Berlin, Germany 6-8 May 2015
ICMA “Classifieds in a Sharing Economy” Conference

The Sharing Economy, also known as Collaborative Consumption or the Peer-to-Peer Movement, is a trending business concept that highlights the ability for individuals to rent goods rather than own them. This new business structure was made possible by social technologies in the mid-2000s, and has certainly arrived in a big way. Some of the most well-known examples like eBay, Citi Bike and Airbnb, demonstrate how we each have productive assets that are unused for much of the time, (for example your spare bedroom or parking space) and the Sharing Economy allows individuals to monetise these assets. How does this affect the classifieds industry and what can you do to adapt to the challenges posed by the Sharing Economy?
