Canada’s most comprehensive lodging conference is coming to Vancouver!

For 14 years the Canadian Hotel Investment Conference has been the annual springtime gathering of the Canadian lodging industry. This year, the Western Canadian Hotel & Resort Investment Conference aims to provide a year-end perspective on both resort and urban lodging, with a western focus. This Conference is a vehicle for delegates to reflect on the various issues that impact the lodging industry and discuss future opportunities and trends through in-depth, interactive sessions that are uniquely Canadian.
 

Who Should Attend?

Whether you are involved in the development and/or operation of recreational/resort real estate or active in the urban hotel investment market, this conference is a must!
Independent and multi-property developers/operators, hotel franchisors and recreational amenity providers will benefit from interactive sessions and timely insights into investment activity and the potential within the Western Canadian market. This event will also provide a unique opportunity for lenders/investors, architects, designers, hospitality consultants, lawyers and investment advisors to gain better perspective on this rapidly evolving industry.
