Gallagher and Co., Cintas Corp. and LodgeNet Interactive Corp. Moderated by Stefani C.

Two thousand-and-nine was clearly a year where the hotel investment and operational business opportunities were few and far between. Survival was instead the modus operandi for companies as they tried to overcome or steer around countless hazards and obstacles. It was not a year for the weak.

But out of even the darkest of times can often come new opportunities that can embolden an entire industry. So in an attempt to shed light upon such business prospects and their long-term implications, HOTEL BUSINESS® recently convened the Opportunity 2010 Roundtable, which was sponsored and hosted by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers and featured a group of industry-leading investment and management experts who are indeed gearing up for much bigger things this year and beyond.
