This week, Airbnb is having 1,400 ..., 19 Dec 2014 [cached]
This week, Airbnb is having 1,400 of its top hosts fly to San Francisco for a three-day conference Conley and Chesky created to recognize and educate hosts.
Then in spring of last year, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky came knocking. Chesky, who co-founded Airbnb with Gebbia and chief technology officer Nate Blecharchzyk in 2008, had already found success in legitimizing couch surfing as an alternative to staying at a hotel.
Chesky wanted Conley's advice on how to be an effective, long-lasting CEO. ("And here I am, this old guy who had been a CEO for a long time," Conley quips.) He also had ambitions of taking Airbnb from a tech company that connected hosts and travelers to a full-fledged hospitality business - something Conley knew a lot about.

Brian Chesky
Co-Founder and CEO, Airbnb Inc.
Brian drives the company's vision, strategy and growth. Always pushing the status quo, Brian aims to disrupt the industry with ideas that change the way people live. To grasp the full impact and experience of Airbnb, Brian rid himself of an apartment and lived in the homes of the Airbnb community since for 6 months in 2010. He is committed to assembling a passionate, top tier team to deliver on this promise. Before Airbnb, Brian ran an industrial design shop in Los Angeles; even these days he is rarely seen without a drafting pen and sketch book in hand. Brian holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in industrial design from the Rhode Island School of Design.
