Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference 2016 kicks off
The eighth edition of the annual Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference (APHIC) 2016 kicked off on 25 May at Dusit Thani Bangkok.
APHIC, part of the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) Summit Series of events, will welcome 40 international speakers and over 200 delegates representing more than 150 hotel and real estate companies.
The three-day event, organised by international conference powerhouse Questex Hospitality Group, gathers local and international delegates, including leading hotel owners, investors, operators, developers, policymakers, designers, architects and master planners.
“Day 0 began when delegates took part in the IHF networking express session where they only had 45 seconds each to pitch and to exchange business cards with over industry movers and shakers. The delegates met over 30 executives each in the one hour session,” Questex Hospitality Group said in a press statement.
“The “Battle of the Brands: Hotel brand strategies under the microscope” panel discussion, moderated by Eric Levy, managing director, Tourism Solutions International, along with six other panelists, set the bar high with their lively discussions, insightful innovations and best takeaways for the audience whose industries range from regional hotel owners, investors, developers to stakeholders.”
The day ended with delegates gathering at the lobby lounge of Dusit Thani for an intimate welcome cocktail reception.
Dusit Thani Bangkok is hosting the event for the fourth consecutive year. Exclusive delegate offers and upgrades have been arranged at selected Dusit Hotels and Resorts in Thailand during and after the event.
According to the organisers, the AHPIC 2016 is still open for delegate registration. Details and other information are found on the conference website ihif.questexevents.net.
