Challenges and Opportunities of the Sharing Economy with Airbnb

David Owen, regional head of public policy at Airbnb, will share his thoughts about the challenges and opportunities presented by the new sharing economy. This event marks the first time representatives from Airbnb have engaged business leaders in Los Angeles in a policy engagement forum.

Join us to discuss the current regulatory environment for sharing economy-based businesses and services, the opportunities they can create for consumers and tourism and Airbnb's plans for the L.A. market.

He served four years as chief of staff to the president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and has executed political and policy engagement strategies for a diverse group of clients.
