The thought of networking and meeting new people is nerve-wracking for many. We get it, it’s much easier to live, work and interact with those that you already know. However, for independent hoteliers who want to grow their business, staying behind the front desk is not a long-term solution for building your brand.

For many independent operators, building strong relationships with members of their local community has created a reliable network that provides valuable referrals and incremental income. What’s great about community relationship building is that any independent hotelier can participate – it just takes an investment of time, energy and creativity.
