The sales and marketing team works with all of our sponsors to encourage them to create content that has value for all of our readers and goes beyond a business pitch, and so far everyone agrees that is working. We make editorial decisions based on experience and solid news judgment, and nothing else.

It makes coming to work each morning something I truly appreciate because I know it is not always easy to feel this inspired about the professional lives we lead. I am also happy to keep interacting with all of you who live and breathe hospitality. How lucky we all are to work in a space where our true calling is to provide shelter and sustenance. This is a worthy business – of that, I am sure.Thank you for sharing your time with us and thank you for your support as we continue to make Hotel Investment Today a better product with each passing day.I’ll see you at the next investment conference and I hope to speak with you even sooner.
