This week it was announced both the InnDependent Lodging Executive Summit Powered by IBC and the Diversity Summit in Hospitality Procurement will be an integral part of the hospitality industry’s most stimulating and productive experience.
Both of these incredible programs are exclusively part of HI Connect® 2016, which returns to the Gaylord Opryland Resort and the state-of-the-art HI Connect® Design Studio in Nashville from March 17-19, 2016. Registration for all three co-located events is now open at www.hiconnectevents.com. If you are looking to build relationships within the independent lodging community or to develop a meaningful diversity program, this event is the place to be.
The InnDependent Boutique Collection features more than 6,300 members representing more than 2,000,000 guestrooms, and its members along with technology partners will be an integral part of HI Connect®.
The Diversity Summit in Hospitality Procurement will highlight how businesses such as those owned by classified stakeholders can be more active in the hotel business. Qualifying businesses include those owned by Women, African Americans, Veterans and other groups as classified by the SBA, such as Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans and Subcontinent Asian Americans.
Overall, the 2015 edition of HI Connect® was a hotel experience like no other event. It’s the only trade show with solely pre-qualified industry decision-makers enjoying the most exciting event created for the hospitality sphere. In 2016, expect an even more robust show experience, this time with an added independent and technology tilt as well as a significant emphasis on building industry diversity.
In addition to HI Connect®’s traditional educational forum, a slate of educational panels focusing on critical issues facing independent hotel owners will be curated by IBC and a host of panels focusing on diversity will also be introduced.
HI Connect® is the hospitality experience reimagined. It is the only event where to attend you must be qualified and it serves as a unique opportunity to also interact with 100% real environments, or "vignettes," no booths, while connecting with business building contacts.
HI Connect® simultaneously stimulates all five senses much like independent and boutique hotels while helping suppliers and designers foster critical relationships with influential owners, developers, hoteliers, designers, suppliers and purchasing professionals. Unparalleled networking and inspiration are only the beginning of what’s to be discovered at HI Connect®.
