Sandman Savrann Co-Founds the Northwest Hotel Investment Forum
Boston, MA, New Haven, CT and Seattle, WA (April 4, 2011) – Sandman Savrann announced the creation of the Northwest Hotel Investment Forum (NHIF). The inaugural meeting of NHIF will be held on May 12, 2011, at Hotel 1000 in Seattle, Washington.
“Our clients and friends in the hotel industry continue to look for opportunities to meet high-level industry contacts and spur acquisitions, equity partnerships, and growth. The need particularly exists for stakeholders in the northwestern states,” said Irvin Sandman of Sandman Savrann. “We formed NHIF to help fill this need for our clients and the industry,” Sandman said.
NHIF’s co-founder is Mark Lukens of HREC real estate advisors. “We’ve worked closely with HREC and appreciate their shared devotion to the hotel industry. We’re glad we’ve found this additional opportunity to partner with HREC to benefit the industry,” said Russ Savrann of Sandman Savrann.
NHIF’s stated purpose is straightforward. It is a place where:
- Stakeholders learn about trends affecting hotel investment, ownership and development;
- Equity, debt, management and developers find each other;
- Stakeholders learn about opportunities in the region and eslewhere; and
- Investors, owners and developers who are new to hotels make industry connections.
“Participation and membership is by invitation to ensure that the discussion and networking are high-level, high value, and worthy of the members’ time,” Sandman said.
Sandman Savrann’s highly regarded hospitality industry counselors lead a team of professionals on the East and West coasts to deliver exceptional, cost-effective, and industry-informed counsel for local, regional, national, and international hotel companies. The firm’s structure includes two associated firms, Rudolph Friedmann in Boston and Vandeberg Johnson & Gandara in Seattle and Tacoma.
Sandman Savrann’s industry counselors are distinguished by their extensive knowledge, experience, contacts, and reputations in the hospitality industry. “Providing narrow, technical legal assistance is no longer enough,” said Sandman. “Hotel companies need counselors who also know the special relationships that exist in the industry, who have extensive contacts within it, and whose reputations are built on trust, loyalty and integrity. Then they can actually help clients create relationships and opportunities and accomplish objectives that otherwise might not be achievable.”
