The Hospitality Law Conference

Intensive Education. Exceptional Networking. It’s Not Just for Lawyers.

From development deals to management agreements, from food and beverage liability to labor and employment, and from claims management to anti-trust issues, the latest cases, trends and challenges in compliance, finance, law, risk, safety, and security are up for exploration at the 15th Annual Hospitality Law Conference, April 24-26, 2017

The Owner Management Summit, co-located with The Hospitality Law Conference – 2017, intersects legal, finance and technology and includes sessions on: who owns the data, who is responsible for the data, development and unwinding management contracts.

The Hospitality Insurance and Loss Prevention Summit, co-located with the Hospitality Law Conference, includes sessions on risk management, the top claims in 2016, and coverages for cyber & data breaches.

Hotel and Restaurant Corporate Counsel have several opportunities to meet with their peers in facilitated conversations to explore common challenges, solutions and law department management.

Also featured during The Hospitality Law Conference – 2017, are break-out sessions and roundtables in Food & Beverage, Lodging, and Human Resources & Labor Relations.

Cities: Seattle (February 22, 2017) New York, Chicago, Houston, and London (Additional Dates TBD)

Brought to you by The BTN Group (publishers of Business Travel News and Travel Procurement) and HospitalityLawyer.com, this five-city one-day conference series is focused on educating corporate travel buyers, procurement professionals, human resources, legal and risk professionals and IT on meeting legal obligations and executing safe and secure travel.

Managing risk is just as important as managing cost and it’s increasingly important to anyone who manages travel. When people hear “travel risk management,” their thoughts tend to go to earthquakes, volcanoes and riots. And yet, those are just the extreme incidents that make the news. Travel management involves dealing with risk every day in many less public situations – risk that can endanger your company and your travelers and potentially hurt your reputation. So the better you plan for and manage risk, the better off you are.

The Global Travel Risk Management Summit series is unique in that it departs from the traditional conference format and challenges participants to engage scenarios involving business travel risk management. The day will be filled with intensive education via forums, roundtables, and real-world immersion sessions (pitting crisis management teams against travel disruptions such as: weather disasters, civil unrest, contagious disease outbreaks, hotel lockdown and active shooter scenarios). Attendees will learn about best practices, benchmark current policies across industries, view the latest safety and security products and services available, participate in two immersive, real-world scenarios, and discover the results of the most recent research being conducted around the world.

The convergence of all disciplines is crucial when a crisis occurs, which is why all corporate executives (corporate travel buyers, procurement professionals, human resources, legal and risk professionals) who are directly or indirectly responsible for the legality, safety or security of mobile people, data or property, should attend. Our goal is to have 65+ corporate travel buyers, procurement professionals, human resources, legal and risk professionals in attendance plus representatives from our co-sponsors at each event.
