This year, one in eight Americans will stay in a short-term rental. By 2025, that will increase to one in five. Short-term rentals have been around for centuries—but now they are finally becoming the most popular option in travel. International short-term rental safety expert Justin Ford, Director of Safety & Certification Programs at Breezeway, will share an overview of the short-term rental industry in Michigan, and the world and showcase the importance of safety when it comes to rentals. The rise in the use of short-term rentals has led to the rise in accidents as well. Justin will share what we have learned from some recent accidents and how they can be prevented in the future.
