See how JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® can help you.

We’re excited to announce that Meet the Money®, the national hotel finance and investment conference, is back on May 1-3, 2023, for its 30th year! Join us for three days of deal-making, networking, and high-level presentations at the Hyatt Regency LAX in Los Angeles, California.

Meet the Money is the Goldilocks of hospitality industry conferences – big enough to attract the executives and leaders you want to meet with, and small enough to create a friendly and approachable environment for one-on-one networking between speakers, sponsors and attendees.

Our goal at Meet the Money is to connect you with the people you want to do business with, whether you’re a hotel owner, developer, investor, advisor, brand, lender, or other capital source. We gather hotel industry thought-leaders to provide you with the insights, analysis, and forecasts that will help you plan for success. Our sponsors, speakers and attendees are some of the best-known names in the industry; will you seize the opportunity to see where these connections can take you?


Registration is now open! You can snag your spot at Meet the Money here.

You can also join our mailing list to get updates on our program, speakers, and accomodations.
