ALIS: Going up? You bet we are, say delegates
The tagline at this year's Americas Lodging Investment Summit here at L.A. Live is "Going Up?" Printer deadlines and other such mundane logistical tasks forced organizers to append the question mark. But had they chosen the tagline closer to show time, that question mark would have been replaced with a resounding exclamation mark. Such has been the feeling at this year's ALIS, which has attracted the second-highest number of attendees since the record year of 2008. At the opening session, delegates were serenaded by a local Los Angeles choir belting out a gospel rendition of "Happy Days are Here Again."
