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 our 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 provides 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 Four
1. Franchising in the lodging industry continues to grow in both volume and prominence. From economy and select service properties in small towns in the United States to 3,000-room casino hotels and ultraluxury properties in commercial centers around the world, franchising touches virtually every segment of the industry. Many legal issues arise in hotel franchising that do not (or rarely) arise in franchising in other industries. This panel of experienced in-house and outside hospitality lawyers focuses on issues unique to franchising in the lodging industry, including managed-to-franchised “flips”; franchise disclosure challenges affecting sophisticated enterprises; vicarious liability issues; Americans with Disabilities Act compliance; Consumer Products Safety Commission actions and inquiries related to the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act (VGBA); and challenges in international development, including diligence and disclosure.
