Hotel Lawyers at The Lodging Conference 2017: EB-5, Mixed-Use Development and Deal Making

17 September 2017

EB-5, Mixed-Use Development and Deal Making: See you at the 2017 Lodging Conference

The Lodging Conference is taking place at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, October 30-November 2, 2017, and hotel lawyers from JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® will be there to visit our friends in the hospitality industry, share our knowledge, learn from the experts (and do some deals!).

At the conference, I will moderate the panel,  Navigating the EB-5 Landscape taking place at 4:00 pm on October 31st. Funding obtained through the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa program continues to play a vital role in the capital stack for new hotel development and we will provide up-to-the-minute information on the status of the program, as well as share some great success stories. To get up to speed on what’s happening with EB-5, check out my recent blogs.

Also from our team, JMBM Global Hospitality Group’s  Vice-Chair Guy Maisnik will speak on the panel Structuring Mixed-Use Development on November 1st at 11:30 am. Guy has represented developers and owners of hotel mixed-use properties for decades, and he will share his experience in financing, management agreements, and other critical issues.

Senior members of the Global Hospitality Group® Bob Braun and David Sudeck will also be in attendance and they are both highly knowledgeable in areas such as hotel management agreements, technology agreements and cybersecurity issues, ADA compliance and defense, and the purchase and sale of hotel properties.

If you are an owner or developer of hotel properties and you plan to attend The Lodging Conference, we hope you will look for us.  If you are an old friend, it will be great to see you.  If we have not met before, it will be a pleasure to make your acquaintance.
