State Bank of Texas, America’s leading hospitality lender and one of the nation’s most successful community banks, has announced plans to exhibit at the upcoming 2021 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. The AAHOA event will take place August 3 – 6 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas. State Bank of Texas (SBT) can be found at Booth #1109 in the main hall during exhibit hours.
“We look forward to welcoming hoteliers from around the country to our hometown of Dallas,” said Sushil Patel, president of SBT. “The AAHOA national convention is one of the finest hospitality events in the country.”
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.
