Eric Bass, Executive Vice President of GFI Development, will discuss the complete renovation of the historic Landmark Temple Court tower built in 1883 into the five-star Beekman hotel.

He has also served as the Owners Representative/Development Manager of The New York Palace Hotel where he directed the $120 million full renovation and repositioning of the hotel into a 5-Diamond property and has held various positions in senior management with Global Hyatt, The Plaza Hotel in New York City, and Doral Hotels and Resorts. Eric holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration.
