hd americas preview from the show director miami heat I'd like to start this month's letter with a big thank you to all of you who helped make HD Expo such a great success once again this year. It was so invigorating to talk to people about the industry's growing momentum and how HD Expo is an important part of that overall success. We had a new location for our sold-out Party by the Pool at Mandalay Bay's Daylight Beach Club. It was so nice to gather at a venue close to the main hotel property and the less-than-a-year-old venue created a good party atmosphere-even encouraging some folks to dive right in to cool off! For those of you who were not able to join us because of your busy schedules, we have a highlight video and the taped keynote conversation with design legend Michael Bedner on our website ( that will give you a taste of all the fun we had. Don't forget to mark your calendars for next year, May 13th-15th at Mandalay Bay. See you there! In the meantime, we're gearing up for HD Americas, which will be held September 16th-17th at the Miami Beach Convention Center. In fact, I have some exciting announcements to share. We are thrilled that Arthur Casas, founder of Studio Casas in Brazil, agreed to join us as our keynote speaker. Guests in attendance will be provided with an intimate look into the growth of hospitality development in South America from one of the originators. I encourage you to visit for the full conference program that includes a roster of talented and informative speakers as well as our ever-popular Owners' Roundtable event. It always sells out, so get your tickets early. Registration is now open. The new direction of this show is helping us make strides to deliver content specifically focused on Latin America and the Caribbean. With all the work that is currently happening in the region, we know that HD Americas will be a huge success. I hope you can join us! Until next month.
