Horsham, PA, November 10, 2010 — The HR in Hospitality Conference & Expo announced today its lineup of speakers that are truly admirable. The conference, taking place April 4-6, 2011, at Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C., will impart the specific guidance industry professionals need to learn to make the HR program at their property a success. The top-notch program for the 2011 event was developed by Human Resource Executive® Conferences and Cornell University and features six plenary sessions as well as nine breakout sessions spanning three conference tracks: HR and Public Policy, HR Strategies, and Current Trends in Labor and Employment Law.

In the Monday, April 4, plenary session attendees will get an exclusive look at what it takes to make Fortune magazine's list of "Most Admired Hospitality Companies" from those who have actually made the cut. Cornell University professor Bruce Tracey will moderate a panel of HR leaders he calls "the best of the best" from Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International, Wyndham Worldwide and Wynn Resorts as they discuss the programs that are instrumental to their employment culture and organizational effectiveness.

"We all have the goal of delivering on the reputation of our company's brand, for guests and for staff," said panelist Stephanie Rosol, VP of HR at Wynn Resorts. "I am looking forward to candid conversation about the questions, practices and challenges we all share, even when it looks from the outside as if we've 'made the cut.'"

The two-and-a-half-day event will feature many more senior leaders from prestigious organizations including Applebee's, Hilton Worldwide and OSI Restaurant Partners. They will dissect the latest developments and biggest challenges and offer attendees their experience-driven guidance.

According to Tracey, "What makes the conference unique is the opportunity it provides to learn insights regarding key HR policies and practices that you couldn't get anywhere else – straight from those who are responsible for making it happen."

Also on the agenda are some exciting networking events, including breakfasts, lunches, receptions and the Expo, featuring HR products and services for the hospitality industry. Visit to see the complete agenda and save $400.00 off registration through February 18, 2011.
