The Lodging Conference 2019, the annual event’s 25th edition, featured a new look and a new home at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the wealth of information about the lodging industry that can be gained at the conference. Hotel Management Editor-in-Chief Stefani C. O’Connor and Senior Managing Editor Elaine Simon interviewed a number of hospitality experts at HM’s news desk during the conference to find out why they were in attendance and what they are looking forward to as the calendar flips to 2020.

In this video we feature Dilip Petigara, CEO of Access Point Financial.
