A better representation of our growth…

Since its founding in 1999, our company has been known as Inn Development and Management or IDM Group LLC. But as our business continued to grow and our portfolio diversified, it became clear we needed to identify a new brand that better reflects how we do business today. In other words: it was time for a facelift.

To better articulate our growing client base, IDM Group LLC went through a rebranding process that included a new logo and an update to our name — IDM Hospitality Management. We think our new name and streamlined logo more accurately reflect the depth of services we currently offer our clients.

In addition, we’ve launched a new website,, which features updated information about our services, portfolio, leadership team, careers and media placements. The website also features a cutting-edge electronic user experience, which can be viewed on multiple devices.

Our mission is to be our clients’ trusted partner in the hospitality business. Today, we’re confident with the continued investment in our company that we can not only grow and thrive, but ensure our clients do as well. Thank you for joining us on our journey.
