ALP Allied Members

Your business has the products and services lodging and hospitality professionals need to operate, manage, and market their properties successfully.

When you become an Allied Partner Member of the Association of Lodging Professionals (ALP), you’ll be able to connect with many different types of professionals in the hospitality industry in ways that make solid business sense.

We here at ALP value your commitment to the industry, and we are committed to providing value to you, along with strengthening our business-to-business relationship, and your business-to-customer relationship.

ALP is the association for a variety of independent lodging owners who view hosting guests as a profession. 

In the search for the best in products, consultation, and services for managing properties, hosts rely on, in part, ALP to provide them with information and access to resources.

ALP’s Aspiring (future) members are diligently researching the businesses they’ll soon rely on for their properties. From the direct one-to-one in-person opportunities at the Annual Conference & Trade Show to news and information in our newsletters, magazines, and on our website, there are multiple venues for you to connect with the hospitality community.

Benefits for Allied Partners

Website & Directory

The Vendor Directory pages are among the most visited pages on the website and these pages are public, that is, viewable by everyone not just members of ALP.

Using the Industry Resources tab, viewers will find your descriptive listing which includes links to your website and social media, contact information, and logo. Your future clients are not always going to search by business name, or scroll through every description. So, in addition to the alphabetical listing, your business is listed on the Vendor Member Directory by Category.

Send your listing information to: [email protected]
