WESTLAKE, Ohio –
From March 18th through the 20th, we will be at the Hunter Hotel Investment Conference in Atlanta at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Jeff Gerish, Chief Development Officer, Art Borowski, Chief Financial Officer, Ed Pavente, Chief Operating Officer, Lori Berhent, Vice President of Revenue Generation and Business Development, and Michele Janci, Regional Director of Revenue Generation, will be representing Emerald Hospitality Associates, Inc. at the conference. The goal of the conference is to use industry trends and emerging opportunities to give investors the information they seek while growing their respective businesses. This year’s Keynote Speaker is Cliff Sims, former senior communications aide to President Donald J. Trump along with a multitude of breakout sessions on topics including, economic expectations for 2020, dual banded hotels, and more.
Our team is excited to be both a vendor and sponsor of the Hunter Conference for the first time this year. We’re looking forward to connecting with industry leaders at our booth and throughout the conference sessions as we learn about forward-looking trends in our industry. As Emerald has grown in the last 20 years, we have added the resources and technical skills needed to take on new, exciting development, acquisition and third-party management projects, while continuing to keep a close relationship with our owners, investors and hotel teams. Our goal is to now enhance our current hotel base with new partnerships in asset management, meet with potential future investors and learn more about investment opportunities. While meeting with us at the conference, please make sure to inquire about our independent affiliate, the Nimbus Investment Fund.
We are honored that our Chief Financial Officer, Art Borowski, will be speaking on the Hotel Development breakout panel at 3:45p.m. on Thursday, March 19th. He will be joining Glenn Haussman from the No Vacancy Podcast, Eric Jacobs the Chief Development Officer of North America-Marriott Select Brands, Brian Waldman the Executive Vice President of Investments of Peachtree Hotel Group, and Ben Brunt the Principal & Executive Vice President of Noble Investment Group LLC.
With a purpose of connecting investors, owners, and bankers with the companies that provide the services they need, the Hunter Conference is the perfect opportunity for Emerald to network and grow as a company. Emerald will have Booth #104 at the Exhibit Hall which will allow us to network with potential investors, owners, asset managers, and bankers.
