AAHOA’S NEXT ANNUAL conference and tradeshow, set for April 11 to 14 in Los Angeles, already has set a record for the number of booths sold. It will be the
largest conference in 34 years, AAHOA said.
The association has sold 81,900 square feet of exhibit space for the upcoming AAHOA Convention & Trade Show, exceeding the 77,500 square feet sold for the 2019
conference, which was previously the record holder. In addition, as of Feb. 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
“I’ve been in the exhibition business for a long time, and I’m so impressed to see the enthusiasm, excitement, and response from vendors who are looking to do
business with AAHOA Members,” said Dennis Smith, AAHOA vice president of business development. “Our team is thrilled to reach this historical milestone, with
the ultimate goal of connecting as many AAHOA Members as possible with the product and service providers who can help them make money, save money, protect their
investments, and better serve their guests.”
AAHOA’s 20,000 members spend $50 billion with suppliers attending the event each year.
“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,” said Nishant “Neal” Patel, AAHOA chairman. “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.”
