Lodging and Housing: Municipal Challenges Webinar Series (Part 1 of 3)
Maine town and city leaders and staff wrestle with how – and whether – to regulate short-term rentals, which typically promote themselves through sites like Airbnb and VRBO. But do you really get it? Do you understand the financial underpinnings that drive people and businesses to buy existing housing stock in Maine and turn it into places where tourists and visitors stay, relax and party? During this one-hour, virtual webinar, a financial expert in the lodging and short-term rental industry will explain how it ticks, which is critically important as your community considers what to do about it.
Daniel Innis is the former Dean of the UNH’s Peter T. Paul College of Business, and was the driving force behind the Peter T. Paul College building, a $50 million project that resulted in a state-of-the-art business building at UNH. Professor Innis, who was previously the Dean of the College of Business, Public Policy and Health at the University of Maine, is co-author of the book “Strategic Planning for Logistics”. He has made many presentations at professional conferences and has consulted with Fortune 500 firms in the areas of buyer behavior, distribution and channel management.
