AAHOA announces new dates for 2021 convention

The 2021 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show is being rescheduled to Aug. 3-6. It will still be held in Texas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas.

“AAHOA prides itself on delivering America’s hoteliers, vendors and partners the best convention and trade show in the hospitality industry,” said AAHOA President and CEO Cecil Staton. “With the end of the pandemic in sight, it is our goal that attendees to the 2021 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show be able to gather safely as we continue on the road to recovery and celebrate the resiliency of our industry. Therefore, we are rescheduling our Convention & Trade Show for Aug. 3-6, 2021.”

AAHOA is tracking the vaccine rollout closely and working with public health officials in Dallas as well as VisitDallas to ensure the safety and success of this event. VisitDallas announced an initiative to lead the nation by becoming the first destination to receive Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR accreditation designating Dallas hotels, the convention center and selected city venues as sanitary and safe.

“We are confident that rescheduling the convention is the right decision for our members, industry partners and our association so that people can travel and gather safely in Dallas. I look forward to seeing all our friends in the hospitality industry Dallas this August,” Staton said.

Earlier this month, the hybrid 2021 Hunter Hotel Investment Conference, which was scheduled for March, was postponed to the second week of May.
