Stay Boutique Live Announces Speaker Line-Up for June 5th New York Investment Event

Ian Schrager Still Believes in Boutique – Come and Hear Why

USA, Los Angeles, California. April 24, 2019

Stay Boutique Live, the Investment Edition Hospitality Conferences are some of the most efficient spaces to meet like-minded and collaborative individuals, however on-stage content is often the most overlooked aspect; an occurrence that Stay Boutique actively challenges through our careful curation of the boutique community's most established leaders.

Stay Boutique Live, the Investment Edition is no exception to our noteworthy reputation; join us on June 5, 2019 at The Times Center to gather insight from boutique's greatest minds, including a closing keynote interview with Boutique Hospitality legend Ian Schrager.

Jean-Luc Naret, CEO at La Réserve Hotels and Spas, will open the day with a keynote discussion, followed by a workshop hosted by Financial Gym Founder Shannon L McLay, insights on high-risk investment from Grace Bay Resorts' Co-Founder and CEO Mark Durliat, intimate interviews with Charles Khabbouth, Founder and CEO of Ink Entertainment, Richard Bosworth, General Partner and CEO of JC Hospitality Partners, among many other esteemed boutique hospitality and lifestyle's leading minds. Inclusivity as a top, we also welcome Nadira Lalji, Founder, Inhabit Hotels and Lucia Penrod, CEO, Nikki Beach Worldwide to discuss Progressive Investment - Feminism in Hospitality.

As boutique concepts grow in popularity (those that act as more than the typical "boutique hotel"), Stay Boutique addresses the importance of collaboration and multi-concept through inclusion of on-stage speakers with ties and/or parallels to the boutique hospitality community. At the Investment Edition, we welcome boutique concept Heyday's founders Adam Ross and Michael Pollack, boutique lingerie concept Lively's founder Michelle Corediero Grant, Shinola CEO Tom Lewand, philanthropic venture State Bags Co-Founders Jacqueline and Scot Tatleman, boutique meal delivery service Sakara Life founders Whitney Tingle and Danielle Dubois, and more to discuss boutique finance and the potential for exceptionally higher profit margins made available through collaboration and purpose.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
