USA, Palm Springs, California. June 17, 2019

The second annual hot springs industry conference in the United States, the Hot Springs Connection, will take place on November 4-8, 2019 in Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, California. Designed for hot springs owners, operators, general managers, facilities directors and marketing professionals, the conference will continue to represent a national effort for commercial geothermal pools, spas and resorts.

The Hot Springs Connection is returning after a successful first year in Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 2018. "The amount of collaboration was inspiring," Scott Whitaker, Director of Operations at Glen Ivy Hot Springs, said. "I believe it got us all reenergized to continue to push for excellence in our field."

The conference is divided into two series. The first, in Palm Springs (Nov. 4-6), will have presentations, seminars, workshops, trade exchange and networking opportunities with colleagues from across the U.S. The second will continue in Desert Hot Springs (Nov. 6-8), including field trips and behind-the-scenes tours at local spas, resorts and historical sites.

This event is organized by Vicky Nash, CEO of tourism communications and marketing firm Resort Trends, Inc. Resort Trends has represented clients throughout the hospitality industry, with over 24 years of work with hot springs in Colorado. Nash also helped create the Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop, an award-winning initiative, and planned the inaugural Hot Springs Connection in 2018.

"After a very successful first year, the Hot Springs Connection is returning with even more to offer representatives within the hot springs industry," Nash said.

Discounted registration rates are available until July 31, 2019, starting at $589 for hot springs operators. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available, ranging from trade show booths, presentation opportunities and inclusion in promotional items for the Hot Springs Connection.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
