Overview

Due to COVID-19 we have decided to transition our two Hospitality Law Conferences into virtual conferences. 

Please contact Taylor Woljevach with any questions at cmo@hospitalitylawyer.com.

This two day virtual conference, held via the Zoom platform, is an intimate, informative and intense educational conference where attendees participate in expert-led interactive discussions that explore the best practices and benchmark current policies across the hotel and restaurant industries.

The latest cases, trends, challenges and solutions relevant to the hospitality industry are up for exploration in TED Talk Style Presentations and Deeper Dive Roundtables.

TED Talk Style Presentations: Modeled after the world-famous TED Talks format, these sessions feature several consecutive speakers, each delivering a concise, effective, eight-minute presentation to the entire audience. These TED Talk Style Presentations will be available to all registered attendees two weeks before the conference and are available to watch at the attendee’s pace.

Deeper Dive Roundtables: Deeper Dive Roundtables focused on the Ted Talk Style Presentation topics will occur live on October 7th and 8th. Each presenter will have 30 minutes dedicated to exploring their topic deeper and answering attendee questions via dedicated Zoom sessions.
