At Home Anywhere: The Art of Designing Boutique Hotels in the Age of Room Share, from 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM | Haier Stage
Room share services like Airbnb, Breather, and Couchsurfing allow users to experience new places in a uniquely human way, one that suits the modern traveler’s desire for authenticity.
