Just wanted to drop a quick line and say thank you for another amazing experience at the CLIC conference this year. I appreciate all that you do to make the event a huge success.

If you ever have a need for a guest spot on your podcast I would still love to be a part of it. Thanks for your consideration and talk to you soon!

J. Peter Agnoletti – Founder – Lead Advisor

I applaud you on making this a worthwhile conference to attend. We know how challenging it is to make a conference work well, and you were an excellent host. You had a nice group of local and not-so-local attendees who could reconnect, connect and network and discuss the latest concerns of the day.

Thank you very much for inviting us!

[CLIC] has been the single most beneficial conference I’ve attended within the hospitality industry. For three years straight, I’ve been the first to register because of it’s format, networking potential and value. The experts at [CLIC] are focused, current, relevant and interesting. Very much looking forward to [CLIC] 5!

Everything was Great – Well Done, Craig. Have one every 6 months. One Day Conference that is really focused on getting the most amount of industry information out to everyone in a very expeditious way by some great industry experts.

Most informative conference I have been to in California!
Sonny Patel & Hema Patel – Greenleaf Boutique Collection.
As an attendee and exhibitor since the very first CLIC conference I found CLIC to be one of the most enjoyable and informative of the many conferences I attend every year. It has everything I look for in a hospitality related event in a single day. CLIC’s support of various charities from the very beginning, including the California Lodging Industry Association (CLIA) Scholarship Fund, shows the exemplary generosity of Craig Sullivan, CLIC’s founder.
David Bowman – Executive Vice President of NewGen Advisory
I liked that it was all done in one day.
Janet Van Stsdale – JVA Art Group
Loved intimate setting. Keep it small and affordable, and focused.

Amazing conference. Craig & his team do a remarkable job of bringing the California Hotel Industry under one room for one day!
Dev Patel – Kamla Hotels
I look forward to attending next year and will recommend it to others in our industry. I’ll bet the attendance will grow by another 25%!
Tom Bergerson – Architects Orange

Just a shout out to my long-time good friend Craig Sullivan, who started California Lodging Investment Conference 4 years ago. He’s steered [CLIC] to be the California focused hotel conference to attend. Active in hospitality for over 25 years, Craig’s a respected friend to owners, operators, and the design community.

Going for another 25!!!!!! Cheers!!!
