42nd Annual NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference On-site Nov. 11-12 EVENT CANCELLED - Replaced by Webinar Series Scheduled for the Week of November 9, 2020


As one of the premier conferences in the world, the Annual NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference is always a highly anticipated event that convenes thought leaders from across the US and around the globe.

While it has been a difficult decision to make, after careful consideration and to ensure the health and safety of conference attendees and panelists in light of the continuing restrictions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference's Executive Planning Committee has chosen to cancel the on-site event that was scheduled at the New York Marriott Marquis on November 11-12, 2020 and to replace it with an online webinar series that will occur during the week of November 9, 2020.

For information regarding refunds, please email: [email protected]


A series of online webinars, currently being planned by the Conference Committee, will take place during the week of November 9, 2020. Attendance will be free of charge to members of the hospitality and tourism industries, as well as to members of the press.

Similar to the highly successful "CEOs Check In" virtual panel discussion that the Committee produced and aired this past June (see below), which was moderated by Conference Chairman Jonathan M. Tisch, chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels & Co. and co-chairman of the Board of Loews Corporation, the November webinar series will bring the best of the world-renowned NYU Hospitality Conference to an even larger audience, and will do so at a time that is critical for members of the industry to gain the latest information on trends and forecasts from the best in the business. More details and link to register will follow.
