Q1 Event Highlight Reel

Q1 Event: The Human Factor | March 3, 2022. 9am - 12pm PST

 Understanding our international customers within the cultural context of their regional environment


9:00-9:05 am - GlobalSaké2022 Kickoff and Welcome message

9:15-10 am - Panel:  "Love Localization" What does "Love" mean in different cultures and countries across the globe? How is a German-native dating app different from a US-native dating app experience? What is the cultural nuance in love and sexual wellness products? We kickstart our 2022 annual program with this exciting panel discussion, sharing product localization case studies from Tinder, LOVOO, and LELO, representing rounded perspectives on the "Human Factor" in international growth out of different HQ geographies. We'll talk about product geo-fit and value prop repositioning for adoption in different markets. We'll explore how the global pandemic has influenced the behavior of online remote dating, has dictated the "slow pace" in sexual wellness, and has brought back the focus on Human.

Q&A Moderator:

10:30-11 am - Fireside Chat: Connecting Through Home: Airbnb Case Study, enabling real-time multilingual communication between hosts and travelers around the globe. Airbnb's global growth success story is much reliant on the attention to cultural nuance and enhanced communication between hosts and guests across languages and regions. In the intimacy of the Home, the Human factor--trust and connection between worldwide hosts and guests--is at the core of the business. In this fireside chat, we'll explore the recent launch of The Translation Engine, a close collaboration between Airbnb &, and the balance between humans and machines co-creation.
