BBAV Gathering in Richmond this Week

Earlier this week, Mac and I attended the annual conference of the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia (or BBAV), which occurred in Richmond this year. We always enjoy meeting up with fellow innkeepers in our state and learning some new tips about innkeeping.

One keynote speaker this year was Jay Karen, who is CEO of the Professional Association of Innkeepers (or PAII). We are also members of that organization, which is another great organization for our profession. PAII has launched a "Better Way to Stay" campaign that features some funny videos promoting the small lodging industry.

Here is a sample of the "Better Way to Stay" campaign.
