Live event Set for October 5, 2021 in Anaheim, CA
ORANGE COUNTY, CA – 3.16.21 — The virtual component of the 5th Annual California Lodging Investment Conference [CLIC] was successfully held March 4th, 2021, with the live and in person edition coming October 5, 2021, to the newly opened jewel of the Anaheim Resort Area, the JW Marriott Anaheim Resort.
The virtual event featured two major hotel industry panels as well as a keynote speech on the California new hotel construction pipeline delivered by Bruce Ford of Lodging Econometrics. Additionally, eight major hotel companies and many other exhibitors took part as sponsors for the event.
“While we were hoping to host the event live in person, we decided to create this extra value virtual component for our attendees and our sponsors in anticipation of our rescheduled event in October,” said [CLIC] founder Craig Sullivan. “Fortunately, the online experience was sold out and we look forward to meeting in person this fall.”
Panels included Hotel Investment in a COVID-19 World, moderated by No Vacancy News’ Glenn Haussman, and included Jim Butler, JMBM; Jenny Redlin, Partner ESI; Luigi Major, HVS, Biran Patel, AAHOA; Kevin Lipson Real Insight Market Place; Bijal Patel, CHLA; and Keegan Bisch, Stonehill.
