Today we are excited to announce the 1,000,000th night booked since our launch in August 2008. With one million nights booked so far, we have connected people with diverse backgrounds from 182 countries around the world. Our community ranges from professors to architects, musicians to nurses, and work for such employers as Google and the United Nations. Today, even if you haven’t yet used Airbnb, there is a good chance you know someone who has.


While we take today to celebrate this incredible milestone, we remain focused on innovating and designing the best user experience possible in order to connect even more people around the globe. With recent funding from Sequoia Capital and Greylock Partners, we’ve been able to respond to the desires of our community in order to move beyond the traditional ‘vacation rental’ model to establish a site that gives you the ability to book online, any type of space imaginable; from rooms, apartments and houses, to cars, boats and planes, to spaces for things such as parking or events. We look forward to the next million nights booked, and remain committed to continually improving your experience with us. On behalf of the entire Airbnb Team, thank you all for making Airbnb such an inspiring community and rewarding pursuit.

-Brian Chesky, CEO and Co-Founder

    bravo! I felt bad after that "incident" a few months ago. I hope you guys keep doing your thing. I loved using apartmemt share services when I lived in Berlin, so I hope air bnb can take off in the United States. There really has to be another alternative to hotels! cool.
