These companies have committed to integrate with Trips
“Who is a little less young like me will recognize the founder Luca De Giglio, who with the stage name of Tripluca shared the stories of his travels from the frequencies of Radio Deejay.
In fact Luca was one of the most popular travel bloggers on the web even before the term was invented. After renting apartments all over the world, and after teaching apartment owners how to make money on Airbnb, he is now organizing his Ico to create an Airbnb made in Italy based on the blockchain.”
“I first met Luca on stage at a Vacation Rental conference and was blown away and entertained away by his granularity of operational understanding and insight to the future industry developments.
Having been in the sector for almost 20 years, Luca has seen the avalanche of changes first hand but maintains a forward looking perspective. Being a manager, outsourcer and mentor also allowed Luca to use these skills to fund his widespread travels. In a world where geo differences exist this allows for local approach to a global business.
The industry experts, such as Luca look over the horizon and long ago he predicted changes to the power curve of distribution, self check-ins and data management. This keen eye for trends and change allows businesses to be prepared and avoid income and margins issues.
His next bet is: “Apartment usability tests and long stays for Digital Nomads and Smart Workers”.
It would also be no surprise that over that over Luca’s horizon is a Blockchain opportunity and no-one is better placed to join the rental and Blockchain dots together, often talking at conferences on this very subject.
I and my companies have been following Blockchain closely and been involved to a small degree with some startups. Blockchain, as Luca says is still a mystery for most, but he swears it will rock the whole industry in the years to come and it could be a massive disruptor to the rental and travel industry in general.
As a founder and investor in a rental tech company, vacation rental management businesses (and a scientist by training), data management, access and distribution is the life blood of travel business. Siloed data restricts opportunities and frustrates innovation.
TripsCommunity is ideally placed to make this a success.
Trips is a very forward thinking and potentially disruptive play in an increasingly financially hostile market for suppliers, all of whom would jump at the chance to reduce risk and spread reward and see more innovation.”
