OUR EVENTS

Powered by the Boutique and Lifestyle Leaders Association, Stay Boutique Live is the house that encapsulates all of our renowned events and conferences. 

THE LEADERSHIP EDITION
We discuss everything that has to do with the boutique community: hotels, restaurants, bars, fitness studios, retail, festivals, parties and more. Our community and audience includes the creative, forward- thinking and innovative people who believe in the power that “boutique” holds.  
Note: This Edition is a part of the 3 Part Event in 2019: Stay Boutique Live, The Trifecta

THE FEMALE EMPOWERMENT EDITION
While we are seeing more women in top roles, there is a huge gap in boardrooms and on speaking circuits at major events. This group consciously creates programs for women to support each other and to discuss, debate and deliberate on issues of importance to women in travel, tourism & hospitality.

THE SOCIAL CLUB DINNER SERIES
We believe that the right people must meet and collaborate with each other so the boutique sector can fully grow. Thus, we launched our dinner series which hosts 10 thought-provoking boutique leaders in a local community to talk about pertinent topics and conspire together and the future of boutique.

THE HISTORY OF STAY BOUTIQUE LIVE

2009
We begin our story in Miami where we launched small 100-person luncheons. This is also the same year when Frances Kiradjian launched BLLA: The Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association to be the first organization to support boutique hotels and the community surrounding these independent hotels. 

2010
The hospitality industry took BLLA into their arms and loved the association's values. They indicated that they wanted more formal conference focused on the boutique hotel world. 

2012
BLLA listened to the industry and gave them what they wanted: the first conference dedicated to boutique with The International Boutique & Lifestyle Leadership Symposium hosted at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. 

2013
Then the industry begged for an investment conference focused on boutique hotels, and of course BLLA worked hard to create a new event series dedicated to the money in these unique hotels. BLLA launched The Boutique Hotel Investment Conference that summer

2015
Then the powerhouse women within boutique hospitality wanted a gathering center. Actually, in 2008 Frances had created a group of 10,000 women on LinkedIn as a support system for women in travel. As a natural addition to the BLLA events series, the Hospitality & Travel Executive Women's Industry Conference was launched. 

2016
This is the year our conferences took a major turn when we started the counter-culture of corporate within hospitality. Our events became more experiential and more focused on inspiring boutique minds. This year, we launched Stay Boutique Magazine: the publication distributed at our events because we believed in the magic of print. 

2017
We disrupted the entire hospitality industry this year by proclaiming that: boutique is not just a hotel, it's an experience & any industry can join the community. We continued producing hospitality's favorite and most respected events. BLLA also launched their new brand: Stay Boutique, the brand to represent the movement of boutique. 

2018
This was the year everything changed, where we launched the world's newest industry: The Boutique Industry aka The Boutique Community that consists of hotels, restaurants, bars, fitness studios, art galleries, coffee & juice shops, retail stores and brands. We announced that no longer was boutique a part of the hospitality industry but that the hospitality industry was now a part of the boutique industry (aka the tables turned). We also launched our Social Club Dinner Series in collaboration with The Hoxton in London.
