About hotel opportunities conference

After a successful inaugural event in late March, HOTELS is launching its second HOTELS Opportunities Conference scheduled for Aug. 27 again at the luxury Mandarin Oriental Miami.

Focusing on private equity, debt markets, construction, unique development opportunities and more, panel discussions will educate attendees about best strategies for successful deal-making and development; what the near-term looks like for financing, design, development and project management; as well as how all parties can best work together to achieve the best outcomes.

As part of this event, HOTELS will present its annual “Oscars” of the hotel industry, the Hotelier of the World awards, as well as a new awards program recognizing the top 10 leaders in several categories.

The current COVID market has shifted the norm. This event will be held in-person with plenty of social distancing and all reasonable COVID precautions.

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 will include business exhibits, keynote speeches and a cocktail VIP mixer.
