JMBM’s Meet the Money® is the Gateway to Hotel Finance, connecting consumers and providers of debt and equity capital for hotel deals. The 19th annual conference theme for 2009 was “Out of the Panic and into Unprecedented Opportunities.” “The current economic crisis is creating unprecedented challenges and opportunities for hoteliers, resulting in the greatest repositioning of wealth since the 1930s,” said conference host Jim Butler, author of www.HotelLawBlog.com and chairman of the Global Hospitality Group®. Meet the Money® 2009 looked to valuable lessons from the past, but it also focused on the ‘defining differences’ that create unique challenges and ‘opportunities of a lifetime’ this time around.
Attendees were divided among two groups–at one end of the spectrum were those asking, ‘how do I survive or exit and preserve some of my capital?’ while the other end focused on, ‘who do I team up with and how do I find the opportunities created by this unprecedented economic situation?’
This conference featured nearly 100 industry leader speakers, in several highly focused presentations and panels, discussing topics such as state of the industry, who has the financing now, selling distressed assets, special servicers, vacation ownership workouts, taking REITS private, profiting in troubled times, and repositioning mixed-use projects. Experts will give special emphasis to and insights about fast-emerging trends, contract terms, capital sources, and problematic issues in hotel finance.
