This is a preliminary Check List of components that will need to take place and be coordinated prior to and up to opening day. It is not a complete list as our initial meetings and onsite follow- up and remote sessions with IHG, Oracle and working with critical path vendors will uncover additional items that may need to be inserted, scheduled and completed in order to make your targeted Opening Day.

Our next step is to meet (Zoom) or On-site if your company is ready to commit, get under contract and start as soon as possible with your new target Opening Day in sight.
