Meet Seasoned Innkeepers
Veteran innkeepers will share their insights and help you learn from their experiences. Hear their stories about running different types of inns—large and small, urban and rural, upscale and down-home— and how they manage daily operations, market their inns, and find the time to balance their business and personal lives.

Talk with Industry Professionals
Your realtor, accountant and banker will all be important allies along your path. The Innkeeping as a Profession workshop will cover how to finance and purchase an inn, the laws and regulations that may pertain to your location, and how to get your dream headed in the right direction.

Do All Your Research in One Place
We do all the legwork and bring you the expert sources on the thriving B&B industry: the innkeepers and the industry professionals who support them. Why settle for one opinion when you can hear several. Attendees also have access to our marketplace with the industry’s leading suppliers of reservations systems, amenities, linens, insurance and more.
