Who are the creative provocateurs driving change and creating meaningful experiences in hospitality?

“We’re constantly looking to be fearlessly weird….and stretch what the brand can be” – Michael Lastoria, &Pizza

Earlier this Spring I was added as a Leadership Guidance Member to ILC, where I have been given the extreme honor to help grow this event. We hosted our first break-out half-day conference in Washington, D.C. where we interviewed legends in hospitality including &Pizza founder Michael Lastoria, VP of Starr Restaurants, Bradlee, and Martin Ditto of Ditto Residential.

We’re super proud to announce our participation and sponsorship of a Philly-born initiative that has grown into a well-attended two-day affair, full of discovery, and idea generation for owners and operators of independent hospitality projects.

Join us this fall for the Independent Lodging Congress 2 conference event in Brooklyn, NY October 17-19, 2018.

Gather with restaurateurs, real estate developers, financiers and hoteliers at the William Vale hotel, with sprinkled dinners and cocktail hours amongst the Brooklyn setting.

The self-proclaimed “anti-conference” is something like a much smaller and more intimate merge of C2Montreal meets SummitLA – where it’s all about creating memorable moments and connections with like-minded individuals. You’re invited to participate in relevant panel discussions, deep dive breakouts, and of course, great food and beverage.

ILC’s Mission 

ILC strives to connect visionaries and thought leaders inside (and outside) the independent lodging sector for the betterment of our industry and the guests we serve.

Cohere is always seeking to better connect our cohesive branding abilities to the projects that have an impact on the landscape of our urban environments – boutique and indy hospitality experiences are a huge influence on the future of cities and it’s our job to help make sure they reach their full potential on a regular basis.
