OHLA Member Event, featuring the Vendor Expo STR 2022 Forecasting Lunch
9/7/2021 - 9/7/2021
About the Event THIS IS AN IN-PERSON EVENT WITH AN EXCITING NEW TWIST!
2020 was an incredibly challenging year for the lodging industry. One that required the OHLA to transition the January Lodging Summit into a virtual event. As a result, we have now included the much anticipated Vendor Expo as a part of our Summer membership event. And let's face it, by September we'll all be looking to make those personal connections once again! The day will begin with an exploration of the OHLA Vendor Expo, followed by our annual STR Forecasting Luncheon, and concludes with the OHLA Board of Directors Meeting.
It would be easy to remain at your property but don't. OHLA's Vendor Expo & STR Forecasting Luncheon will provide an excellent opportunity to visit with your hotel colleagues, make new connections, and acquire data to help you project your hotel's 2022 budget. We encourage you to schedule the time to gather and speak with other hoteliers about the biggest issues facing the lodging industry. The value of trade shows in 2021 goes far beyond the ability to see the latest products and services.
