How Couchsurfing Works: Couchsurfing is a service that connects members to a global community of travelers. Use Couchsurfing to find a place to stay or share your home and hometown with travelers. Couchsurfers organize regular events in 100,000 cities around the world. There’s always something to do and new friends to meet.

To get started with couchsurfing:

First step? Completely fill out your Couchsurfing profile! This will be your home base and is a reflection of you: your lifestyle, your mission and what’s important to you. Having a complete profile is the best way to connect with people – whether it’s going to your city’s weekly event or hosting a guest. Here you can tell people if you’re traveling or would like to host. Be sure to include photos.

    Couple items.

    First, great to see the conference happening. Thank you organizers!

    I will be visiting from Eugene, Oregon, good timing with the conference.

    Can someone connect me with the hospitality person? I would like to find a home stay.

    Also. Can someone connect me with the registration [or ride coordinator if there is one] person? I would like to find a ride towards NYC after the conference. New Haven is good, closer to NYC even better. [Brooklyn]

    Thank you!
