“Our members and savvy investors told us that interest in hotel investments remains high, but restrained due to the economy and a general desire to cut expenses,” said Angela Gonzalez-Rowe, founder and president of the Hispanic Hotel Owners Association. “We have adapted our format accordingly and, where possible, will schedule our regional events to coincide with major hotel conventions, like the Lodging Conference. The regional meetings will give attendees an opportunity to network with the major brands, lenders, developers, management companies and other key players, as well as obtain important insights into the hotel economy and investing.” The new format in Phoenix will consist of:
