New publication: Tourism in the digital city. The business behind Airbnb.

I’ve contributed to a short text entitled “Tourism in the digital city: The business behind Airbnb”. It is about how Airbnb is increasingly becoming a lucrative investment and a new means for investors to extract profit from tourism. The text was co-authored with Roman Seidl and Leonhard Plank and draws on our recent research on Airbnb activities in Vienna. It appeared in the German journal “Forum Wohnen und Stadtentwicklung”, published by the Bundesverband für Wohnen und Stadtentwicklung, in an issue on “Tourism and urban development”. Our text can be downloaded here (in German):
