This week we're at The Book Direct Show in Miami!

We’ve attended a few short-term rental conferences over the last few months and we have loved meeting up with hosts, property managers and our industry colleagues.

This week we are excited to attend and sponsor The Book Direct Show in Miami - 18th and 19th October.

The Book Direct Show is unique in that it focuses on delivering actionable content to help short-term rental hosts, hoteliers and serviced accommodation providers generate more direct bookings, rather than being wholly reliant on bookings generated through the OTAs (Online Travel Agents) such as Airbnb, VRBO and

The two day live conference will cover a host of topics from branding, SEO and the guest experience; to how to build a more inclusive and welcoming short-term rental business and operational data.

Some of the industry’s most knowledgeable minds will be sharing their wisdom and perspective on the future of short-term rentals and how to achieve a higher ROI through direct booking strategies.

Speakers and guest panellists include Matt Landau, Heather Bayer, Jodie Bourne, Tyann Marcink, Steve Milo, and Neely Khan, to name just a few inspirational minds that you’ll get to meet during the two day conference.

Conferences can leave a high carbon footprint through travel, equipment, venue lighting and power, so Book Direct Show organiser, Damian Sheridan took the initiative to create a more eco-friendly event this year in Miami.

He has introduced a number of initiatives to reduce the show’s carbon footprint and deliver a less environmentally harmful event.

Eco-friendly commitments include greener accommodation with Jurny, no printed literature, elimination of single-use plastics during the event, eco-friendly lanyards, and investment into Ecologi.

Check out all of the Book Direct Show’s green initiatives.
