AAHOA’s HerOwnership Conference & Retreat was recently featured in USAE News, by Hotel Editor Jordan Bradley.
The Asian American Hotel Owner Association’s Female Director for the Eastern Division, Lina Patel, was surprised and delighted by the turnout for AAHOA’s inaugural HerOwnership Conference and Retreat, hosted in Cincinnati October 26-27 at the Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront. “Our expectation was that 100 [participants] would show up,” Patel, a panelist at the conference, told USAE. “300 showed up.” HerOwnership is a new initiative at AAHOA, created and launched earlier this year. The initiative was created to “bring everybody together under one roof” in order to collaborate and discover ways to elevate women in hospitality so that they may thrive in their current positions, and, if they choose, to become hotel owners, Patel said.
