2015 INNKEEPER CONFERENCE and TRADE SHOW
East or West - B&Bs Are Best!
November 8-10, 2015
Holiday Inn South I-94
4751 Owen Ayres Court Eau Claire, WI 54701
call 715-830-9889 for the "B&B Conference" rate of $99.95 (double occupancy)
What's new for 2015?
NEW for 2015: TRADE SHOW time increased!
You've asked for it! Innkeeper attendees will have more time with their industry partners – the businesses that provide the products & services for managing the inn, guest amenities, etc. - at our expanded TRADE SHOW hours.
On Monday November 9, our conference space allows up to 15 industry vendor partners to ‘open for business’ a day early.
On Tuesday November 10, our TRADE SHOW dedicated space accommodates a total of about 40 industry vendor partners - and we welcomed 40 businesses at our 2014 conference.
During the Tuesday TRADE SHOW, no other events are scheduled from 8 am to 12 pm – so innkeepers and vendors have each other’s undivided attention!
Lunch immediately follows with the Industry Vendor Program: each briefly introduces their business and (if they participated) draws the winning business card from those collected at their booth.
Conference Program - the innkeeping trends and topics you want to hear!
We warmly welcome The B&B Team, lead by Rick Wolf and Peter Scherman, back to Wisconsin. Rick & Peter joined us at our 2010 conference, and it's time to get an update on the guest trends and operational insights from their experience and perspective. The B&B Team's mission is to assist innkeepers and future innkeepers in reaching your personal and financial goals in the Innkeeping industry. Whether you are looking to purchase an inn, sell your inn, or maximize your efficiency, marketing, and operations, Rick and Peter will speak with experience as innkeepers, brokers, and consultants.
Q4LAUNCH is joining us for the first time. We've seen the lines for their sessions at the national PAII (Professional Association Innkeepers International) conferences - and we now know why! Matt Bare will present the 'technical' stuff in an understandable way, and attendees will be able to indivudualize / adapt the information for their B&B.

General Session: The B&B Team—Rick Wolf and Peter Scherman
How to gain guest loyalty from millennials to boomers
Inns that are adapting to changing customer profiles are enjoying the benefits of a growing and more affluent millennial clientele who are seeking experiences as a part of their stay. We have been speaking about the importance of appealing to younger generations for years and have seen the positive impact on the bottom line that this focus has delivered to those innkeepers who have embraced the younger generations.

General Session: The B&B Team—Rick Wolf and Peter Scherman
Complete the Package: Branding your inn for maximum loyalty
We all know about great brands. Nike, FedEx, Coca Cola. But Innkeepers often don’t consider the brand of their inn. But an inn’s brand is their biggest asset and is a critical part of generating guest loyalty. By under standing the five essential elements of successful brands, whether large or small, innkeepers should learn how to develop their own distinctive brand.

By running your business every day for maximum value and understanding the importance of the marketplace, innkeepers can plan for the future and understand what can impact their exit.

How can you increase the amount of 5-star reviews your inn receives?
