I am BEYOND proud to announce that The Vacation Rental Show presented by Booking.com is making the leap to broadcast TV! As of this week, all 10 episodes of Season 2 of the show will air prime time on OSN, the largest TV broadcast provider in the Middle East, one of the fastest growing regions in the world.
The announcement was released on VRMIntel this past weekend. "The collaboration is the first time a content creator and travel tech brand have reached broadcast television, and the show serves to increase category awareness for vacation rental sector."
This step (from YouTube to television) means wonders for the show's track record moving forward. It is also now the first travel show to feature vacation rentals on TV, which increases the category awareness of our industry in a way that has never been done before. (And in a style that we think does our colleagues justice.)
Thanks to all my champions at Booking.com for helping independent vacation rental pros soar to new heights! I always say "every vacation rental pro deserves a champion" and Booking has been ours. Over the past few years, the efforts Booking has made to enter and empower VRMs has been unmatched. Other OTAs, take note
Here's the Booking team making the push: Gareth CL Maritz, Liezl ver Loren van Themaat, Bas Beverwijk, Najib Kuijstermans, Olivier Grémillon, Fay Meimaraki, Alessandro Pacilio, Thibault Masson, Joanna Bak.
To infinity and beyond!
