The sharing economy trend is redefining the travel industry and revolutionizing the way we travel. In the last several years, companies like Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Vayable, Feastly and many more have allowed people to share their homes, cars, meals, and knowledge of their local destinations like never before. This movement of collaborative consumption has brought about a truly authentic travel experience, direct economic benefits to local populations and immense social benefits for both hosts and guests. Join GW Tourism Alumni Network and the School of Business to hear insights from representatives of companies from the accommodations, transportation and dining sectors on this emerging trend and its impact on the industry.

Panelists Include:

  • Molly Turner, Public Policy, Airbnb
  • Dave Barmore, Public Policy, Uber
  • Daniel Harris, Co-Founder, Feastly

This event is open to all GW Alumni and current graduate students
