Another year, another successful AAHOA Convention!
Last week, the HF team traveled to Baltimore, Maryland to attend the highly-anticipated annual AAHOA Convention. The entire team was thrilled about meeting both old and new colleagues at the event. We had great conversations with everyone, as well as had a blast at the block party! It was a fantastic opportunity for us to catch up with everyone in our network.
During the three days at AAHOACON, I was blown away by the people I met and the insightful conversations I had with industry leaders and hotel owners. I was curious and extremely excited to learn about new industry trends and innovative techs that are helping to elevate the hospitality industry. I’m so proud that HF is able to be a part of this process and show our greatest support!
To recap, here are a few things I would like to highlight:
We had a great demo area (see pics above) to showcase how renovation projects could be done more efficiently via our digital portal. Our exclusive AAHOA member offer was well received, and we’re looking forward to executing the projects moving forward.
The block party was a lot of fun! It’s a really great way to connect with people in a much more casual setting and enjoy the entertainment and food and beverages provided by the association. Thanks to the organizers and all the sponsors for making this possible each year.
It is hard to believe that so much was packed into just a few days. Aside from the trade show and the networking events, there were important sessions covering everything from data, marketing, trafficking and the law, hiring and retaining talent, to low-cost tech options to improve operational efficiency. Two sessions that I always like to see included are the Young Professional Hoteliers session, along with the Women Hoteliers session and the luncheon.
I’d also like to extend congratulations to the newest board members…
On behalf of the Hotel Furniture team, I’d like to thank the organizers and members of AAHOA for this wonderful opportunity to meet with industry leaders and professionals at such a large-scale convention.
And a huge thank you to my wonderful HF team! Everyone worked hard in the last few weeks on making sure that things were planned and carried out smoothly during the event.
We will be attending more events in the coming months, so hopefully, I’ll be able to see you all again soon!
