JMBM's Meet the Money® marks its 25th anniversary in 2015 — National Hotel Finance & Investment Conference – May 4-6, 2015 in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES – Meet the Money®, the premier national hotel finance and investment conference will convene for its 25th annual event on May 4-6, 2015 in Los Angeles. Since 1990, the conference has connected attendees with the industry’s top executives and leaders.

“When we established Meet the Money® 25 years ago, our purpose was to provide hotel developers and owners with a forum to meet capital providers and to gain insight on debt and equity financing,” said Jim Butler, Chairman of JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group®. “This milestone signifies our continued commitment to that vision."

Each year, Meet the Money® brings together 400 hospitality executives and capital providers to discuss the latest trends in hotel finance in a casual and lively atmosphere. Meet the Money® 2015 will provide the latest information on hotel industry fundamentals and numerous panel discussions by the industry's top thought leaders and innovators. The conference will include two evening receptions, two breakfasts and lunches, and plenty of networking time to meet leaders and make deals.

"One of the best parts of Meet the Money® is the stream of messages we get afterward from participants who tell us that they found a new capital source, or are doing a deal with someone they met at the conference," said Guy Maisnik, Vice Chair of JMBM's Global Hospitality Group®.

Butler also acknowledged the dozens of company sponsors and hundreds of speakers who have contributed their time and resources to Meet the Money® throughout the years. "Each year, we are delighted to add new speakers and sponsors," he said. "But many of them have been with us since our early years, and without their commitment, we would not be celebrating 25 years of success."
