The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) reported maximum turnout yesterday at the inaugural Young Professionals’ (YP) “Day at Hyatt” at Hyatt Hotels headquarters in Chicago.
The daylong event included two Hyatt hotel tours, Hyatt-specific educational sessions, and modules on sales and operations support, design and planning, and development.
Almost three dozen AAHOA members – including AAHOA Chairman Bharat “Bruce” Patel, Vice Chairman Bhavesh Patel, and AAHOA Treasurer Hitesh “HP” Patel – made the trip to Chicago for a chance to learn from and network with Hyatt leaders.
“Today has been a great networking, learning, and eye-opening experience for the AAHOA Young Professionals, and it would not have been possible without AAHOA and its valued brand partners,” said AAHOA Director at Large (Western Division) Nishant “Neal” Patel. “Events like this one provide so much value to our membership and prove that AAHOA is working for its members.”
The AAHOA officers were equally excited to be part of the event.
“AAHOA is dedicated to offering the best possible resources for professional development, especially to our younger members,” said AAHOA President and CEO Chip Rogers. “It was wonderful to see so many of our youngest and brightest in Chicago.”
The next AAHOA brand workshop will be provided by Hilton at its headquarters in McLean, Va., on Oct. 24.
