Airbnb’s PyeongChang 2018 booth attracts over 1,000 visitors

Airbnb showcased a booth at the ‘Meet PyeongChang 2018 In Advance’ event which was held in the Seoul Olympic Park World Peace Gate from December 22nd to 24th.  

With just 50 days left until the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, the event presented with different programs related to the Olympic Games, exhibitions by the official sponsors and supporter, and other hands-on experience of the Games. The 3-day event hosted by the PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (the POCOG), Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST), and Gangwon Province certainly created a buzz for the upcoming Winter Olympics.

To build up the excitement for the Games, Airbnb also took part by opening a booth that replicated an actual Swedish listing with various activities for the public. Activities included a photo wall of Airbnb logo, bélo, for visitors to take pictures, while others included Korean traditional games with giveaway prizes, and airing stories of Airbnb Gangwon hosts.

Over the course of three days, Airbnb’s booth attracted a total of 1,013 visitors– 240 on the 22nd, 612 on the 23rd, and 161 on the 24th.
