Airbnb is coming to KNOW, and they want to meet you!
Trust & Safety is the foundation of the sharing economy, and Airbnb has built a $30 billion business on getting trust right. But keeping that edge requires more than a great reputation and an “Airplane house”
That’s why we’re excited to announce that Airbnb is partnering with KNOW 2019 to foster the next generation of great companies and technologies at the leading edge of identity and trust.
At KNOW 2019, Airbnb will be launching some key industry engagements, including:
- Co-sponsoring the KNOW 2019 startup pitch competition – Startup pitch participants will have the opportunity to show off their companies before a panel of expert judges, including members of the Airbnb team. In addition to a hefty cash prize, the pitch competition winner will get a tour of the Airbnb headquarters in San Fransisco and a meeting with the Trust & Safety team. It’s a career-making opportunity for innovative tech to get feedback and make connections with a true industry leader.
- Hosting the Airbnb fun zone – KNOW 2019 is all about making genuine connections with smart people. So this year, Airbnb will give KNOW attendees the chance to volley great ideas back and forth over some actual ping-pong volleys. The Airbnb fun zone will be KNOW’s networking hot spot – build the Future of Trust while you topple a giant jenga tower, and come away with a broader network and new partnership opportunities.
“KNOW is the premier event in the trust and identity space,” says Filip Verley, Product Manager at Airbnb. “We are excited to share, learn, and find partners to build the next generation of products.”
KNOW 2019 will take place at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas from March 24-27, 2019. Register today for KNOW and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more on how to meet Airbnb and other leading organizations at this year’s event.
