The Lodging Conference is one of the leading hotel industry events in the world. Over the past 26 years, tens of thousands of high-powered hotel owners and executives from around the globe have participated. This event brings together the hotel industry's most influential owners, operators, presidents, CEOs, investors, and dealmakers to strategize about development, finance, franchising, management, construction, design, and operations.
With three days of continuous opportunities to network, gourmet food, leisure activities, a casual dress code and atmosphere, and a who's who of senior-level industry developers and executives in attendance, it's no surprise that our attendees say they make more contacts and initiate more deals at The Lodging Conference than at any other industry event. In 2021, TLC was the largest industry conference in the world with almost 2000 in attendance. Please Register Early. With the industry rising up, we expect another early sell-out. See you in Phoenix.
Listen to what previous attendees have to say:
The Lodging Conference is one of the events that I have always looked forward to. I have been here for more than 25 years now, pretty much since the inception of this conference. The best thing about this conference is networking in a relaxed environment and you do more deals in a relaxed environment and actually exchange ideas and the educational part of it is also absolutely phenomenal. Very well done – it continues to improve every year that I come here!
I enjoyed every minute of it. From the engaging discussions and presentations on industry trends and post-pandemic opportunities to moderating one of the General Sessions, Connecting with everyone in attendance at one of the many social events, on top of all the educational elements, there was never a dull moment.
The Lodging Conference is incredibly special because the relaxed environment that you have here is just something that everybody needs and this year in particular having the opportunity to see so many friend and colleagues that you may have not seen over the last couple of years has made it extra special. It really is one of the best conferences I have been to.
I come to the Lodging Conference and I’ve been coming for 21 years because it’s great. It’s one of the best opportunities to meet our owners and franchisees – that’s it in a nutshell.
It's such a beautiful setting, contained under one roof and all the active developers are in attendance.
The Lodging Conference is always a special place to hear about the trends and to meet the people shaping our industry. I look forward to going - but I especially value what I take away.
There are many conferences throughout the year, but we always find The Lodging Conference to be the most productive.
The relaxed atmosphere of the venue coupled with the decision-makers that always attend, make for great networking opportunities throughout the property during the three days that we are there.
This is such a great and unique conference; from the speakers, attendees, format, location and your staff. You truly have the 'deal' conference in our industry as I think more real work gets done in the casual atmosphere you have created at The Lodging Conference than any other event. I look forward to it all year, especially the open band party on the final knight where the industry gets to rock...cool to see so many in our industry enjoy their musical side.
The Lodging Conference is hands down the best hospitality conference to attend. exp hopes to be a sponsor of the conference for years to come!
The Lodging Conference offers the chance to connect in ways that no other investment conference does - an intimate setting and informal atmosphere in which personal connection and the exchange of ideas flourish. This will be my 24th year through all the ups and downs.
I can honestly say that attending The Lodging Conference for the past ten years has changed my life.
I've attended The Lodging Conference for many years as it provides a relaxed and comfortable setting to learn, network and get updates on the current state of the Hotel Industry.
The Lodging Conference is not only our favorite venue, but it is among the most productive conference for us. Interation with industry leaders and our clients is enormously valuable. I have attended this conference for more than 20 years and it keeps getting better each year.
Great panels, great venue - conductive to meetings, conversations and social time.
If you're a developer in the hotel business you need to be here. It's the best development conference in the industry.
It was a great setting to launch AVID Hotels.
We've been attending and sponsoring for 20+ years. It's been a very worthwhile investment for our firm.
The food and atmosphere are second to none. It's a must-attend event and a great place to get deals done.
I've attended more than twenty times and I've always done deals at The Lodging Conference. An outstanding event.
I find The Lodging Conference probably one of the most unique conferences out there. It’s really the environment and the casual atmosphere - here at The Lodging Conference you go outside and you start talking deals, you start talking business and people are more honest and open to discussing deals and opportunities and that’s what makes it different than any other conference. My favorite element of The Lodging Conference is the way it’s casual and because of that we get more business done here than most other conferences and this becomes one of the best conferences for us.
Year after year we are here at The Lodging Conference with a big contingent. It’s a show that from the moment we walk in is immediately connective in so many ways in terms of relationships, in terms of deals and in terms what our team accomplishes here. This show is all about relationships and the over 20 years of relationships that we have all developed at this show evolve every year. It’s a much more laid back and fun show than any other show in the industry today and it’s a very focused show in terms of people trying to make the most out of their time and get deals done and that’s why we’re here. It’s great to be a part of it.
I love The Lodging Conference and I’ve been over ten times. I keep coming back because great friends and a lot of good energy and this year it was as strong as ever, which is really a great representation of what a great franchise it has become. For me The Lodging Conference is a really unique mix of casual approach with a serious overtone in business and I just love that combination. It’s the way we try to run our business.
I really like The Lodging Conference because it is a relaxed atmosphere, you can do a tremendous amount of business, everybody you know is here and it’s a phenomenal opportunity to get together. The relaxed atmosphere makes it an easy place to do business.
It’s a great gathering of professionals in the hospitality industry in a casual atmosphere, with exchanging of information, learning from each other and it’s very productive. It’s an annual event we will never miss.

Congrats to you and the entire Conference team for putting this great, long overdue conference together where things started to feel “normal”. We had a very productive conference and are grateful for attending.
