BLLA Assembles Lineup of Experts for an Outlook on the Future of Boutique Hotels

For the First Time in 11 Years, the Largest and Most Influential Lineup of Experts Present Two Conferences on the Same Day

USA, Los Angeles, California. August 27, 2020

The Boutique Lifestyle Leaders Association ( BLLA ) is thrilled to announce Ian Schrager returns to the Boutique Hotel Investment Conference on September 17, joining an impressive global roster of leaders in the hospitality space. This all-day digital event unites the global boutique and luxury hospitality industry together to connect via two tracks (Investment and Leadership), a full half-day Bootcamp the following day, and extracurricular activities to round out the day's extraordinary experiences.

Many of these experts have survived the downturns of the late 1980's market crash, the 2008 to 2010 recession and now, the 2020 pandemic crisis. Bringing them together supports the strong possibilities for the independent and boutique sectors as they share their wisdom and experience toward a hopeful outlook for the future of this industry.

The Agenda kicks off with morning activities, followed by over 50 sessions in two distinctive tracks to follow (which will be available for up to 48 hours); Mentorship Circles (each for 25 participants, first-come, first-served); Keynotes and interviews; virtual speed-dating through a new tool and other extra-curricular activities such as Happy Hour and more.

Each track (Investment and Leadership) begins with Keynotes from iconic organizations such as the U.S. Travel Association, globally renowned retail and luxury boutique hotel brand Fauchon, industry research from such companies as STR and Horwath Htl, CEOs from boutique brands such as Virgin Hotels, Dream Hotels, SH Hotels, SBE Hospitality Group, Rosewood Hotels, Standard Hotels, Proper Hotels, Life House Hotels and many more. The 2020 Boutique Lifestyle Award Winners will also be announced.

On September 18, the day after the main conference, Boutique Boot Camp will cover several key topics, from Communication to Digital Marketing to Partnerships with Tourism Offices, virtual speed-dating and more. Interested Exhibitors and Sponsors may contact BLLA directly at info@blla.org or +1-818-264-4810. To register to attend the conference, follow this link.

Sales & Marketing: Playing the Long Game

During an economic downturn, it is tempting to slash marketing budgets to make up for lost revenue. But smart hoteliers play the long game, knowing that companies who stay engaged with their customers will be the first to benefit from a rebound. Therefore, now is the time to renew and revamp sales and marketing strategies in order to be ready for what lies ahead. For example, this is a perfect time to refresh website content, social media and SEO.  The same for hotel blogs where content can be updated to give customers inspirational ideas as they begin to travel and meet again. Multimedia assets should also be revised with new photo/video shoots that provide accurate information about how setups, room configurations, and onsite offerings have changed to accommodate safer meetings and social distancing. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting in anticipation of a recovery in 2021.
