Why Become a Member?
The Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association (BLLA) is the first organization to unite independent luxury, boutique and lifestyle property owners and offer them the opportunity to successfully compete on a level playing field with major hotel companies and market themselves to meet the ever-increasing demand from discerning boutique-seeking clients. As such, BLLA property owners and members have the chance to take control of their industry—how it’s defined and represented and how it will grow and evolve in the future—to ensure the boutique and lifestyle sector reaps the rewards it deserves.
BLLA members have access to an ever-growing menu of important tools needed for building, expanding and maintaining their properties. BLLA members also have access to “untapped” boutique customers through a new website launching first quarter 2017 called StayBoutique™, boutique-specific marketing tools, resources, news, and information—ultimately benefitting from a number of powerful distribution channels designed to deliver incremental upscale revenue through bookings. BLLA also provides counsel; hosts events; promotes member properties through various channels and gives access to research papers, webinars, and industry reports that are accompanied by a whole host of helpful and practical education and business development resources.
Through an alliance with UCLA Extension, BLLA is helping create a new educational program specifically for the luxury boutique and lifestyle lodging sector.
BLLA provides our members with the ability to access relevant information and connections, crucial relationships and the necessary tools to navigate through this rapidly-growing industry
