Collectively, over 860 participants from about 500 companies attended the 4th Annual HMC events across the United States, Canada, and Mexico in 2015. Already held in several locations around the world, HMC Los Angeles will focus on building our community through networking, offering interactive presentations, and engaging conversations at roundtables with hotel owners, lenders, and investors. These exclusive gatherings, orchestrated by HVS offices, spotlight trends in hotel lending and provide current snapshots related to hotel valuation, transactions, cap rates, and operating trends in each market.
A panel of local market experts, including Andrew Holt, Senior Vice President of Eastdil Secured; Bobby Wiginton, Director of UBS; Kimo Bertram, Vice President Real Estate and Development, Hyatt Hotels Corporation; and Matthew D. Marquis, President of Pacifica Hotel Company will be sharing their valuable insights and expertise.
