The Collins College of Hospitality Management with CBRE Hotels and the Embassy Suites LAX North Hotel
Monday, October 29, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM (PDT)
Stepping on uneven ground
With the upcoming election, an uneven “recovery”, economic crisis in Europe and other bumps in the road, the economy remains uncertain and unpredictable. Just when it seems to be reaching stability, it lurches and heads in a different direction - or many directions at the same time! The travel industry has been hailed as one of the bright spots in this economic landscape. Therefore, where is the travel industry now, and what is expected in 2013?
Please join us at the 24th Annual Southern California Visitor Industry Outlook Conference and hear noted experts, representing a range of travel sectors, offer their best assessment of the economic situation and how it may affect your business.
All attendees receive a copy of PKF Consulting's 2013 Southern California Lodging Forecast, valued at $250. Valet Parking is complimentary. A networking lunch will follow the conference, and attendees will enjoy a presentation by Ted Tanner, Executive Vice President of AEG, discussing downtown Los Angeles.
Attendees may reserve a room at the Omni Hotel for a discounted rate of $189 per night.
