“This year’s theme is about the awakening happening in hospitality right now. We have noticed a shift in mindset aligning with purpose, passion, and harmony. We are seeing that boutique hoteliers are becoming artisans, creating masterpieces that embody a sense of belonging for travelers. Together, as a community, we are co-creating a new way to travel, a new way to experience life. This conference is the central platform for new ideas to be born and for magic to take place,” says Ariela Kiradjian, COO of BLLA.

The Agenda has more than 75 sessions including presentations, keynotes, boot camps on various subjects, fireside chats with iconic leaders, and much more. BLLA also invited some of the industry’s top hospitality association chiefs to participate with an update. “We are an open and all-inclusive association who loves to engage the broader industry,” said Frances Kiradjian, CEO. “We are all in this together and the pandemic has shown that more than in the past I believe. Collaboration, friendly, generous, and open communication help us all rise together for the greater good. That might be a cliche, but it’s truly heartfelt.”
