Airbnb, VRBO, Flipkey and Homeaway, many local governments have been caught flat footed attempting to deal with the impact of an industry that was essentially non existent a decade ago. By attending this session you will gain an understanding of the short-term rental phenomena and how the proliferation of short-term rentals across all types of communities is impacting the traditional lodging industry, quality of life, housing affordability, and community safety. Specifically attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of scale, scope and growth of the short-term rental industry across all types of communities in North America
  • Learn how the proliferation of short-term rentals is impacting the traditional lodging industry
  • Get a detailed understanding of how local regulations and enforcement policies can significantly reduce the negative side-effects associated with short-term rentals
  • Learn the best practices for working with local governments to incorporate lodging industry concerns into local short-term rental regulation and STR enforcement policies
  • Learn about the best ways to overcome the compliance and enforcement challenges in order to level the playing field between traditional lodging providers and short term rentals.
