Fourth Annual MLIS

The Midwest Lodging Investors Summit from July 17-19 was a watershed event in the hotel business. It was the first industry-wide conference since 2007 in which the prevailing sentiment was overwhelmingly one of optimism. Not wishful thinking; not a wing and prayer; but honest and fact-based belief the worst of the industry’s bad times are behind us and plentiful opportunities are ahead for buyers, sellers, operators and even developers. Lodging Hospitality, in association with HVS Hotel Management, sponsors MLIS, which was held this year at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago. The School of Hospitality Business at Michigan State University is the Summit academic partner. Check out these images and stories for all the highlights.
