Hiltons Bright 2012 Outlook & Marriott-Schrager Venture Expands - January 20, 2012

As we start a new year, everyone is looking to the industry icons for their take on the business environment. Next week, there will be 2,000 attendees (including myself) at the American Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS) in Los Angeles for this exact purpose. All of the major industry development players will be there and industry greats like Bill Marriott will be addressing attendees.

Yesterday morning on CNBC, three Industry Leaders broke out of the gate (pre-ALIS) with some powerful messages. Today, we bring you two powerful video interviews with three major industry leaders.

It is our pleasure to be able to share these optimistic and insightful interviews with our industry friends.

Wishing you a prosperous year in 2012!

Kind regards,
