Executive Roundtables

HSMAI Executive Roundtables are networks of like-minded senior hotel leaders that meet face-to-face and virtually. They are a unique opportunity for executive-level peer groups to have meaningful dialogue in a confidential environment.

Each agenda is designed based on extensive input from invitees around the topics that are most important for them to discuss with their peers.

Attendance Eligibility

All Roundtables are by invitation only. Individuals are invited based on their specific role at a specific company (determined by company type and number of hotels in the company’s portfolio). Invitations are non-transferable.

Roundtables are hosted by HSMAI. While there is no cost to attend, all attendees are expected to be members of HSMAI.

Executive T.H.I.N.K.

HSMAI also produces Executive T.H.I.N.K. (Travel, Hospitality, Innovation, Networking and Knowledge)

While participants have valued the conversations with their peers at our Roundtable programs, many have requested that we create more opportunities for cross-functional conversations and networking. HSMAI Executive T.H.I.N.K. programs have been developed to do exactly that.
