JMBM’s 24th annual hotel conference
Meet the Money® 2014, JMBM’s national hotel and investment conference, has just wrapped up its 24th edition in Los Angeles, California. 102 speakers and approximately 380 conference delegates gathered at the conference to make connections and deals, get the latest industry updates, find financing for hotel deals, and network with the industry’s leaders.
Breakout year for hotel development and deals
The theme for this year’s conference was well-chosen — “2014: Breakout Year for Hotel Development and Deals.” The atmosphere was buzzing with excitement and connections. Several speakers expressed the view that the current cycle may be most similar him to the one which started in 1991 where everything continued to improve for 10 years. That would give us a number of years of continued growth, profitability, and improving fundamentals.
We will share greater insight on some of the information provided at the conference in the coming days, but we want to let all our readers know that the conference presentations are already posted from Meet the Money® 2014.
