2018: A Year of ILES Learning
The InnDependent Lodging Executive Summit was founded years ago as the first industry event dedicated to independent hoteliers and boutique lodging. While many call it a hot trend, this segment makes up 1/2 of the world’s hotels and is growing. We are excited as independent hoteliers that there are many more events and meetings dedicated to our market segment.
In 2018, instead of focusing on one large event, we are focused on several targeted learning-based webinars and smaller ILES meetings at larger industry events.
Cultivate new relationships and strengthen existing ones while enjoying relevant information to improve your hospitality business.
