Free AirBNB Training sponsored by MACED

  • Pine Mountain Grill 45 US 119 Whitesburg, KY 41858 United States (map)

Property owners interested in sharing space with travelers will learn how to list their properties with Airbnb and start earning income through a two-part training that begins Tuesday, April 23rd.

 A partnership between Letcher County Tourism and the Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED), the training includes two sessions over the course of two weeks, for a total of six hours. Developed with the guidance of nine Airbnb hosts from across eastern Kentucky and facilitated by an Airbnb superhost, the hands-on workshop will teach participants how to:

 • Develop an Airbnb listing
• Market their property
• Comply with local taxes and regulations
• Connect with local tourism efforts for maximum visibility

The typical rural Airbnb host earns $3,300 annually. Property owners keep 97 percent of the listing price when they list with the online home-sharing site.

 Training sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 30th from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM in the Pine Mountain Grill banquet room. Food will be provided. Pre-registration is encouraged to help Tourism better prepare.
