While Airbnb is best known among leisure travelers for its unique lodgings, the company is now expanding its Airbnb for Work offerings to attract businesses.

Tapping into the business travel market, Airbnb has added three new features. The first of which allows businesses to book Airbnb Experiences, such as pastry-making classes or sailing lessons for team bonding.

Secondly, homes can be rented for corporate off-sites and meetings. Finally, employers can secure temporary housing for employees who are relocating for work.

The company said of the new features, “Airbnb group experiences – from sailing lessons to pastry-making classes with a Michelin chef – help teams bond and form meaningful connections.”

“These newly featured experiences for professionals are currently available in more than 800 markets around the world in a number of categories, including wellness, team-building, and social impact.”

The spaces that can be used for corporate events will also come with work-friendly amenities such as speedy Wi-Fi and self check-in.

These new features come in light of its growing corporate sector, which shows that the number of business trips using the home home-share accommodation service tripled in the past year.
