December has not been a great month for operators and the public perception of our business.
In Australia, another out of control party made international news:
- Youths wielding metal poles and bricks clash with police after Boxing Day bash in Perth turns violent
These incidents are startling in their destruction. In both cases the owner/operators were duped by party-planning guests. What’s more, operators continue to get punished by Airbnb for these parties, with more and more suspensions doled out every week. The Party Squasher sensors and service could have helped both owners identify parties before the noise and destruction started and before the police got involved.
With New Year’s Eve around the corner and many “party spots” still shut down because of COVID, it is possible—even likely—that we will see more party disasters.
