This program, cosponsored with the American Hospitality and Lodging Association, examines the latest trends, cases, and developments affecting the evolving practice of hospitality law. With so many national and international hospitality companies, along with vendors and lawyers serving those companies, now headquartered in the Washington, DC region, Georgetown Law is a natural venue for this exciting event. Starting with the General Counsel Roundtable featuring the GCs from Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Choice Hotels International, Inc., FelCor Lodging Trust, Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and Wyndham Worldwide Corporation and continuing with sessions analyzing the most critical topical issues facing owners and operators, this two-day seminar will provide you with practical advice you can take back to your office and use the next day. This program was planned by a national advisory board of hospitality law professionals to guarantee that its subjects are topical and pragmatic and its speakers the most knowledgeable in the field.
Part One:
1. Hotels collect a considerable amount of information from their guests for marketing purposes and to provide better customer service. Meanwhile, a body of data privacy laws has developed, which seeks to ensure that businesses collecting and using customers’ information do not infringe on customers’ privacy. Every hotel operator should understand data privacy laws regulating the collection and use of a guest’s information. This panel of data privacy experts provides an overview of these laws and offer practical advice on maintaining compliance and responding to allegations of noncompliance.
2. This panel of experienced finance attorneys discusses and analyzes the latest legal trends, developments, and case law impacting the financing of hotel developments in the United States.  The speakers consider the viewpoints of owners, lenders, and brands.  Topics include the latest developments in cash management and lockbox usage, carveouts to nonrecourse debt, the use of SNDAs, CMBS lender concerns, syndicated loans and multilender complications, issues in dealing with special servicers, and the financing of renovations and property improvement plans.  The experts also address new debt and equity capital sources, including EB-5 and tax credits, mezzanine debt, and intercreditor arrangements.
