Rocky Mountain
Members of the Rocky Mountain chapter attended HD Summit in February at La Cantera
Resort in San Antonio, Texas. Now in its 15th year, the invite-only HD Summit works like
a thought-camp, seeking to bring in ideas from outside the industry to enlighten and
inspire hospitality professionals in every facet of the industry. One of the best features
of the conference was the networking time with afternoon activities, such as horseback
riding and cave tours.
