Online accommodation start-up StayBillety launches partnership with Syracuse University
CAMBRIDGE, ON/SYRACUSE, NY (July 26, 2017) – Syracuse University Athletics (SU) and StayBillety.com are pleased to announce their partnership to help SU friends, families and fans find affordable housing when traveling. The multi-year affiliation agreement launched on the accommodation start-up today.
The partnership marks the first official U.S. affiliation agreement for the Cambridge, Ontario (Waterloo Region) based company.
With this agreement, StayBillety becomes the Official Online Accommodation Service of Syracuse University Athletics. Syracuse University is an NCAA Division I school and a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). The partnership serves the local Syracuse community and the broader, global community of SU fans, family and alumni.
“Demand is growing for reasonably priced accommodation alternatives for University sports and alumni events,” said Syracuse University Deputy Athletics Director – External Operations, Chris Fuller, “Syracuse residents and SU fans throughout North America can join the sharing economy, list their extra space on the site and welcome those who ‘Bleed Orange’.”
StayBillety Founder/CEO Barbara Jones said, “The SU Athletics Department recognizes the value of engaging and strengthening the SU community through our service. We look forward to connecting the Orange Nation.” StayBillety is available throughout North America.
Said Jones, “According to a recent emarketer report, almost 57 million Americans will use a sharing economy service this year. Accommodation costs can be a barrier to participation and attendance. Rather than host or stay with random strangers, StayBillety helps people who share interests share their space, and earn a little extra money at the same time.”
Jones is a Syracuse University alumna and Professor of Practice at the university’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
