Hunter Hotel Conference organizers, Hunter Hotel Advisors, decided to cancel the event after originally postponing it.

ORGANIZERS HAVE CANCELLED the Hunter Hotel Conference for 2020. Previously the event had been postponed.

The conference had originally been scheduled for March 18 to 20 in downtown Atlanta. Then, on March 11, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and President Trump declared a national emergency in the U.S. shortly thereafter.

“Whether we’re architects, attorneys, brokers, consultants, contractors, franchisors, investors, lenders, management companies, media members or play some other roll in our industry, we’ve all experienced the unprecedented over the last few weeks,” said Lee Hunter, COO of Hunter Hotel Advisors that conducts the conference, in a message to event sponsors on Wednesday. “Given the uncertainty of the situation moving forward and with an abundance of caution for everyone’s physical heath as well as the health of everyone’s businesses during this situation, we are canceling the 2020 Hunter Hotel Investment Conference.”

Hunter said holding the event in late June or early July would not be appropriate. Next year’s conference is scheduled for March 9 to 11.

AAHOA rescheduled its 2020 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show in Orlando from April to Aug. 9 to 12. Those plans remain intact.
