Focus: Barter with us - Hotels & Other Things

  • Do you know anyone who owns hotels in USA or overseas?
  • What ILW wants: ILW would like hotel spaces in the US or overseas for no charge or at a significant discount. Our need for space is usually small, since we specialize in more intimate events, so a hotel deal would be in the four-figure range, something easy to work out and justify.
  • What you will get: ILW would like to offer free Expo exhibiting and speaking slots to anyone who can help make deals with hotels for space for our events. This is a win-win for all sides.
  • If you own hotels or know someone who has hotels, we would like to discuss this possibility with you. Please call us at 212-545-0818 or email
  • If there are other products or services that you would be interested in swapping with us, please call us at 212-545-0818 or email
