PORTLAND — MEREDA will hold its next Morning Menu breakfast event “Hotel Development in Portland and in Maine” 7:30-9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at Portland Regency Hotel & Spa, Milk Street.
Matthew Arrants, one of the hospitality industry’s most respected professionals, and James Brady, one of Portland’s most prominent hotel developers, will share their views on the excitement and challenges of building hotels in both Portland and in Maine – and the prognosis for the hospitality industry in the immediate future.
Arrants is the executive vice president of Pinnacle Advisory Group in Boston, and is the former chairman of the International Society of Hospitality Consultants. He holds a Masters’ Degree in Hotel Administration from Cornell University and has worked in various managerial capacities for Four Seasons Hotel and with Rock Resorts.
Jim Brady is the moving force behind Portland’s dynamic Press Hotel, and is currently working on the new Hilton Canopy on Commercial Street in Portland. Brady has also been involved in hotel development and management throughout the State of Maine, United States and Europe. This powerful ensemble will provide their thoughts and anecdotes on the history of the hospitality industry regionally – and their best guesses for our future.
