WeWork and Airbnb join forces

WeWork and Airbnb have joined forces in a bid to take over the business travel market. Travellers who use Airbnb will be able to reserve a desk or conference room at the nearest WeWork location in a trial concept that will run in six cities. The pilot began yesterday and will operate in London, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Washington and Sydney. The companies hope the new alliance will lure young business travellers and steal corporate business away from hotels.
