“The top industry developers, operators, lenders and investors attend CHRIS and HOLA each year, making it a great place to network and to do business.”
“The CHRIS and HOLA organizers are careful to include relevant, timely, and important topics in the programs. These events are a great place to hear the latest updates, trends, and predictions – directly from leaders in the industry.”
“Attending CHRIS and HOLA is a cost-effective way to do business in both the Caribbean and Latin America. The back-to-back nature allows twice the networking, while only traveling to one place. The location of the events, in Florida – only adds to the value.”
“Hosting CHRIS and HOLA back-to-back in the highly accessible Miami market, makes it very easy for those of us with deals and interests in both the Caribbean and Latin America to conduct business and have key clients & targets be able to get in and out efficiently. It’s a great idea, and the well-organized nature of the event and venue has made networking and knowledge-sharing highly effective relative to these challenging regions… which is why we sponsor and attend every year!”
“CHRIS & HOLA are extremely well-executed hotel investment conferences. We particularly like the back-to-back nature of the two events, as it gives us the opportunity to efficiently market to new and existing clients in two regions through one medium in one convenient location.”
