Effective Short-Term Rental Management in New England Communities

Tuesday, June 6 – 2:00 PM (Eastern)

The recent explosion in the short-term rental (STR) industry has sparked conversations between local governments and industry leaders about how to utilize technology to create an STR ecosystem in local communities.

This June, we’ll be hosting a live virtual event with the Planning & Zoning Administrator of Rutland, Vermont as well as industry leaders from Breezeway and the Vermont STR Alliance. We’ll explore ways to meet the needs of all stakeholders, the importance of community education, and strategies to address the economic impacts that STRs have on New England tourism.

What you’ll learn:

Best practices for developing balanced STR policies
An understanding of how technology drives higher compliance and revenue
Ideas to better engage with stakeholders for maximum success
A roadmap to creating a successful STR management program
