To our Innkeeping Industry Partners,
My most important message: We heard you! The 2016 Trade Show will be improved for YOU!
First of all, I’m pleased to be the Conference Manager for the 2016 conference and show – and I am very excited to make improvements on the trade show, in particular.
As some of you know, I was on “your side of the table” in my previous life – as a manufacturer, my company exhibited in about 30 shows every year. So, I do understand your challenges, andI can to make the 2016 show successful for all of us. Here are some of the improvements we already have planned:
In addition, the Welcome reception will be held in the exhibit hall, so that even those who attend the pre-conference workshop will be sure to join us on the trade show floor around 5:30.
This means we will be starting the conference programming earlier each morning and shortening the breakouts by a few minutes in order to provide this extra time for trade show.
This industry is small and we all need each other to thrive…you value the Innkeepers as your customers and Innkeepers cannot run their businesses without reliable suppliers like you.
We are grateful for your past support, and we truly hope you’ll be part of our “new and improved 2016 Innkeeping Conference & Trade Show!
Pleaot hesitate to send me your comments, questions or ideas – I look forward to working with you to make the biggest and best show ever.
And, don’t forget our Early Bird promotion for trade show booths running now through June 10. Buy now for the best possible price. http://www.
See you in Austin!
