The Case Against Consolidation in Vacation Rentals on Unlocked by Matt Landau

by | Nov 28, 2022 | Operations, Supply & Demand, Strategy, Talks

On this new episode of Series 9 of Matt Landau’s Unlocked podcast, Matt talks to AJL Atelier’s own Simon Lehmann about the state of short-term rentals and how consolidation may not be the end game, in spite of the economic headwinds.

From his debuts in freight forwarding and logistics on the other side of the world, his early dream of becoming a Chef, his leadership skills picked up in the Scouts, when he played piano with Elton John (you read that right) and much, much more.

We’ve come a long way from the Saturday-to-Saturday, catalogue-driven sales of the early 80s all the way to today’s digital-first, marketplace approach for distribution. Now, 80%+ travellers consider home stays, which is a very different to 20% just a decade ago.
