Part of the 4th Annual HR in Hospitality™ Conference & Expo, Feb. 22 - 24, 2010; Register by Jan. 8, 2010, and Save $350.00

HORSHAM, PA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - Human Resource Executive® Conferences announced plans for the highly anticipated Cornell University HR Executive Roundtable, taking place at the National HR in Hospitality™ Conference, Feb. 22 - 24, 2010, at Wynn Las Vegas. Developed and sponsored by the Cornell Center for Hospitality Research, the prestigious Roundtable will be open to all attendees in 2010, a major modification from the previous year's invitation-only gathering.

"The HR Roundtable is a highlight of the conference, in which top-level professionals have a free-wheeling discussion on the most important HR topics. The amount of value attendees will get out of seeing how these experts attack problems is worth more than the conference registration fee," said David Sherwyn, Associate Professor of Law at Cornell's School of Hotel Administration. "The substance of the discussion is better than any HR textbook."

The two-part segment begins with a Plenary Session, "A Conversation Among Leaders: The Cornell University HR Executive Roundtable," in which conference attendees will hear hospitality's most influential HR thought leaders and senior executives tackle two of the hottest topics not covered in other plenary sessions.

The second part of the segment, "The Conversation Continues: A Dialogue Between Attendees and Cornell Roundtable Participants," will engage attendees in lively discussion sessions. This unique format gives attendees the opportunity to ask follow-up questions on issues emanating from the Roundtable, add their thoughts, and interact with the brightest minds in the industry. The discussions are followed by a networking reception.

HR in Hospitality™ is produced by Human Resource Executive® Conferences, Cornell University School of Hotel Administration and Cornell University ILR School, and endorsed by the American Hotel & Lodging Association. The conference will also feature segments on Employment Law, Labor Relations, HR Strategies, and HR Operations.

The HR in Hospitality™ Expo, open Feb. 22 - 23, will further assist attendees through access to vendors of products and services related to benefits, HRIS, legal, payroll, screening and assessment, training and recruiting.

Registration is open at, with a $350.00 discount until Jan. 8, 2010. Team registrations allow organizations to cover more and save more. For complete details, visit
