AH&LA reveals new logo

The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) adopted a new graphic look.

The new logo is designed to reflect a new membership and advocacy model that was launched by AH&LA in January 2014. This is the fourth time that a new logo has been created to represent evolution in the association’s over 100-year history. 

This new graphic identity will appear in all future materials, collateral and media.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Created in conjunction with New York-based design and marketing firm, Infinia, the group conducted one-on-one interviews with a range of members. Hoteliers indicated they take pride in the industry and AH&LA has a long tradition of representing hoteliers; the new membership model is creating greater expectations among members; a unified voice will help express the industry's strength; and the industry wants visible alignment and engagement.  

The identity is rooted in a new brand manifesto that serves as an overview and a communications platform for the association’s new purpose; and introduces the new voice, and tagline, Advocate – Communicate – Educate. 

“Working in close coordination with our officers and the board of directors, we created a new and forward-looking identity that reflects the future of AH&LA,” said AH&LA president/CEO Katherine Lugar.  “Our new logo is dynamic, fresh and conveys the unity and shared purpose of the full scope of the lodging sector.”
