Northstar Travel Group, Northstar Meetings Group's parent company and owner of global hotel-investment conferences, announced its newest brand, Hotel Investment Today. The digital publication is launching in early 2023 as the media presence of the BHN Group, Northstar's hotel and hospitality group.

Hotel Investment Today will provide breaking news, analysis of key deals, and profiles of dealmakers and developers within the hotel-investment industry.

"The hotel-investment community has looked to our organisation for more than 20 years to provide content, make business connections and move the industry forward through the Americas Lodging Investment Summit and all of our other global events," said Jeff Higley, president of the BHN Group. "We are eager to expand that role and provide the hotel-investment community with an outlet completely dedicated to reporting news and information that will help drive decisions pertaining to ROI and other essential KPIs."

Meet the team

Veteran industry journalist Jeff Weinstein has been named editor in chief. Weinstein previously served as editor in chief of Hotels for the last 29 years and created Hotels' Investment Outlook. He has received five Jesse H. Neal awards for excellence in business journalism.

"I am very excited to join the BHN Group, a leader in the hotel-investment conference space, and create its initial media presence," Weinstein said. "During my nearly 30 years of covering the business, I have always been stimulated the most by the dealmakers, owners and investment community. Launching this website from scratch with the utmost editorial integrity is such a creative opportunity to best serve the hotel-investment community that I had to jump at the chance."

Mary Scoviak, who has nearly 30 years of B2B publishing experience, was appointed as managing editor. Her background includes editor in chief of Hotels, executive editor of Hotels' Investment Outlook, and editorial and conference programming director for Boutique Design.

"I am honoured to be part of the BHN Group creating a new kind of 360-degree omnichannel platform to connect the global hospitality-investment community with need-to-know content, from breaking news to thought-leading business strategies," said Scoviak. "This is a dynamic point in the expansion of hotel investment to include a more diverse investor base, fresh solutions for new markets and innovation in deal structures. I look forward to the opportunity to communicate that at every touchpoint."
