The newest update to the For You tab sends a list of events happening in the vacation spot a user plans to go to months in advance

Airbnb plans to expand away from customers simply renting out homes or rooms while the owners spend time away. The newest change they’ve added happened under their For You tab, which notifies users about events happening in the area upon arrival to their vacation destination.

Originally, it only notified a user about events happening in their immediate area. The newest update prepares travelers by sending them updates in advance about things they’ll have to book to reserve a spot. Many of these events will get curated with a central theme.

This update was added only travelers headed to to Cap Town, Florence, Los Angeles, Miami, Paris, and Tokyo, and displays these events in English.
