State Bank of Texas (SBT), America’s leading hospitality lender and one of the nation’s most successful community banks, has announced plans to exhibit at the upcoming 2023 national convention and trade show of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA).
With more than 18,500 hoteliers, AAHOA is the largest gathering of Asian American hotel and motel owners in the United States. In fact, AAHOA members own 60% of all hotels in the nation. The AAHOA event will take place April 11 – 14, 2023, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. SBT can be found at Booth #1648 in the Industry Partners section of the South Hall G-K.
“SBT is a proud AAHOA member, and we’re excited to once again exhibit at AAHOACON 2023,” said Sushil Patel, president of SBT. “It is a chance for us to connect with hoteliers from around the nation, and a chance for us to continue investing in the success of the hotel industry.”
AAHOA was established in 1989 and is the largest hotel owners association in the nation. The 19,500+ AAHOA members own almost one in every two hotels in the United States. With billions of dollars in property assets and hundreds of thousands of employees, AAHOA members are core economic contributors in virtually every community. AAHOA is a proud defender of free enterprise and the foremost current-day example of realizing the American Dream.
State Bank of Texas was founded in 1987 by hotelier Chan Patel and continues to be owned and operated by the Patel family, with Chan Patel (father) serving as CEO, Sushil Patel (son) as President, and Rajan Patel (son) as Chief Lending Officer and EVP. As the largest Indian-American-owned bank in the U.S., the bank focuses on lending within the hospitality industry.
