Tracktown Townhome

Value Proposition

The Tracktown Townhome provides its guests with not just a comfortable stay, but a cultivated experience that highlights Eugene, Oregon’s rich track and field history through hands-on activities and amenities to infuse education and excitement for the local history.

The Problem 

Hotels and rental properties in Eugene provide comfortable stays but are typically overpriced when sporting events and university functions are taking place. They also lack the details and amenities to entertain and educate the guests on the local area and its history. 

The Solution

The Tracktown Townhome Airbnb is more than just an affordable and comfortable stay, providing historical hands-on learning experiences and exciting amenities and entertainment to make guests feel like track stars. 

Target Market

The primary market for the Tracktown Townhome is young couples and families with active children interested in having an interactive vacation experience. The secondary target market is athletes and sports enthusiasts coming to Eugene for vacation or track events. 

Young couples and families with active children are the primary target market:

  1. They are physically active and want the opportunity to burn off some energy in the comfort of their Airbnb.
  2. They have a strong interest in learning through hands-on experiences.
  3. They are technologically savvy and would appreciate the opportunity to play around with devices in the rental unit.
  4. There is an enthusiasm for sports and famous athletes.
  5. They want the experience of learning and entertainment through their vacation to not end when at their Airbnb.
