Hello everyone,

 

Every day in the Community Center we see hosts sharing experiences, knowledge and creativity when providing great hospitality to guests. You do so much on a daily basis, that you almost don’t think about how fantastic it is and so we want to highlight this. 

 

So, from August 27 - 30th, together we will be hosting a four-day festival here in the Community Center! 

 

The Community Center Festival of Hospitality will be entirely online, full of great topics and fun conversation. We do need your help though, so we would like to invite you to get involved.

 

Here are two ways:

 

1. Community Video: “I love hosting because…” (yes, we want to create a video!)

We would like you to record a 10 second video of yourself on your smartphone (or other device if you prefer). All videos will start with you saying “I love hosting because…”. 

 

We will then paste all the videos together to make our very own community video which we will share during the week. 🙂 

 

 How this works: 

  • Start by recording yourself saying “I love hosting because…”
  • Record it in landscape mode (not portrait) 
  • Ideal video formats: .mov or mp4

 

**This is now closed to submissions. 

 

 

2. Create a detailed topic:

If you would like to create a topic to be included in the week,  please contact me directly to discuss this further. 

 

We hope this sounds like an exciting week, if you have other ideas, please do share 🙂

 

 

Thanks so much,

 

Lizzie and @Stephanie

Great to hear you like this @Yosef3. Are you going to create a 10 second video? It would be great to have you involved. 🙂

@Lizzie What fun!  I wish I hadn't already done that Smart Pricing post though!  I'm at my Airbnb so I'm excited to do a short video on-site.

@Ann72  That was a great post! Maybe you could ask the mods if you could still work in that topic as I'm sure many people still haven't seen it?

Thanks, @Suzanne302, I was thinking of something along those lines - I think it can be rewritten because there's more information that I put in some of the comments and that I've since discovered.  I'll talk to @Lizzie about it!

Hey @Ann72,

 

This is fantastic to hear, I can't wait to see your video! 🙂 

 

I've also had a thought about your topic, I'll send you a DM. 

 

Thanks,

Lizzie

Hey @Emiel1 ,

 

@Quincy sent you a message about it last week but since his on vacation, I can send you the details.

 

Not campsite, marshmallow and sing-a-longs, mind you...

 

Thanks

Will there be any little perks for people who send video?

 

Who will see the video?

 

Will all the videos be included?

 

Great idea @Lizzie !

Hey @Mike-And-Helen0 ,

 

Oh I'm sure we can rustle something up for contributors! We hope to include all the videos, I will be editing them together and we will be subtitling for all the different CC languages to enjoy. 

 

The video will be shared here on the Airbnb Community Center 🙂

 

Thanks,

 

Stephanie

@Stephanie  & @Lizzie  what a great idea! Will think about this over my gin and tonic..........

 

I’m currently taking a long weekend in Ubud, Bali. Is this a reward for hosting a family wedding in our yard, or is it just because?

 

Do I need an excuse? 

 

With a short 2hour 50minute flight from Darwin.........  probably the later!
