  • 2. Greetings from the President & Founder of HospitalityLawyer.com It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2011 Hospitality Law Conference, held in Houston, Texas from Wednesday, February 9 through Friday, February 11, 2011. This year, to enable us to provide even greater depth to the presentations and conversations, we are expanding the Pre-Conference Workshops to a full day on February 9. The Pre-Conference Workshops are designed specifically for Hotel & Restaurant In-House Counsel; Hospitality Real Estate Transactions; and Information Protection and Privacy, including Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. The Hospitality Law Conference begins on February 10, with ex- citing sessions delivered by industry thought leaders, built to bring you up to speed and anticipate future issues to assist you in your performance. We look forward to seeing you there. V e r y b e s t r e g a r d s , S t e p he n B a r t h ABOUT THE CONFERENCE From alcohol and food liability to labor and employment, and from the BP oil spill to spas, the latest trends and issues in hospitality law, safety, and security are up for exploration at the 2011 Hospitality Law Conference, February 9-11. New to the Pre-Conference Workshop are “boot camp” ses- sions in the Real Estate Workshop, dedicated to attorneys and executives in the development area to fully integrate the economic, financial and legal aspects of the deal. Ex- plore the financial and the legal implications of pro forma statements, hotel agreements, and more. Also new to the 2011 conference are sessions dedicated specifically to hotel in-house counsel and to restaurant in-house counsel. Back by popular demand, the“Hospitality Case Review”pre- sentation will explore the impact the top 100 cases from 2010 will have on our industry. This Hospitality Law Conference provides break-out ses- sions in four different topic areas, including Food & Bever- age, Lodging, Human Resources & Labor Relations, and Loss Prevention and Risk Management. Attend the WineTasting & Product Showcase and be eligible to win a $1000.00 American Express gift card. The Wine Tast- ing offers great wine and great opportunities to learn about the latest compliance solutions. The recipient must be pres- ent to win. Make plans to stay until the end of the conference to be eli- gible to win a $500.00 American Express gift card. The win- ner’s name will be drawn during Stephen Barth’s Closing Re- marks on Friday, February 11. The recipient must be present to win. The conference is presented in coordination with the Gen- eral Counsel Committee of the AH&LA, the International Bar Association, and the Loss Prevention Management Institute.
