Marcus Räder is the CEO and co-founder of a company called Hostaway. Hostaway is at the center of the convergence between short-term rentals, vacation rentals, and the hospitality industries. While these terms are often used interchangeable, you’ll hear why they’re not exactly the same thing but also why it’s important to have the right tech stack to handle the demand from consumers.
The entire hospitality industry has experienced incredible amounts of change in just the last few years. Owners and operators who are readily adopting automations, better systems, and an integrated tech stack are those that will rise to the top.
Listen in as Marcus breaks all this down and more.
