Meet the Money® 2017: Opportunity or Peril?
Finding the right key to the right door

The US hospitality industry faces many challenges in 2017–availability of debt and equity financing, declining hotel values, new supply growth, and a general sense of uncertainty surrounding forecasts and economic trends.

Meet the Money®, the national hotel finance and investment conference, will gather the top hotel experts from around the country to debate the strategies that will help you find the opportunities and avoid the perils coming up in the next year.

With plenty of time for networking with other hotel developers, owners, investors, operators, lenders and capital providers, Meet the Money® 2017 is the place to kick off the year ahead and build relationships that lead to deals and success.

Meet the Money® 2017 will be held May 8-10, 2017 in Los Angeles, at the Hyatt Regency LAX.

To reserve your room with our group rate (available until April 1), visit the Venue and Reservations page.

Registration is $1,150. Onsite registration will be available when the conference starts.
