The Association of Hospitality Professionals (“AHP”) is an affiliation of highly qualified and experienced Hotel Owners, Investors, and Service and Product Providers in the Hospitality Industry. There are no requirements to participate in AHP other than by being a Hospitality Professional. AHP meetings occur bi-monthly at Co-Star Group, Inc.’s offices in Irvine, California.

The mission of AHP is to provide its participants an opportunity to network with other Hospitality Professionals, access to up-to-date information on current issues affecting the Hotel Industry, and a safe and non-competitive environment for participants to openly discuss and share input on industry and business concerns. This mission is accomplished through speaking engagements by professionals in the Hospitality Industry and/or panel discussions on key topics relevant in this day and age, networking sessions at each meeting, and marketing opportunities such as providing a platform for participants to publish articles through AHP’s website and LinkedIn page.

AHP is managed by its participants who have volunteered their time. Eric Dean and Stephanie Zapalac are co-chairs of AHP. For more information about AHP, you may contact Eric by email at or by phone at 949-788-8900, and Stephanie can be reached at To be added to the AHP mailing list, you can contact Chelsea Young by email at
