Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
The Superior Small Lodging Association (SSL), an association of small, independently owned inns, hotels, B&B’s, cottages, vacation homes and luxury condos in Florida, announced today that its annual conference will be held on December 6th and 7th 2015 in Delray Beach, FL. The theme of this year’s conference is “Partner’s in Excellence.”
“The association provides the small hotelier with a forum to work as a collective for branding, marketing and purchasing initiatives, something that is unavailable to them as a small independent property,” said Scott Rivelli, Executive Director of the association. “Since annual inspection is a requirement of membership the Superior Small Lodging brand has come to represent a standard of excellence and commitment to service that sets SSL members apart from other independently run properties.”
The annual conference gives small, independent innkeepers the opportunity to meet and share ideas, information and experience with their peers. The seminars are a chance to learn about new management and marketing opportunities for small properties and the trade show showcases new products and services that are available to the hospitality industry. Although mainly for its members, the conference is open to all owners and managers of lodgings of 50 rooms or less in the state of Florida.
This year’s conference will be held in Delray Beach, at the historic Old School Square Cultural Arts Center. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the perfect venue for a group that epitomizes the “Authentic Florida” feel with modern conveniences.
“We are excited to be holding our annual convention in Delray Beach,” said Rivelli. “The city has twice been awarded the “All-American City” award and in 2012 was named “America’s Most Fun Small Town” by USA Toda Travel. It’s a vibrant, intimate town and is a great place for our members to meet.”
