Boutique Community Spotlight at the Stay Boutique Conference

BLLA is known in hospitality as the association that disrupts…basically, we like the good kind of change. This conference is meant to congregate the leaders and influencers in our community who will take the boutique sector to new heights (you thought boutique had it’s moment? You haven’t seen the power of boutique quite yet…)

THIS CONFERENCE HAS 3 PURPOSES

  1. educate the boutique community

  2. meet like-minded people 

  3. celebrate boutique

Our theme this year is: Boutique has made it, what’s next?

We will discuss everything that has to do with the boutique community: hotels, restaurants, bars, fitness studios, retail, festivals, parties and such. We believe that there is a whole new mindset that has come to life over the past few years, and that’s the boutique mindset. This includes the creative, forward-thinking and innovative people who believe in the power that “boutique” holds. BLLA is changing up the hospitality industry conference landscape drastically and will be launching the new wave of hospitality during this conference.
