11th Annual Georgetown Law Hotel & Lodging Legal Summit

It’s Like Rotating an Occupied Building, Only the Guests Don’t Notice
10.27.2023 | 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

Barring unforeseen developments, this year’s Hotel & Lodging Legal Summit will be the first to take place at a time when the pandemic seems well behind us. In most segments, occupancy and rates have recovered to pre-pandemic levels. Nevertheless, the industry remains affected by inflation and rising interest rates extending from governments’ fiscal responses to the pandemic, as well as changes to business travel and workplace locations that may be permanent. Meanwhile, the industry continues to face new iterations of now-familiar challenges (e.g., preventing and responding to data breaches and a return of industry consolidation) while confronting new ones (e.g., the recent explosion of artificial intelligence and increased long-term occupancy of hotels). 

As the hotel and lodging industry continues its post-pandemic phase, join professionals from throughout North America and abroad at the world’s leading continuing legal education and networking conference for lawyers who serve this industry, to discuss the most pressing legal issues challenging the industry today.


10:15 AM - It’s Like Rotating an Occupied Building, Only the Guests Don’t Notice

Within a few years, a hotel may change owners, management companies, financing and brands. Other than the last of these, most guests and residents of the hotel’s community will never notice these changes, even though they are tectonic to the hotel’s business. For each of these changes, there is a checklist of bases that must be covered by attorneys involved in the underlying transaction. Learn from a panel of industry experts as they discuss each of these bases.
