Members as Keynote at Conference
and motivating employees to be passionate about their work
RANDOLPH, N.J. — SEPTEMBER 30, 2003 — WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIF.—One of
the leading advocates for fair relationships between hotel owners/operators
and the properties/brands they manage has been selected to speak at this
year's annual meeting of the Best Value Inn Hotel Group.
The Best Value Inns conference takes place Dec. 8-10 in Las Vegas. In little more than four years, Best Value has grown to be a national chain with nearly 300 properties and 17,000 guestrooms.
Since leaving Ramada after 11 years as its president, Belmonte launched Hospitality Solutions LLC to provide nationwide service to hotel owners who need assistance in dealing with franchise companies. Belmonte provides fair-franchise agreement negotiations and also handles termination and liquidated-damages claims. He also is a principal with Belmonte/Lasky Asset Management Inc.
"We have a tremendous amount of respect for what Steve Belmonte has accomplished in his career in the hotel industry, and more so now that he has taken on a task that is very much needed in our industry," Bloss said. "He has proven time again that he is a leader in this industry because of his innovative outlook and his ability to lead a hotel company in difficult, as well as strong economic times.
"Steve has a natural delivery style that suits him well for the lodging industry," Bloss said. "He is the type of speaker who creates value for his audience merely by their being in attendance for his presentation."
Belmonte said that speaking to members of a chain such as Best Value is a particularly exciting assignment for him considering the fast growth track attained by the brand.
"Best Value is a strong organization with membership that recognizes the value of being a part of an organization that is young and growing quickly," Belmonte said.
Belmonte said he is going to touch on the importance of a hotel owner creating a strong relationship with his or her employees.
"I want my audience to consider the possibilities that exist for their hotels and companies if they are able to put their employees on career paths," Belmonte said. "They will learn about the advantages that exist when you give employees a sense of partnership in the business."
Best Value Inn is a national brand affiliation with six regional offices throughout the U.S. and headquarters in Westlake Village, Calif. For more information regarding membership, call 888-316-2378. or visit bestvalueinn.com
