CHIP ROGERS, PRESIDENT and CEO of American Hotel & Lodging Association, is joining the cast of a magazine-style television series “Hotels ByDesign.” The program’s host Mike Chapman will showcase up to 35 hotels across the U.S. throughout its four half-hour episodes.
Rogers will be part of a panel of architectural, innovation and industry experts who will discuss key design aspects of various hotels, AHLA said in a statement.
“Hotels are at the cutting edge of informed design, as brands and hotel companies are constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of guests,” Rogers said. “I’m excited to work with Hotels ByDesign to showcase the beauty and ingenuity of our industry.”
“It is with great pleasure that we turn our design lens towards hotels and vacation experiences,” said Chapman, who also serves as the series’ executive producer. “ByDesign continues the design conversation in front of a mainstream American and international audience, celebrating, commentating, and educating on excellent design. We are excited to be collaborating with the AHLA as we embark on new adventures – broadening our audience and telling exceptional design stories together.”
Hotels ByDesign will air Saturdays in May on WCBS-TV in New York and KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, the CBS News Streaming Network, all CBS News mobile apps and on the ByDesign portal, the statement added.
AHLA recently announced it would host the inaugural General Manager Summit at “The Hospitality Show” on June 28 at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. The event will be held annually and bring together hotel GMs from across the country to hear from expert speakers, share best practices and network.
