Reimagining the future of travel and hospitality.

A community-powered “festival of hosting” reinventing hospitality and tourism, gathering thousands of Airbnb hosts, guests and thought leaders to celebrate a city and its neighborhoods.

In its third annual installment, AO ‘16 in Downtown Los Angeles convened 20k+ hosts and guests from the Airbnb community (from 110+ countries) for a three-day festival of hosting including interactive workshops, inspiring talks and community celebrations. AO’s sprawling urban campus took over 17 venues and 300+ restaurants in DTLA.

Streets were closed off for programming e.g. Open Spotlight which celebrated DTLA’s food, music, art and design culture. James Corden hosted the Airbnb Belo Awards, Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga performed and AO featured the LA-premiere of Oscar-winning La La Land.
