The members of LIIC represent the acquisition and disposition control of more than $60  billion in lodging real estate. LIIC members comprise some of the hospitality industry`s most influential investors, lenders, corporate real estate executives, REITs, public hotel companies, brokers, and advisors.

For almost 20 years, LIIC has prepared an annual survey of it members to identify their top concerns and issues affecting hotel investment. This survey results in the “LIIC Top Ten” – a highly-regarded profile of investment sentiment and attitudes for the lodging industry for the forthcoming 12 months.

This year`s survey was compiled by LIIC`s co-chairman, Michael Cahill. Mr. Cahill is president and founder of HREC – Hospitality Real Estate Counselors, a leading national hotel and casino advisory and brokerage firm specializing in lodging property sales, debt refinancing, consulting, and litigation support.
