As I left the snowy East Coast, I began to dream of warm weather (and found it in LA for CitySCENE and the NEWH Regional Tradeshow, tonight and tomorrow respectively). In my thoughts, I realized HD Expo in Las Vegas May 14-16th is going to be here before we know it. The conference sessions are about 90 percent complete, and if I can brag for a second, we have another stellar lineup:
Brand leaders from Morgans Hotel Group, Commune Hotels + Resorts, and Generator Hostels discussing targeting the influential and ever evolving Millennial customer.
Our signature event, HD/ISHP Owners’ Roundtable, with some 30 hotel brand executives, owners, and developers.
Keynoter Michael Bedner, chairman of the board of HBA, discussing his career highlights with HD’s Michael Adams.
Bringing our story from the December issue to life, one panel dives into the largest hospitality construction project in the world—in Makkah.
Chef Michael Mina with AvroKO’s Adam Farmerie, and chef Victor Albisu and CORE’s Allison Cooke, will give insight to successful designer-chef collaborations.
And that’s just a sampling (five to be exact) of the more than 20 conference sessions that are sure to inspire and inform.
Hope to see you there!
