Events Hosted by LIHA

The LIHA hosts various events throughout the year for its members, and for those interested in the Association.

Lunch with keynote speaker and hotel expert, Anthony Melchiorri, who is an especially well-known presence in the hospitality industry and in Long Island alike. Anthony is the creator and host of the hit Travel Channel series, Hotel Impossible, and has many years of experience and an extensive knowledge of how to run a business efficiently. At the lunch, the LIHA will also present their hospitality scholarships to young, up and coming students that are studying the hospitality arts. This will be incredibly meaningful as the mission of the LIHA scholarship is to help guide young students to be Long Island’s next great leaders in the hospitality industry and to continue their growth within their community.
