Why attend the Book Direct Show to start and grow your vacation rental business

For local inhabitants and businesses, the disaster is also economic. Florida is a big travel market. With great beaches and world-famous attractions such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, the state attracts many families who book a vacation rental for their stay. Cities like Orlando and Kissimmee usually rank high in market size for vacation rental revenues.

The #Bookdirect movement has been going stronger in the hospitality industry over the last years. The COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated some of the tensions between the big platforms after Airbnb, Booking.com and Vrbo imposed various cancellation, refund, and travel restriction policies.

On September 29 & 30, more than 50 speakers will give their #bookdirect advice during the Book Direct Show. Deborah Labi and Damian Sheridan, co-hosts of the online conference along with Gianpaolo Vairo, explain in this video interview with Rental Scale-Up why property managers, Airbnb hosts, and vacation rental owners should attend.

Why attend the Book Direct Show?

In this video, Deborah and Damian reveal:

  • What it has been like to put together a conference in our corona times, when travel restrictions can wreck havoc into carefully created plans
  • How they personal
  • How they have curated speakers and sessions to focus on lessons that attendees can implement
  • Why the session about designing your own website is key for people starting out
  • Why procedures around cleaning can help build trust in booking directly with you
  • How to balance using OTAs to get a guest’s first booking and making sure that she or he rebooks with you next time
  • Why reviews are more important that even seasoned property managers think to get more (direct) bookings
