A Keynote Speaker Who Comes with a Cape

As many of you know, Matt Landau is one of the most passionate advocates for advancing the livelihood of short-term rental industry entrepreneurs—and this is why we love him! Working with a high-power group of industry thought leaders, academics and service providers who informally call themselves the “avengers,” they are committed to unifying advocacy efforts and sharing best practices across the global community to fortify the industry’s future.

As he shared in the January 13 post for Short Term Rentalz, “Regulation is the short-term rental industry’s greatest threat: unfair or inconsistent regulation puts every independent vacation rental business at risk. Even hosts attempting to contribute honestly and professionally are currently being be affected and the livelihood of the movement is in danger…This harsh reality was the impetus for a private meeting with the goal of creating a playbook of their collective wisdom for the broader short-term rental community to mobilise and effectuate change.”
