Online Learning from Leaders

At the IHG Owners Association, we’re constantly striving to provide each of our valued members with top-notch tools and useful resources designed to help build and better their IHG-branded hotels. That’s why we developed our Expert Sessions, an ongoing, thought-provoking webinar series that offers exclusive content and educational insights on important topics and issues impacting the industry—all delivered by leading experts with experience in various specialized fields. These sessions are hosted as a live webinar conducted virtually through Webex, making it quick and easy to access. Our Expert Sessions are hosted throughout the year and are accessible via member email invitation.

Some recently featured presenters include President and CEO of AHLA, Chip Rogers, who outlined industry priorities in the near- and long-term, IHG’s VP of global sales strategy, Jonathan Kaplan, who dove into how a redesigned IHG Groups & Meetings program can help owners, and IHG’s VP of global paid media, Chris Copp, who presented the new marketing program IHG Ignite and how owners can make the most of it. Association members can attend these sessions free of charge, and recent webinar recordings are available exclusively to members on the Online Community
