The new partnerships and events will accelerate professionalization and local vacation rental alliance building across the US
Today, Rent Responsibly announced five new companies have joined their partner ecosystem. The new partners and Founding Partners from 2021 will support the scaling of Rent Responsibly’s community-building and education offerings to a rapidly growing network of local vacation rental (STR) organizations.
Returning 2021 Founding Partners include Expedia Group/Vrbo, Breezeway, Proper Insurance, Key Data Dashboard, and NoiseAware. New 2022 partners include Operto, Avalara, Dtravel, Wheelhouse, and AJL Raincatcher.
Rent Responsibly is a community-building and education platform for local vacation rental alliances. The partnerships will empower these organizations by providing subject matter expertise and educational content on topics that property managers, hosts, and owners have reported as important, access to professional tools and resources, the promotion of responsible renting standards, and advocacy support.
CEO and co-founder David Krauss said he was thrilled with the energy and support that each partner has expressed for Rent Responsibly’s mission.
“Everyone wins when local vacation rental community-building is easy to do. Accelerating the growth and support for these groups is our mission every single day,” said David Krauss, co-founder and CEO of Rent Responsibly. “With near-daily requests for community-building support, these new partnerships will enable us to more scalably provide the support that these local leaders need.”
Rent Responsibly also announced its first RR Summit, a two-day virtual conference offered free of charge to vacation rental managers of all sizes and property types, as well as owners and hosts. The summer 2022 summit, Paths to Professionalization, will take place on July 12 and 13.
“After hosting more than 30 national and local events in the last year with more than 1,000 attendees, we heard over and over the top things attendees valued: education and collaboration,” said Alexa Nota, co-founder and COO of Rent Responsibly. “With RR Summits, we are excited and honored to give a stage to more expert speakers, explore more holistic topics, and provide new ways for managers and others to connect.”
The summit will feature 16 educational sessions with 2022 partners, Rent Responsibly staff, and expert guest speakers. Topics will range from implementing smart practices to leveling up your operations, navigating local laws, scaling sustainably, beating burnout, and more. Keynote sessions will include a fireside chat with HomeAway co-founder Carl Shepherd and a Founders of the Future panel discussion. Registration is required and is now open here.
