DOMINICA JOINS AIRBNB’S “LIVE AND WORK ANYWHERE” CAMPAIGN TO WELCOME DIGITAL NOMADS
Thursday is “Live and work anywhere“, an ongoing initiative to continue working with governments and DMOs to create a one-stop-shop for remote workers and encourage them to try new places to work, while helping to revive tourism and provide support economic to communities after years of travel restrictions.
For the Caribbean region, Airbnb found that:
- The share of nights booked for long-term stays in Q1 2022 almost doubled compared to the same period in 2019.
- In the first quarter of 2019, almost 6% of all bookings were for long-term stays, while in the first quarter of 2022, this percentage reached almost 10%.
- The number of nights booked for long-term stays tripled in Q1’22 compared to Q1’19.
Continuing its efforts to partner with governments and tourism agencies to promote responsible travel and local economic growth, Airbnb, in partnership with the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) will promote CTO member countries with digital nomad programs in Airbnb’s vast global community.
This campaign will promote Dominica through a landing page which provides details on the Digital Nomads Program and also highlights the best Airbnb options for staying and working in Dominica.
