Meet the Money® hotel finance Conference:
“Bridging the Gap and Facilitating the Flow of Capital”
May 2-4, 2011, at Sheraton Gateway in Los Angeles

Debt and equity financing for hotels is back! Hotel transactions are rolling again. And the Global Hospitality Group® of Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP (JMBM) has announced the 2011 Meet the Money® hotel finance conference to explore the latest opportunities in the capital stack with “Bridging the Gap and Facilitating the Flow of Capital.”

Because the investment community is showing keen interest in the hotel sector and the transactional pace is picking up quickly, this will be a very upbeat conference this year. Our ‘Bridging the Gap’ theme deals with the critical issues that hotel owners and investors are facing in today’s financial environment: narrowing the difference between sellers’ ask price and buyers’ bid price, finding missing pieces of the capital stack to meet the agreed-upon price or value, and structuring deals so owners, buyers, and lenders can all benefit.

Dozens of industry experts at Meet the Money® will participate on panels that include:

  • What are the real players doing?
  • Creating value in a brave new world: lenders, receivers, investors
  • Rebranding and repositioning for enhanced value
  • Who’s doing transactions and how?
  • Underwriting a deal in the current market

As hospitality sector fundamentals continue to improve, hotel investors are actively pursuing deals. Smart industry players have found creative ways to unlock value in hotel assets and get deals done. Meet the Money® will help owners, investors, developers and capital providers understand the new investment reality and its risks and rewards.

Please join me at Meet the Money® in Los Angeles, May 2-4, 2011!
