WHO WE ARE

Formed in 2012, the Emerging Leaders Network (formerly known as the Emerging Leaders Council) gives young hotel owners and operators under the age of 40 the opportunity to network and build better relationships within the IHG Owners Association and IHG. Since its creation, ELN has expanded its reach from the United States and Canada into Europe, with the creation of Europe's very own regional ELN group. 



WHAT WE DO

At the core of what we do, the Emerging Leaders Network in the U.S. and Europe offers a networking community for young leaders to join, connect and share their ideas and stories. We’re dedicated to elevating your business and providing access to business enhancing practices and resources that can help you grow and thrive personally and professionally. Our mission is to empower the future of the IHG Owners Association through our fresh perspective and unique expertise. 
ELN'S vision is delivered by three strategic pillars: 

  1. The Future of the Industry: Ensuring that the voice of the young owner is present to provide a unique perspective on Association priorities. 
  2. Personal Growth and Development: Facilitating experiences and exposure to help members grow their leadership profile and skills.  
  3. Fostering Collaboration: Creating opportunities for members to learn from each other, grow their business and build their network within the Association, IHG and the industry.
