Current Projects
Professional Development Events

Oversees the Annual Hospitality Conference, which helps operators develop strategies for increasing revenues from hotels and other lodging establishments, as well as improve production techniques for serving these markets. Suggests sites for plant visits during other TRSA events such as the Production Summit and Plant Tours.


Develops process and protocols for hoteliers and outsourced hotel laundries to share operations data to improve the efficiency of hospitality linen services. Such research on hotels and resorts prompts hotel management to focus on key metrics for evaluating costs and improving quality, achieving greater energy conservation, reducing water consumption, improving labor management and more. TRSA members receive tools to assess their practices for interacting with their customers on contentious issues such as inventory loss.

On-Premises Laundry Calculator

Maintains a web-based utility that demonstrates the cost savings of outsourcing hotel/lodging laundry operations. This tool enables hospitality customers to determine their potential savings based on several inputs, including occupancy rate, estimated linen pounds per room and other factors.
