Airbnb Community Expands Lodging Capacity in Tempe during Game Weekends

by Mike Hunter

According to figures recently released by Airbnb, the Tempe host community welcomed approximately 7,310 guest arrivals and earned a combined $493,700 in supplemental income during college football game weekends this past fall, helping the community significantly expand lodging capacity and welcome the surge in visitors.

In addition to helping hosts earn important supplemental income, Airbnb has allowed Tempe to accommodate extra visitors and take full advantage of the unique economic opportunity presented by college football. This benefits the local business community by keeping visitors’ food and shopping dollars in the city and helps hosts earning meaningful extra money that many use to help make ends meet. A significant percentage of hosts say they recommend restaurants and cultural activities to their guests, and, on average, Airbnb guests say 41 percent of their spending occurs in the neighborhood where they stay.
