Wake County Hotel Development Summit

June 28, 2019

Chamber President Denise Nowell and Town Planning Director Michael Clark attended the inaugural Wake County Hotel Development Summit on Thursday, June 13.

Throughout the report out of the Destination Strategic Plan by the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau and JLL in the fall of 2018, Zebulon and other Wake County municipalities talked about the need for strategic hotel development.


This first of its kind Hotel Development Summit provided content on structuring a hotel development plan, the questions to ask, the resources needed and the developers to contact. Attendees from 9 of Wake County’s municipalities as well as representatives from several hotel development groups were part of the conversation. The event laid the foundation for strategic planning to increase hotel development.
