Tambourine Recommends: Independent Lodging Congress, Oct. 21-23 in NYC

June 19, 2015 • By
ILC-Indie-Awards There are many conferences and industry events every year worthy of your consideration, including the Independent Lodging Congress, which takes place October 21-23 in New York City at The High Line Hotel. Now in its third year, Independent Lodging Congress is sort of like the Woodstock ’99 of hotel conferences (except with less rioting and looting). Independent Lodging Congress is an annual gathering where people who are passionate about hotels and hospitality discuss how they can make lodging assets more creative, adventurous, and welcoming to their guests. Here are some of the topics to be discussed at ILC: immersive travel, the devaluation of luxury, the popularity of small-footprint properties and guestrooms, cannabis tourism, innovative cuisine, authenticity in independence, the sharing economy, soft brands, hostels and much more. (Please note: there will not be a panel on “Millennials,” and in fact, ILC will have a special swear jar at the conference just for people who use buzz words like “Millennials”—ILC is not a buzzword conference, so get all your “Millennials” and “ROIs” and “value-adds” out of your system now…) The Conference will also host the INDIE Hotel Awards, which recognize innovation in four categories:
  • BEST DIGITAL MARKETING FOR AN INDEPENDENT HOTEL – If you’re someone who specializes in marketing or web design for independent hotels, this is the category for you! (Disclaimer: we are the sponsor of this award)
  • BEST OF THE BEST IN INDEPENDENT LODGING –This is the award for the best independent hotel—in the world!
  • BEST HOTEL BAR OR RESTAURANT. Any restaurant or bar operated in an independent hotel is eligible for this award.
  • INNOVATIVE HOSPITALITY DESIGN – This award goes to the design firm that makes an independent hotel one of a kind from a visual and design standpoint.
