Top hotel industry leaders converge for Executive Roundtable at Meet the Money®

30 April 2011

JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® will kick off the 21st annual Meet the Money® hospitality finance conference by hosting a pre-conference roundtable among hotel industry leaders.

The Hotel Business® 2011 Executive Roundtable–Capital Ideas: Financing Solutions For Opportunistic Dealmakers will take place Monday, May 2 at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles.

Hotel Business® has gathered some of the best minds in the industry to address topics that will continue to be explored on panel discussions and discussed in hallways for the next two days at Meet the Money®: the cost of equity and the price of debt, current deal structures and asset values, and more.

I am very pleased to be included in the Executive Roundtable dialog, but you can be assured that Hotel Business® will cover the Roundtable’s highlights in an upcoming issue. We will let you know when it is available.

CSI Global is the sponsor for the Hotel Business® Executive Roundtable.
