BBIM attends 2012 PAII Innkeeping Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas this week.  The conference which began last night goes through Thrusday and is must for innkeepers around the globe.

Each year, PAII holds its annual conference and trade show in a different location in the U.S., and in 2013 the show will be in Las Vegas.

After checking into the Peabody Hotel last night, also where the conference is also held, a tradition they have is the Marching of the Ducks where 5 lucky and pampered ducks are escorted from the water fountain in the main lobby, into and elevator to the second floor and out to a patio den.

This morning after a lite breakfast we are all ready for all the many workshops that await us.  First up in the Welcome and Keynote address at 8:30 then it is off to some technical workshops.  Tomorrow it will be marketing.

Hope to do some sight seeing later on around Little Rock.  This is a nice town to come to for a first timer and I think I will return again.
