Brian Chesky, Airbnb's co-founder and chief executive officer, plans to outline a new roadmap at a company event yesterday created to make his service more mainstream.

This is why he hopes the Roadmap would be able to fill in the gaps of those who have yet to convert.

Airbnb, which first launched in August 2008, has hosted over 300 million guest arrivals in its ten years existence.

In fact, you'll often find these kinds of kinds of home setups already in place when you're searching for places to stay overseas.

Another petitioner's counsel, Farogh Naseem, argued that there is a precedent of a court order against a political party's head. The decision was made by SC after the apex court found former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif guilty in the Panama Papers case.

"You realize over time that you do have to take more responsibility for your platform, you have to be hands on, you have to make judgments", Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Airbnb is dispatching inspectors to rate thousands of the properties listed on its home-rental service in an effort to reassure travellers they're booking nice places to stay.

Additionally, the company is expanding its Superhost program with new and updated benefits, including more exposure, custom URLs for their listings and exclusive pricing on smart home devices, starting with a partnership with Nest to offer Superhosts discounted products. Regulators in key cities such as Berlin, London, New York and even its hometown of San Francisco have cracked down on short-term rentals, blaming Airbnb for exacerbating already tight housing markets.

The PNB scam allegedly by diamond czar Nirav Modi is the biggest ever banking scam in the country. But the people of the state are intelligent and will not allow them.

Rather than just searching for a home on Airbnb and flipping through the photos or reviews, the new tiers may offer customers willing to spend more an opportunity to tap into the same expectations they'd get from a luxury resort - or, at least, a higher-end one aiming to hit the status of something like the Sofitel in Bangkok, Thailand. The Experiences feature is on track to be profitable by the end of 2019, said Airbnb spokesman Nick Papas.

With over 4.5 million places to stay around the world, listings have similarly become increasingly diversified, and Chesky admits that the 3 existing property types - Shared Space, Private Room, and Entire Home - have become too broad to properly represent the homes. Going ahead it will add four new categories- vacation home, unique space, B&B and boutique, making it a full- service travel company competing with the likes of, etc. There are more than 7,000 hosts across the state.

"People thought the idea that strangers would stay in each other's homes was insane", Chesky said. New collections include Airbnb for Family and Airbnb for Work, as well as options for Social stays, weddings, honeymoons, group getaways and dinner parties. To introduce more consistency, Airbnb Plus will include homes that have undergone 100-point inspection.

Guests can therefore have a peace of mind that these listings are guaranteed to be of excellent quality. Homeowners who list homes in the Airbnb Plus tier will get design and photography advice from Airbnb to make their homes look better to users as well as "premium customer support" that troubleshoots their problems more quickly.
