Phoenix — Planning of the 2017 InnDependent Lodging Executive Summit is nearing completion, and the line-up of educational sessions will not disappoint. Produced by IBC (InnDependent Boutique Collection) and the Independent Lodging Industry Assn. (ILIA) – and sponsored by Asian Hospitality, Hotel News Now, Hotel Management and Lodging magazines – the event will be held May 15 to 17 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In addition, Hotel Interactive will be producing the first BITAC Independent in conjunction with event. Independent hoteliers and those operating Soft Brands can register to attend the conference by clicking here.
“ILES 2017 will not only be bigger and better than ever before, but our educational sessions will tackle some of the leading issues and business practices impacting today’s independent hoteliers,” said Pamela Barnhill, founder of ILES and president and chief operating officer of IBC. “We polled past attendees to see what topics are of the most interest to them and which would provide them with the best insight for improving operations going forward. The program we put together is both interactive and informative, with high-profile moderators setting the tone and directing the conversations for engaging commentary and discussions.”
Here is a sneak peek of some of the sessions coming to ILES 2017:
“Bringing ILES to Las Vegas is especially exciting because it gives us the opportunity to leverage the expertise of independent hoteliers in the nation’s leading gaming destination and network with operators who have not previously attended this growing event,” Barnhill said. “In addition to the conference, for the first time, Hotel Interactive will conduct BITAC Independent. Traditionally, BITAC events have been exceptionally successful when in Las Vegas. By tying BITAC Independent with ILES, we providing a marketplace like no other that hoteliers are sure to enjoy.”
