HOTELS’ Investment Outlook magazine in strategic alliance with Burba Hotel Network

CHICAGO Hotel conference producer Burba Hotel Network has formed an international strategic alliance with HOTELS’ Investment Outlook magazine, a sister publication to HOTELS magazine. Both Burba and the HOTELS portfolio of magazines are leaders in communicating with the international hotel investment community.

The upcoming September issue of HIO will formally introduce the alliance with the addition of editorial content and survey results gathered from Burba’s network. In addition, Burba has joined HIO’s International Advisory Board.

We are looking forward to working with Dan Hogan, Jeff Weinstein and their excellent team to provide more information and better serve the needs of the global hotel investment community.”

HOTELS and HIO publisher Dan Hogan shares a similar sentiment. “Jim Burba and his team have built an incredible and highly-respected conference organizing business, and this strategic alliance will greatly benefit both of our companies.”
