Those Two LeWeb Tickets Now Include Lodging Thanks To Airbnb. Tell Us Why You Need To Go

Yesterday, I noted that we were giving away two free tickets to LeWeb ’10. But I was quick to point out that while the free tickets, normally priced at around 2,000 euros, are a great deal, you would still have to pay for your own travel to Paris and lodging for the conference, which takes place on December 8 and 9. Well guess what? You can cross lodging off of that list.

Airbnb has graciously offered to cover the lodging in Paris for each winner of our ticket giveaway. Each winner would receive a $500 gift card from Airbnb which they could use to find a place to stay in or around Paris during the conference. Airbnb offers some great deals around the city, so you should be able to find something very nice with that money. And that means that if you win, you would only have to pay for your own travel to the conference. Yes, it’s a killer deal.

The same rules to win the tickets apply: just leave us a comment as to why you absolutely need to go to this conference. You can leave the comment either on this post or on the original one. We’ll be going through them all on Monday and will select a winner.

Update: We’ve selected two winners from the over 300 comments and have reached out to them. Thanks everyone for your thoughtful replies. We’ll definitely be doing more giveaways like this in the future, stay tuned.
