Tanmay Patel
AAHOA Young Professional Director Western Division

“At AAHOA, we recognize the significant impact that Young Professionals have on our industry. Many Young Professionals say they don't see the same ROI in the industry as their parents did; they don't see the road to success the same way. And those are the types of topics that we are trying to address with HYPE Ownership."
Dylan Patel
AAHOA Young Professional Director Eastern Division

"We're trying to disseminate the message that there are so many different facets of the hospitality industry that can lead to success. We’re working to shape and evolve the future for the next wave of leaders; the launch of the HYPE Ownership initiatives underscores AAHOA's commitment to the future of our industry.”
Thank You, AAHOA Young Professional Hoteliers Committee,
