Events & Education

AAHOA hosts over 170 events and education opportunities across the United States each year. Whether you are a hotelier or a vendor, our events offer many opportunities for you to make money, save money and protect your investments.


  • The AAHOA Annual Convention & Trade Show is the association's biggest event of the year. With more than 6,000 attendees per year, it is the largest convention and trade show in the industry.

  • Attending a regional meeting is one of the easiest ways to get involved and stay connected. Or join us for a town hall meeting, where we discuss industry issues at a local level. 

  • AAHOA hosts brand alliance meetings at brand conferences throughout the year, giving hotel owners the opportunity to hear from AAHOA officers and the brand’s executive leadership about the partnership between the two and what AAHOA is doing for its members.

  • The AAHOA Certificate in Hotel OwnershipTM (CHO) is an online educational course designed to provide education on major topics like leadership, accounting, sales & marketing, front office operations, revenue management, financing, human resources, technology, legal issues, and more.

  • Bi-annually, AAHOA hotel owners meet with congressional members and their staff to introduce them to the important issues facing the hospitality industry during AAHOA’s national advocacy conferences.
