Press Release on the Conference

This Week's BLLA Commentary

BLLA Thanks You!

THANK YOU!

We’re still buzzing from an amazing event at the UCLA Luskin conference center. We at BLLA are passionate about representing the boutique community and with the completion of the sixth installment of the Stay Boutique Leadership Conference, we feel as though we are doing just that.

Once overlooked and written off, boutique hotels and businesses have established themselves as a force. Our strength comes from our agility and attention to detail, and our inspiration comes from each other. We couldn’t have had such an informative and invigorating event without the support of the community, and can’t wait to see what you all will do with the newly imparted knowledge.

We were able to join together an eclectic line up of presenters from every area of the hospitality sector. Bill Walshe, the CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group shared with us about why cultivating a proud work environment leads to the success of a property. Kevin Osterhaus, the President of SIXTY Hotels and Riley Eggers, the Executive Producer at Pineapple Creative spoke about their innovative approaches to marketing a boutique establishment. Sam Nazarian, the CEO of sbe imparted best practices for facilitating success at properties worldwide.

From candy shops to coffee houses, the boutique experience has never been more accessible. You don’t need to be a hotel in order to cultivate a feeling of community. Thank you for supporting us in doing just that!

Big things are on the horizon for the world of boutique. We will gather again on June 6th in New York for the Boutique Hotel Investment Conference. We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces there as we continue to push our sector to new heights. https://www.bllanewyork.com/.

 After Vegas shooting, no simple path for hotel security
 A shooting this week in Las Vegas in which the gunman fired down on a concert crowd from his guestroom on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has raised countless questions for law enforcement, legislators and the public at large.
 For hoteliers, the questions are: Could it have been prevented? And what can be done to make it more difficult for something like this to happen again, at another hotel?
