Annual HR conference offers innovative ways to drive business results; Register by Feb. 18 to save $400.00

Horsham, PA, February 10, 2011 — Every organization shares a common and priceless asset: its employees. At the 5th Annual National HR in Hospitality Conference & Expo in Washington, D.C., CEOs of well-regarded hospitality organizations will discuss how they've created results with limited resources by focusing on their people. The conference will take place April 4-6, and registrants can save $400.00 off the door fee through February 18.

Year after year, HR hospitality professionals convene at this unique event to discover new and proven ways to resolve difficult work issues, from healthcare reform and discrimination claims, to immigration policy enforcement and many others. The conference agenda features six plenary sessions and nine breakout sessions, all designed to drive growth in today's recovering economy.

Conference attendees can also interact with speakers during exciting networking and luncheon events and explore vendor booths in the Expo Hall. Visit www.hrinhospitality.com to see the complete agenda and to register before the savings expire.

In the Wednesday morning plenary, HR and the C-Suite: Driving Business Results Through People Strategy, JoAnne Kruse, Conference Program Chair and founder of HCpartners, will lead a panel of corporate leaders as they share their experiences championing their people strategy as a key component of their business strategy. The leaders are John Longstreet, president and CEO at Quaker Steak and Lube; David Marriott, COO of Americas Eastern Region at Marriott International; and Conrad Wangeman, AVP of the Northeast USA and Canada at Hilton Worldwide.

Even though these executives have varied backgrounds, they all share a belief that they can impact operating results through a consistent approach to HR strategy. And for the benefit of the conference attendees, they'll impart their own strategic HR solutions for the current and foreseeable operating environment.

"This is a unique opportunity to share in a candid discussion with operating executives who believe that 'good HR practice' is actually 'good management'," said Kruse. "Participants will learn what these high-impact executives believe are the key people drivers to their success, and what they see as important trends for HR professionals and businesses."
