This Week's BLLA Commentary

First-ever Boutique Hospitality Education!

I would be remiss if I did not mention the amazing list of leaders who will grace our stage in less than 3 weeks at our annual Leadership Symposium at UCLA’s Luskin Conference Center. Each has given their full attention during our calls and email reviews of their panel discussions and interviews and BLLA is grateful for their time and their focus to the smallest details to help make this the best symposium yet.

Add to that the extracurricular activities the event is offering and you have the formula for an amazing experience for all participants. To briefly mention them:

  • Several sessions of extreme networking, allowing attendees to meet many others in a short amount of time
  • Free headshots being offered by JTANL; sign-ups on-site. Everyone needs a new headshot, right?
  • Buses transporting everyone on the first night to the famous United Talent Agency for cocktails, heavy appetizers and a special film showing. Sponsored by Rottet Studio who designed the space.
  • Buses transporting everyone over to the beautiful and famous Beverly Hills Hotel for a fabulous Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony. See the Winners & Finalists of the 2016 Boutique & Lifestyle Hospitality Awards in the various categories

The delectable menu for the evening:

  • Cocktail Hour Appetizers: Mini Lobster Taco, Avocado, Corn and Black Bean Salsa, Grilled Rare Filet Mignon - Horseradish Cream, Asparagus, Poached Potato, Crème Fraiche, Black Caviar, Chicken Pad Thai Spring Roll, Peanut Sauce, Shrimp Tempura, Togarashi, Aioli
  • SALAD - Pomegranate and Citrus Salad, Watercress and Bibb Lettuce, Shaved Fennel, Grilled Asparagus, White Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Polo Lounge Bread Basket – yummy freshly made selection of breads
  • DUET ENTRÉE - Napa Cabernet Marinated Short Rib & Salmon, Truffle Potato Gratin, Heirloom Carrots, Baby Kale, Pickled Pearl Onions, Jumbo, Asparagus, (Vegetarian: Celery Root Ravioli, Porcini Mushroom, Black Truffle, Parmesan)
  • DESSERT - Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse Tart, Cranberry Orange Compote, Pepita Brittle
