Airbnb has launched a global media review, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The instant accommodation and travel brand currently works with Starcom for its Europe and US markets.
The pitch is being led out of Asia, and Airbnb hopes it is short-lived, sources told Campaign US. It was not immediately clear if the review is being handled internally or by an external consultant.
The brand is home to a sizeable in-house team that looks after performance marketing.
Airbnb awarded Starcom its global media business back in September 2014. It is understood that Dentsu Aegis Network handles some media for Airbnb in Asia.
Wieden + Kennedy won global creative rights for Airbnb in September 2017.
Starcom declined to comment.
Campaign US has contacted Airbnb and Dentsu Aegis for comment.
Last October, Airbnb hired former Ford executive Musa Tariq as head of marketing and experiences, a newly created role for the company.
The agency's Chicago office will manage the San Francisco-based company's global media strategy and US activation. Global media spending could approach $40 million to $50 million next year.
