Regular readers of this blog know that we take some time each year to attend various hospitality trade shows around the country.

Every year around this time, the team at InnStyle rolls up its sleeves and starts prepping for the annual AIHP conference. We are a charter founding member and allied partner of AIHP.
This year, we’ll be headed to Long Beach, CA, where the AIHP (Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals) will hold the InnSpire Conference and Knowledge Sharing Summit & Marketplace.
Scheduled for January 29 through February 1 aboard the Queen Mary, the retired ocean liner turned hotel and tourist destination. This year, the AIHP is working with Select Registry and the California Association of Boutique and Breakfast Inns to host the event.
InnStyle is heading west next month for the 2016 VRMA Conference in Arizona.
The VRMA – Vacation Rental Managers Association – gathers each year to discuss the state of the industry. This year’s conference is scheduled for Oct. 16-19 at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass in the city of Chandler, just outside Phoenix.
“With more than 50 educational sessions and a vendor showcase boasting more than 70 industry-leading vendors, the national conference dives deeper into the “why” of vacation rental management, providing in-depth insight on business strategy, industry trends and sales/marketing,” the VRMA says on its website.
The conference includes talks on issues such as reaching millennial travelers, working with realtors to market your properties and dealing with restrictive municipal regulations.
We think it’s a great opportunity. It gives our team a chance to learn more about the industry, and to share our products with vacation rental property owners and managers from all over the country.
With the new year just around the corner, are you ready to start it off on a high note?
All of us here at InnStyle are busy preparing to attend the PAII Innkeeping Conference & Trade Show, which will be held at the Hilton Riverside Hotel in New Orleans, La., from January 5 – 8, 2015.

Not only does the conference showcase current industry trends and best practices — it also gives you the opportunity to build new relationships with vendors and other innkeepers alike. Come join us in the Big Easy for special events, mixers, and a wide breadth of educational sessions from aspiring to master innkeepers.
