Recent Client Press: Mercedes-Benz Vans and Airbnb team up for a unique collaboration


To celebrate the arrival of the new Marco Polo ACTIVITY van, Mercedes– Benz Vans teamed up with Airbnb to offer a unique, once off glamping experience on the iconic Cockatoo Island, Sydney.

Bringing the spirit of the Marco Polo ACTIVITY to life, the van was fitted out with a comfy bed and the lucky adventurers got to spend one night in the modern day ‘glamper van’. Australia’s leading stylist and celebrated author Megan Morton gave her magic touch to the vans, adding her ‘must–haves’ when glamping. Not only did guests wake up to the stunning view of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sonoma Bakery delivered a range of freshly baked goods for breakfast.

The collaboration with Airbnb picked up attention from The Urban List Sydney  and Broadsheet Sydney, while Sunrise took advantage of the stunning views of the harbour and filmed their morning weather crosses on location, using the vans as their backdrop.
