A Day in the Life of an Innkeeper

Every year at the Annual Educational Conference, a seminar is held for Aspiring Innkeepers who are interested in learning the "ins and outs" of buying and starting a bed and breakfast. This year's seminar will be held on November 15, 2021 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm at the Wyndham Garden located at 310 Elks Club Road, Boalsburg, PA 16827 near State College.
There is no substitute for real life experience! A panel of seasoned innkeepers will walk you through "A Day in the Life of an Innkeeper - Aspiring, Perspiring, Retiring." With the panel's combined knowledge and experience in owning and operating a bed and breakfast, this seminar will cover: acquisition, financing, staffing, marketing, meal preparation, cleaning, and hospitality. You will be fully immersed in an intensely informative workshop that will be presented in a logical, step-by-step process.
If you are serious about investigating your passion to operate a bed and breakfast, it is imperative to go into the business with your eyes open to those decisions that are important for a successful and fulfilling personal experience.
Cost to attend is $100 per person or $160 for two people and includes lunch and a copy of The ABC's of Innkeeping. Registered attendees are welcome to attend the opening Plenary Session that starts at 9:30am.
