AAHOA roundtable discusses influencing changes throughout the U.S.

AAHOA roundtable

For 27 years, the Asian American Hotel Owners Association has worked with its members to counter discrimination and other obstacles as they established themselves in the hospitality industry. Now, with an excess of 15,000 members who own more than 20,000 properties (40 percent of all the hotels in the U.S.), the organization has become a leader in the hospitality sector.

HOTEL MANAGEMENT met with eight hoteliers at AAHOA's annual convention in Atlanta to discuss the challenges facing today's hotel operators, including rising wages, threats to the franchise model and increasing regulations. These operators talked not only about the ways their hotels are affected by the changing world, but methods to counter these changes.

Pull up a seat at the table and see what hoteliers are dealing with, and what you can do about it.
