UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Natalie Wainger and Jessie Glassmire, seniors in Penn State's School of Hospitality Management, are attended the Hunter Hotel Investment Conference at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta from March 26 to 28.

The hotel real estate and finance conference is intended for hotel owners, operators, financial institutions/lenders and related suppliers. This year's conference was titled "The Time is Now!" The keynote speaker was Chris Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton Worldwide.

"This conference is considered to be one of the top four hotel investment conferences," said Brian Black, director of hospitality industry relations in the School of Hospitality Management. "It provides our students with education and networking opportunities with executives from leading hotel brands, owners and lenders. Few students get the opportunity to network with so many executives at this level."

Education sessions at this year's conference are focusing on topics such as hotel valuations, franchising, case studies, industry trends, design and construction, buying and selling, branding, asset management and creative financing solutions.

Travel support for the students was provided by Shaner Hotels and Optimum Hotel Brokerage. The students were selected for their performance in the school's real estate class as well as the leadership they displayed through school-related clubs and activities.

Wainger has recently accepted a job with Marriott International as a finance manager in training. Glassmire accepted a job with LaSalle Hotel Properties as a financial analyst. Both will start their jobs after they graduate in May.
