More than 50 companies will be in Las Vegas to showcase the latest in Construction, Design, F&B, FF&E, Franchising, Finance, Pest Control, Purchasing, Textile, Uniforms and more; Attend ILES May 15 to 17 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

[Phoenix – March 14, 2017]Finding the right forum where independent hotel owners and operators can shop the latest products and services has traditionally been challenging – until now. At the 2017 InnDependent Lodging Executive Summit (ILES), to be held May 15 to 17 at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, hoteliers in this niche segment – plus those operating Soft Brands – will have the chance to get up close and personal with some of lodging’s best suppliers. More than 50 companies will be represented, each eager to meet with hoteliers over three days to display their wares and discuss attendees’ needs.

Hoteliers can register for ILES event by clicking here.

ILES is co-produced by IBC (InnDependent Boutique Collection), the Independent Lodging Industry Assn. (ILIA) and Hotel Interactive – and it is sponsored by Asian Hospitality, Hotel News Now, Hotel Management and Lodging magazines. In addition to the tradeshow, ILES will provide two days of informative educational sessions. For the first time, BITAC Independent (a Hotel Interactive event) will be held in conjunction with ILES.

“ILES is great for independent hoteliers and those managing soft brands to learn how to operate efficiently and effectively,” said Pamela Barnhill, ILES founder. “It’s equally as productive for our exhibitors, as it gives them exposure to the difficult-to-reach independent hotel owner or operator. Participants can choose between a standard tabletop exhibit space in the Networking Lounge, an ‘elite’ exhibit space that includes an F&B cooking station, or they can participate in the first ever ‘BITAC Independent’ which includes 20 scheduled private meeting appointments with top level corporate decision-makers. In all, it’s an event that hoteliers and exhibitors won’t soon forget.”

Exhibiting companies at the 2017 ILES event include:

“As publicity for ILES continues, and word of mouth spreads, we are fielding calls daily from suppliers asking to sign up,” Barnhill said. “Not only will ILES give them exposure to a coveted audience, but they can meet with independent hoteliers in the nation’s leading gaming destination – which also happens to be a mecca of independent hotels. ILES 2017 is quickly shaping up to be a marketplace like no other. If you want to join in the fun, then don’t delay; register today.”
