is a place of discovery, collaboration and idea generation for owners and operators of independent hotels. Through meaningful and relevant panels, deep dive breakouts, and of course, great food and beverage, we strive to connect visionaries and thought leaders inside (and outside) the independent lodging sector for the betterment of our industry and the guests we serve.
We are a marketplace of ideas for high-profile hoteliers, restaurateurs, developers, financiers and creatives with a passion for breaking the status-quo. Overall, our community controls at least 500 properties across the U.S. This is where meaningful business relationships begin, grow and flourish.
We serve to connect you, challenge you, and inspire you. That’s why we include trailblazers from both inside + outside the hospitality industry. These are our speakers from 2018.
