Published on

For 11 years, the Hospitality Law Conference has converged the country's hospitality thought leaders, breaking down silos, creating cross-functional dialogues for more effective execution and career enhancement. Lawyers have learned about the financial aspects of deals and the financial experts get a better understanding of the legal and compliance aspects. We also break down the barriers between legal, risk, loss prevention and HR for the operation. Together we do more deals, and we make hotels and restaurants safer and more secure for customers and employees. The Conference provides intensive education (CLE,CPE, HRCI and EI credit) and exceptional networking among legal, development, risk, finance, HR and operations.

The Pre-Conference Workshops, including the Owner-Management Summit, includes intensive education in the following verticals:

- Owner-Management Summit
- New Hotel Development
- Management Agreements
- Hotel Investments Boot Camp
- Hotel and Restaurant Corporate Counsel Only
- The Convergence of Risk Management, Legal Compliance and Loss Prevention

The Hospitality Law Conference begins on February 12th with general sessions as well as break-out sessions in three different topic areas in the following verticals:
