About the 2019 Leadership Edition

The Leadership Edition began in 2012 as an event aimed at elevating the voice of hoteliers in the boutique sphere. This conference now reaches every corner of an exciting niche that has had a long climb to legitimacy. Hoteliers, designers, suppliers, artisan coffee brewers, artists, independent retailers, and even consumers congregate at the Leadership Edition to gain the inspiration needed to push boutique forward. Participants, speakers, presenters, panelists, and even Stay Boutique’s very own COO, Ariela Kiradjian, will tell you that “a boutique hotel is a provider of an experience that you can’t get anywhere else.” This is where our participants are exposed to an inspirational day of presentations from the thought leaders of today’s boutique industry.
