About hotel opportunities conference

Join the industry’s key players at the HOTELS Opportunities Conference.

HOTELS is hosting an in-person event in Miami on March 31 at the Mandarin Oriental focusing on Deals, Workouts and Access to capital.

Panels will highlight how to pivot and reinvent during COVID-19, educate about workout options, gain access to new funding sources, teach how to finance new acquisitions, finding distressed hotel deals and discuss federal and local assistance.

The current COVID market has shifted the norm. This event will be held in-person with plenty of social distancing.. We will take all reasonable COVID precautions. With this in mind, we feel it’s time to start hosting in-person events in order to support the industry.

Whether you are an executive, a hotel owner, an investor or a capital source, this information and our panelists will help bring you current.

Mingle with hundreds of attendees, and meet other hotel owners, investors, debt funds, senior lenders, executives, hotel brokers and others involved in the hospitality space.

The conference, which is launched by the leading global hotel industry publication Hotels Magazine, will feature interactive and educational panels, business exhibits, keynote speeches and a cocktail VIP mixer.

Through our extensive network industry experts, the industry-wide conference can help keep you updated about the latest in the industry.
