Indian-American hotel owners announce this year’s trade show
The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), which describes itself as the the largest hotel owners association in the world with nearly 20,000 members, announced it will be holding the largest Trade Show in the organization’s history.
The organization whose membership is overwhelmingly Indian-American, announced Feb. 8, 2023, that it has already secured a record level of booth sales for the Trade Show at AAHOACON23, April 11-14, 2023, a press release said.
The 2019 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show, which AAHOA describes as its biggest show to date, celebrated the association’s 30-year anniversary, and covered a total of 77,500 square feet of exhibit space.
This year, with many weeks remaining for industry partners to secure space, AAHOACON23 already sits at 81,900 square feet of sold exhibit space, the organizers said. In addition, as of February 8, AAHOA has nearly doubled the registration total of Lifetime Members compared to AAHOACON22, and the organization is still on pace to exceed 2019 registration totals of more than 8,000 attendees, with 60+ days still to go until AAHOACON23, the press release said.
“I always look forward to the industry’s Super Bowl event, and this year, as I conclude my term as AAHOA Chairman, I’m proud of the work our association has done to prepare for the event and connect even more vendors directly with decision makers,” AAHOA Chairman Nishant (Neal) Patel, is quoted saying in the press release. “AAHOA Members spend billions of dollars each year with suppliers, and AAHOA plays an important role in connecting hoteliers directly with those who can help them run a better, more profitable, and more efficient business – AAHOACON is where deals are made,” Patel added.
The Convention will also feature 14 educational sessions, three General Sessions, and three nights of entertainment and networking. As per tradition, on the second day, AAHOACON23 will also feature speeches and debates from the candidates running for the AAHOA Board of Directors.
