NATIONAL REPORT—Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS) and ALIS Law will now be held July 26-28, 2021, at the JW Marriott/Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles L.A. LIVE. ALIS Law will he held July 25-26, 2021, at the Courtyard/Residence Inn Los Angeles L.A. LIVE.
“We believe that shifting the conferences from April to July will maintain the safety and well-being of our delegates as it hopefully will provide additional time for vaccines to be distributed and for the virus to be better contained,” said Jeff Higley, president, The BHN Group. “This would, in turn, provide governments with more reasons to allow live, in-person gatherings such as ALIS and ALIS Law to maximize the use of a venue’s space while still providing a safe, healthy environment.”
He continued, “This decision was not made lightly. We consulted with leaders of our industry, as well as ALIS and ALIS Law sponsors, and received overwhelming support to shift the dates to July. The prevailing sentiment is that the promising news on the development of vaccines and the efforts made by government officials to control the spread of the virus will allow us to gather more safely and in greater numbers by July 2021.”
Higley also said that the intention is to return to January in 2022 for ALIS and ALIS Law.
