Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference to be held in May

The eighth edition of Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference (APHIC) 2016 is due to take place at Dusit Thani Bangkok from 25 to 27 May.

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.

Dr. Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Associate Professor and Director of The Institute of Security and International Studies at Chulalongkorn University, will present a talk on ‘ASEAN Political Risk and Investment Opportunity Overview’ at the conference.

“Having studied and explained about ASEAN, its evolution and development for more than 30 years, Dr. Pongsudhirak will inform hotel investors of impending political changes. Political instabilities within the recent years have propelled heightened awareness of political dynamics and challenges which are imperative for investors of all stripes across industries,” Questex Hospitality Group said in a press statement.
