Choice Hotels Celebrates Major Milestones and 80 Years of ‘Stand-Out’ Success at 65th Annual Convention

ROCKVILLE, Md., 2019-May-01 — /Travel PR News/ — Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) marks its 80th anniversary by bringing together more than 5,000 hotel owners, general managers, and hotel staff for the company’s 65th annual convention in Las Vegas. Over the next three days, Choice leaders will present a vision for the future of the business and celebrate the company’s decades-long commitment to fueling the profitability of its franchise hotel owners consistent with the convention’s theme: Stand Out.

“The reason so many business owners trust Choice with their investment is that we were founded on the principles of hard work and respect for the value of a dollar—principles that we uphold to this day,” said Pat Pacious, president and chief executive officer, Choice Hotels. “We measure success by how well we empower our franchisees to grow their businesses, build better lives for their families, and invest in their communities. Convention is the perfect opportunity to thank our owners for their business and chart a course together for the future.”

Pacious will officially kick off convention by reinforcing the actions Choice has taken to strengthen its midscale presence, grow its upscale and extended-stay portfolio, and advance its technology leadership position, as well as recognize several “stand-out” company achievements. Last year, Choice Hotels:

“Choice’s exceptional 2018 was more than just a single good year—it builds on eight decades of delivering stand-out results for our 12,000 franchisees,” said Pacious. “We’ve grown Choice Hotels from a cooperative of seven motels to the publicly traded, global enterprise we are today because we put our owners’ profitability front and center, and always will.”

In the opening session, Pacious will update attendees on key areas of the Choice business, such as:

Queen Latifah, critically acclaimed musician, actress and entrepreneur, will share her success story as the opening keynote speaker. Convention attendees will participate in over 100 education sessions, brand sessions, and networking events designed to empower their success as business owners before rapper Flo Rida closes out the convention with a high-powered performance.
