Alex Dagg, Director of Public Policy, Airbnb
A big part of Alex Dagg’s job at Airbnb is working with cities to create fair and easy-to-follow rules for home sharing. For example, on Dec 3, Airbnb and Tourism Vancouver announced a first-of-its-kind in Canada partnership agreement. The agreement will see Airbnb leverage its global reach through digital channels such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter as well as its magazine Airbnbmag, to boost Vancouver's reputation as a premier destination.
“One of our main motivators is supporting our host community—regular, every day people who are using Airbnb as a way to help make their lives more affordable in a city that is increasingly expensive,” says Dagg. Airbnb will be working with Tourism Vancouver to expand the variety and quality of licensed accommodation offerings in the city, providing visitors with diverse options to suit every budget and style.
“Likewise, we are members of the Toronto community, not just through our employees who work here, but through our more than 10,000 hosts who are sharing their homes all across the city. Working with the Board provides an invaluable resource into the heart of Toronto's business community and further strengthens Airbnb's commitment to help drive growth and competitiveness of the Toronto region.”
