• The total number of hotel rooms under construction is up 20%
• New York City currently has 55 new properties in the pipeline-tops in the US
• Cities such as Orlando, Chicago, Miami and Nashville round out the top 5 of new properties in development

Increasing travel and the dearth of opportunity in other real estate sectors has led to a boom of hotel construction that seems to have no stopping until recently.

As financing has taken a turn and the perception of some markets is too many hotels are coming on line it is even more important for those considering or starting to build hotels get together, compare notes and network. With this in mind IMN has developed its Inaugural Hotel Construction & Development Forum, February 26-27 in New York City.

IMN’s New Hotel Development conference is the only place where you will find a whole event dedicated to hotel construction and only hotel construction.

Construction financiers, feasibility analysts, development/construction managers, architects and senior hotel executives who have projects under construction or are considering taking the plunge… This is the one conference you must attend!
