Thrive Founder and Managing Director, Leilani Abels said: “Thrive and Airbnb are limited by nothing when it comes to what we can achieve together with forward-thinking public relations activity. We have started from a unique place with Airbnb, sharing the same entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for community and creating memorable experiences. I'm excited for our consultants to have the opportunity to work with Airbnb's first-class team, on an incredible brand and with a world leader in its category. We have begun our journey to deliver great value, innovative thinking and business impact to Airbnb.
Since 2007, Airbnb’s community of 4 million Hosts have welcomed more than 1 billion guest arrivals in almost every country across the globe. Every day, Hosts offer one-of-a-kind stays and unique experiences that make it possible for guests to experience the world in a more authentic, connected way.
How incredible to be part of that," said Abels.
