23rd Hunter Hotel Investment Conference Logs Near-record Pre-registrations,
Reflecting Rapidly Rising Confidence in Hotel Industry’s Outlook

Larger than Expected Number of Lenders Registered

ATLANTA, February 23, 2011—Officials of the upcoming Hunter Hotel Investment Conference, one of the four major national annual hotel investment conferences, today said that a faster than anticipated hotel industry recovery has resulted in unexpectedly high pre-event registrations for the Conference to be held March 6-8 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Georgia.
“Pre-registration is the second highest in our 23-year history,” said Bob Hunter, CEO of Hunter Realty and conference co-chair.  “Rising occupancies and positive movement in average daily room rate have certainly brightened the outlook.  Feedback from registrants indicates high interest in doing transactions and the improving financing environment”

A key indicator of the prevailing optimism is a return of lenders in large numbers to the conference, according to Lee Hunter, conference co-chair.  “We already have 24 lenders attending and expect that number to climb,” he said.  “With substantially more hotels coming to market, both by owners and special servicers, we are already seeing considerable activity on the transaction front.  We expect a lot of interest in our panels on hotel values, ranging from what’s my hotel worth to buying and selling today.”
The conference is targeted to hotel owners and draws the largest percentage of investors and owners of all the major hotel investment conferences.  Content this year is designed to provide that group with the creative strategies to take maximum advantage of the rebound.  The Hunter Hotel Investment Conference will present more than 100 speakers from 27 states in 25 sessions.
