“ILES 2017 will not only be bigger and better than ever before, but our educational sessions will tackle some of the leading issues and business practices impacting today’s independent hoteliers,” said Pamela Barnhill, founder of ILES and president and chief operating officer of IBC. “We polled past attendees to see what topics are of the most interest to them and which would provide them with the best insight for improving operations going forward. The program we put together is both interactive and informative, with high-profile moderators setting the tone and directing the conversations for engaging commentary and discussions.”
Here is a sneak peek of some of the sessions coming to ILES 2017:
“Bringing ILES to Las Vegas is especially exciting because it gives us the opportunity to leverage the expertise of independent hoteliers in the nation’s leading gaming destination and network with operators who have not previously attended this growing event,” Barnhill said. “In addition to the conference, for the first time Hotel Interactive will conduct BITAC Independent. Traditionally, BITAC events have been exceptionally successful when in Las Vegas. By tying BITAC Independent with ILES, we providing a marketplace like no other that hoteliers are sure to enjoy.”
