Meet the Money® 2013 online registration ends Friday. Don’t miss this year’s exciting edition of the hotel industry’s finance conference.

01 May 2013

Meet the Money® 2013 is next week! Online registration ends this Friday, May 3, 2013 at 5 pm.

It is hard to believe but our 23rd annual Meet the Money® conference is less than a week away — May 6 to 8, 2013 at the Sheraton LAX.

We have an exciting program with the top providers and consumers of debt, equity and other pieces of the capital stack. We also have top industry leaders speaking and attending, plenty of opportunities for networking and deal making, and the best conference food and snacks in the industry.

Hot topics include all the latest on WHO is providing hotel financing and HOW the deals are being done — from small deals to big deals. Presenters are all active in providing capital or finding the best sources of it.

In addition to all the latest on hotel debt and equity, there will be some great panels on:

  • State of the Hotel Industry — industry fundamentals, capital markets,
    financing and market values, cap rates, transaction data and trends,
    state of the economy

    PKF Consulting
    Jones Lang LaSalle
    Atlas Hospitality
    Richard Green, USC Lusk Center

  • Development: What’s Hot — What’s Not
    Where’s the money going for development?
  • EB-5 Update: Financing for New Construction
    Why do the EB-5 apps double each year?
  • Why the ADA matters to you.
    Comply now or pay later
  • CEO Panel: New Strategies for a New Economy
    Are you at the table or on it?
  • Hotel Retail-Mixed-use
    Why are people adding hotels to shopping centers?
  • State of the CMBS Markets
  • Workouts/Receiverships/Takeovers
    Strategies for distressed hotels
  • Maximizing Return & Value
    Branded vs. Independent Operators

And much more!

Although this will mark the 23rd time I have hosted Meet the Money®, I always look forward to meeting new people, seeing old friends, helping facilitate a new deal and learning something new. I hope you will join me. And if this is your first time attending, please come up and introduce yourself!

There is still time to register online for two more days, and then you will be able to register at the door, but your name won’t be on the delegate list.
