Is Casual, the Thinking Is Not
IHC 2005 — Focusing on Financial and Management Strategies
for European Hotels - 12-14 September, Monte Carlo, Monaco
|Monte Carlo, Monaco — (24 March 2005) The third
annual International Hotel Conference, produced by 40-year hotel industry
veteran Morris Lasky, president and C.E.O. of Chicago-based hotel-management
company Lodging Unlimited Inc., has set a new standard in continuing education
for European hotel management. The event is scheduled to be held at Le
Méridien Beach Plaza, Monte Carlo, Monaco, 12-14 September 2005.
“Our goal with this year’s International Hotel Conference, as with the previous two, is to offer targeted, useful, topical sessions that will provide attendees with innovative information and ideas,” Lasky said. “We will feature a roster of superb speakers whom we think do an excellent job of stimulating the audience of upper-level hoteliers and financiers who are in attendance.
“About the only thing casual at this conference is the dress code,” he said.
Lasky, along with Conference Co-chair Mary Lou Koys, Executive Vice President of Lodging Unlimited, assembled a virtual who’s-who of more than 100 international hotel-industry professionals to serve as speakers during sessions covering topics ranging from marketing, travel trends and financing to hotel design, crucial legal issues and Internet booking—and most everything in between.
A partial list of 2005 speakers includes:
Educational think tank sessions will include:
“Attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with major lenders who will work with them to answer their specific questions and provide the information necessary to get a deal financed,” Lasky said.
A Partial List of Lenders includes: Aareal Bank AG, Barclays Bank Plc, Bazarian International Associates, L.L.C., Calyon Corporate and Investment Bank, Deutsche Bank AG London, HSH Nordbank AG – NY Branch and Morgan Stanley.
“We’re thrilled with the growth, response and feedback we’re getting from this European conference series,” Lasky said. “Our educational seminars, panels and think-tank sessions are drawing hotel professionals from around the world. That tells us that our objective of providing top-quality networking opportunities in a casual atmosphere in one of the most beautiful locations in the world is truly being appreciated.
“The 2005 International Hotel Conference is expected to be bigger and better than ever,” he added. “We always wanted to be the industry’s premier ‘must attend’ event, and if the response we’re getting about this year’s conference is any indication, we’ll reach that goal in no time.”
Exhibitor and Sponsor opportunities are available to companies looking to spotlight their product and service expertise during the conference, Lasky said.
