Bob Hunter of Hunter Hotel Advisors created the Hunter Hotel Investment Conference (HUNTER) more than 30 years ago. Back then, hospitality conferences catered solely to major industry players, little attention paid to emerging entrepreneurs. Bob dreamt of a conference where all could learn, connect, and do business in a welcoming environment. Through a partnership with the Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality at Georgia State University, a new hospitality conference was born.

Bob's hometown of Atlanta, hosted the first HUNTER conference in 1989. HUNTER has since grown into the premier hospitality conference where relationships and deals are made. HUNTER welcomes anyone involved in the financing, management, and development of hotels — franchisors/franchisees, owners, management companies, lenders, consultants, designers, lawyers.
