AAHOA Reschedules 2020 Convention & Trade Show

  • 03.13.20

The 2020 AAHOA Convention & Trade Show is being rescheduled to August 9-12. It will still be held in Orlando, Fla., at the Orange County Convention Center.

“AAHOA is committed to bringing America’s hoteliers, our industry partners, and the hospitality industry the best possible convention and trade show,” said Cecil P. Staton, president/CEO, AAHOA. “The travel and tourism industry is facing uncertain times as the public’s perception of the risks posed by COVID-19 become the reality for America’s hoteliers. AAHOA members are reporting that occupancy, RevPAR and ADR are in distress. Hoteliers and our partners need this time to tend to their businesses as the travel and tourism industry adjusts to this new reality. Earlier this week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in response to the growing threat of COVID-19. Just today he called on the state’s cities and counties to postpone or cancel mass gatherings.”

He added, “While we are obviously disappointed in this turn of events, we are confident that rescheduling the convention is the right decision for our members, industry partners and our association.
