hotel conferences for 2023
The American Hotel & Lodging Association will host 17 “On the Road” State Hotel Conferences in collaboration with its state or city lodging association partners.

THE AMERICAN HOTEL & Lodging Association has announced the dates, cities, and registration information for its “On the Road” State Hotel Conferences for 17 states in 2023.

The conferences will provide hoteliers, suppliers, and service providers opportunities to connect with their peers as well as hospitality and policy leaders to learn about the latest news and information affecting the hotel and lodging industry, AHLA said in a statement.

Anyone who works in the hotel industry can attend these half-day, free events, it added.

“AHLA’s ‘On The Road’ State Hotel Conferences are designed to help local hoteliers connect with their peers, gain insights on national and local market business performance trends and learn from top hospitality leaders, service providers and policy experts,” said Chip Rogers, AHLA president and CEO. “The events are also a vital tool to help AHLA build coalitions, grow our grassroots network and rally hoteliers around the industry’s goals and initiatives. We are excited to bring AHLA’s successful On The Road State Hotel Conference series to a record number of cities in 2023.”

AHLA will host these conferences in partnership with its state or city lodging association partners. Since starting with four events in 2021, AHLA’s On The Road State Hotel Conferences have brought together thousands of hoteliers in cities across the nation. Last year, 11 events were held.

A recent AHLA survey has revealed that a bipartisan solution to the federal immigration issue is needed to reduce the still ongoing labor shortage for hotels.
