Hunter Hotel Investment Conference 2019

Brand leadership expert and author Denise Lee Yohn will be the opening speaker at the 31st Hunter Hotel Investment Conference coming March 20-22, 2019 to the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta. Hunter chose Denise to spark conversation among attendees about brand-building - both personal and corporate. Brand Leadership - How to Build a Rock Star Brand will draw from case studies, analyses and interviews with brand leaders to show you how to achieve the kind of brand leadership that everyone - from customers to employees to investors - wants a piece of.


"Competition in the hospitality industry has been escalating - from newer entrants such as Airbnb, existing companies introducing new offerings, and aggregators and discounters. Plus, customers' expectations have elevated - the best companies have been
trained to get what they want, where, when, and how they want it. A strong brand is the best way to address these challenges." 

Lee Hunter, Conference Chair and COO, Hunter Hotel Advisors, when asked about this announcement: "We are thrilled that Denise is joining us for the 31st Hunter Hotel Investment Conference. Our event aims to provide thought-provoking, entertaining speakers
who give our attendees fresh views on the hotel investment landscape. Denise will share her brand-building and leadership insight and inspire us all to become rock stars of the hospitality investment community."

The session takes place on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, after opening remarks. Registration for the conference can be completed online now at . For the full conference schedule, including details on the breakout
