After two years of lockdown, a hunger emerged for immersive, authentic travel experiences. Airbnb saw this as an opportunity to rethink its product and in May 2022, they introduced - Airbnb Categories.

They categorized their vast inventory of 5 million homes into 55 distinct groups, celebrating the creativity and joy inherent in Airbnb stays.

It allowed Airbnb to authentically introduce its brand to a broader audience while maintaining its core identity.

The campaign ran in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, London, Paris, Marseille, Berlin, Hamburg, Milan, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Sydney and Melbourne.
