Join Us In 2021

Together We Are StrongerTogether We Are Stronger


The IHG Owners Association recognizes the difficulties our members are facing in the wake of COVID-19. From witnessing record-low occupancy levels to operating in regions where government shutdowns are required, we understand the value of each dollar being spent. With that in mind, we are offering a 20 percent discount on membership dues for 2021 to help alleviate some of the financial pressure hoteliers are facing. All members also will receive an additional 10 Free Nights to use in 2021 since many were unable to travel in 2020.

It is now more important than ever to stay connected with fellow owners and the Association as we provide advice and counsel to IHG to meet the challenges our industry faces. We are better together, and together we will navigate the future of hospitality.
