Airbnb has plans to increase their presence in China. The startup will be increasing its investment in the country with hopes of reaching the millennial travel market.
The brand will be adding 100 people to its technical staff in Beijing, which is the only office they have outside of the United States.
Airbnb co-founder Nathan Blecharczyk has said that he wants to have Chinese locals in charge of the Chinese office.
“They understand their country the best. Even though we are a global technology platform, they have the technical ability to go and change things.”
Earlier in the week it was reported that Airbnb now has over four million listings in 191 different countries, making its reach larger than the largest hotel chains.
