Southern Innkeeper Annual Conferences


Southern Innkeepers was founded in 1908 and is proud to be the oldest lodging organization in the United States.  The association’s goal is to promote interaction among professionals from the finest resorts in the southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.


Southern Innkeepers offers its members unique opportunities for educational sessions and networking with peers in the Southeast by meeting once a year.  Meetings are both educational and social with spouses and family also in attendance.  The mornings of meetings are devoted to educational sessions on timely topics with afternoons offering free time to experience resort and local activities.  Annual meetings are hosted by Southern Innkeeper Association hotelier members.
