Published six times annually, in addition to its online digital presence, Hotel F&B reaches nearly 60,000 hoteliers and more than 17,000 hotels, resorts, casinos, conference centers, luxury inns, cruise lines, spas, purchasing companies, management companies, and corporate headquarters locations in the U.S. and Canada.
