Meet the Money® National Hotel Finance & Investment Conference
May 4-6, 2015 in Los Angeles

The window of opportunity is open – choosing the right deals

LOS ANGELES–Meet the Money® 2015 will mark the 25th year that hotel owners, operators, developers, consultants, investors, brands, lenders and other capital providers convene in Los Angeles to explore opportunities for hotel development and deals.

“Industry fundamentals are strong, interest rates are low, debt and equity are flowing, and overseas investors are lining up to invest in hotels,” said Jim Butler, Chairman of JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group®. “The window of opportunity is wide open. The challenge now is to choose the right deals for you and your company.”

Meet the Money® 2015 will include presentations on how developers are using new financing sources, such as crowd funding and EB-5 financing, as part of the capital stack for new projects. Industry experts will share up-to-the minute information on valuation, buying, selling, repositioning, and financing hotels.

This year, Meet the Money® will offer a new Monday afternoon session—the Resort Development Workshop: Mixed Use and Shared Ownership. Hosted by Platinum Sponsor Interval International and the Global Hospitality Group®, the Resort Development Workshop will explore mixed-use and shared ownership with industry experts across a diverse mix of disciplines, focusing on the business models and opportunities for hoteliers, developers and investors.

“All indicators point to another banner year in the hospitality industry,” said Butler. “Making informed choices in buying, selling and building hotels can add millions of dollars in value to your deal. We want to help our clients and friends make the choices that are best for them.”
