FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who should attend Fall Regional Meetings?
Everyone. It’s that simple. OK, specifically, we mean CHOC Brand owners (Quality, Clarion, Comfort, Sleep Inn, Mainstay), ELFA and ROA owners, licensees, general managers, housekeeping, maintenance, front desk, sales & marketing staff. Why? Fall Regionals are THE place for your entire team to gain insights and information that will help them raise their game, inspire ambition, and encourage ownership of their daily role and your customers’ satisfaction. Seriously, bring the team. They’ll be glad you did, and so will you.
How are Fall Regional meetings different than Choice Hotels International’s Convention?
The CHOC Fall Regionals are purposefully designed to be more locally and financially accessible so all your property staff can join you, and we design the meeting content so it will benefit your entire team. Our CHOC Fall Regional meetings are a CHOC-led event, whereas the Choice Hotels Annual Convention is a Choice-led event.
How much of an investment should I plan on for Fall Regionals?
Your CHOC membership ensures that your property already has one reserved spot at your Fall Regional event.
You will be responsible for all travel, transportation, accommodations, and meals not already provided at the events.
Additionally, additional hotel staff can attend for a nominal charge of $249 per person when registered and paid prior to registration closing.
