SHA a sponsor of second annual Independent Lodging Congress 

SHA is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Independent Lodging Congress, September 29-30, 2014, at the Rittenhouse in Philadelphia. The ILC brings together management from hotels that are not part of large national or international chains to explore the unique challenges specific to their sector of the hospitality industry.

Several SHA alumni are featured speakers, as is Jan deRoos, HVS Professor of Hotel Finance and Real Estate, who said "I am excited to be part of the second annual ILC; the Congress has become one of the 'go-to' investment conferences in the hotel industry. Hospitality's creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit live in independent and lifestyle lodging, enriching the industry for all of us." The event organizers also count alumni among their ranks. Read More
