Lodging is evolving through technology, as many tourists and visitors now seek to stay in shared spaces and other short-term lodging alternatives. While short-term rentals can help diversify tourism by promoting areas that need visitors the most and reducing overcrowding in tourist hotspots, significant challenges remain regarding the regulation and fair and equitable taxation of short-term rental properties.
At the MACo Winter Conference session, “Short-Term Rental Revolution: What’s Your Game Plan?” an expert panel will detail the latest trends on the fast-moving marketplace for alternative lodging.
Short-Term Rental Revolution: What’s Your Game Plan?
Description: Lodging is evolving through technology, as many tourists and visitors now seek to stay in shared spaces and other short-term lodging alternatives.

Can this be a contributor toward your promotional efforts and what does that mean for your revenue structure? This panel will catch up on the fast-moving marketplace for alternative lodging, and where your county’s oversight and tax systems do and don’t apply.
