    Airbnb and Events

    Airbnb helps cities cover increased demand in lodging from big events. Hosts often make their home available for key events to cover lodging needs and also make some extra income. The graph below shows spikes in nights booked in Edinburgh in August 2016 around the Fringe Festival 2016.

    All Definitions

    Annual Earnings (Typical Host): Median value of total income earned by host during the one-year study period. Annual earnings are presented for typical hosts.

    Average Length of Stay: The average length of stay per guest, rather than per trip.

    Guest: Airbnb community members who stay in Airbnb listings.

    Host: Airbnb community members who rent space on Airbnb.

    Inbound Guest: All guests visiting a particular location. Inbound guests includes guests who live in the same location they may have stayed in.

    Listing (Active): A property listed on Airbnb. Listings may include entire homes or apartments, private rooms or shared spaces. Active Listings are all listings that appear on the website during a search. Active listings do not necessarily have availability on a particular date or at all.

    Listing Types: Airbnb classifies listings as three different types: Entire Home / Apart-ment listings, Private Room Listings, and Shared Room Listings: Entire Home / Apartment Listing - A listing where the guest can rent the entire home from the host. The host is not present in the home during the guests stay. Private Room Listing - A listing where the guest can rent a private bedroom within a home. The host may be present in oth-er parts of the home during the guests stay, and the guest may share common spaces like the kitchen, living room, and/or a bathroom with the host. Shared Room Listing - A listing where the guest can rent a communal space, such as a shared bedroom or a living room sofa-bed, within a home. The host may be present in the home during the guests stay, and the guest may share common spaces like the kitchen and/or a bathroom with the host.

    Nights Hosted (By Listing): Total number of nights a given listing is rented through Airbnb in the study period. Only listings that were active as of the start of the study period, and had at least one booking during the study period are included, in order to present the most representative annual values for Airbnb hosting activity.

    Nights Hosted (Typical Host): Median value of total nights hosted per host during the one-year study period. Nights Hosted are presented for typical hosts.

    Outbound Guest: All guests from a particular location who booked an Airbnb listing, regardless of where the listing is. There may be some minor overlap between Inbound Guests and Outbound Guests. All guests associated with a particular reservation are attributed to the location of the book-ing guest.

    Total Economic Impact: The direct, indirect, and induced economic impact supported in a community directly related to Airbnb host and guest spending. This number is an estimate, calculated based on host earnings from Airbnb bookings data, guest spending estimates based on external data sources, and an economic multiplier range of 1.0 to 1.5.

    Typical Host: The median host for all hosts who had at least one active listing as of the start of the study period and at least one booking during the study period. Typical host definitions are used to calculate Annual Earnings and Nights Hosted. Presenting the median value for all hosts who were active as of the start of the study period provides the most representa-tive values for the Airbnb host community.
