MIAMI, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travelers with the most diverse range of amazing places to stay, has partnered with vacation-rental thought leader Matt Landau to produce Season 2 of "A Sense of Place."
A show that explores the emerging world of vacation rentals and seeks to change the way people travel, "A Sense of Place" combines the feel of premium television with the immediacy and versatility offered by modern digital distribution. Season 2 premieres across digital platforms in November.
Hosted by Landau and produced by his longtime production team at TFP Company, Season 2 follows Landau to various corners of the globe to meet the inspiring hosts making the vacation rental movement happen. In an age of massive travel, finding the right home and host can be the key to unlocking a fun, sustainable, and rewarding trip for groups of any size.
As the world leader in booking accommodation online, Booking.com currently offers more than 28 million total reported listings across 30 different property types. This includes more than 5.5 million listings in homes, apartments, and other unique places to stay, with options in over 136,000 destinations in every corner of the globe. With such a broad offering in the vacation rental space, Booking.com is committed to showcasing the diverse range of personalized travel experiences these properties can offer.
"The chance to work with the team at Booking.com is so exciting because it allows us to further the mission of the show, which is to introduce travelers to the magic of vacation rentals," said Landau. "There's not a better company we could have chosen to do this with. And their respect and support of our vision feels like the ultimate dream-come-true relationship with a sponsor."
"The vacation rental industry is growing quickly and continuing to evolve in exciting ways as more people discover how satisfying and liberating it can be to stay in someone else's home when they travel, or even to consider listing a property themselves," said Olivier Grémillon, Vice President at Booking.com, who leads the company's strategy in homes and apartments. "We're very pleased to be working together with the team from "A Sense of Place" and are looking forward to inspiring even more travelers and owners through the stories we're planning to share together this season."
The first season of "A Sense of Place" saw Landau hunting for truffles in Le Marche, Italy, jumping off secret rope swings in Hawaii, and learning to fly fish in the Blue Ridge mountains. With destinations lined up in seven countries, Season 2 will double down on experiential travel and help usher the once-cottage industry into the mainstream. Production on "A Sense of Place" Season 2 begins July 18.
