“This conference unlike most others actually had a good mix of owners, service providers, bankers and etc. It had all the right people from the industry there together. The planning of the event was very well by keeping the audience regularly engaged. Quick example was over lunch. During the panels the audience could come into the conversation and bring their thoughts to the floor where we also had audience and panelists answering the queries. Overall a fabulous and engaging event.”

From a business developers perspective the audience comprised of an attractive mix of investors, developers and operators and we feel our investment as a Platinum Sponsor was well place. Well done and many thanks”
- JENS O. REICHERT, VP DEVELOPMENT ASIA PACIFIC, MÖVENPICK HOTELS & RESORTS
“As Chairman of the region’s leading international association of hotel owners, HOFTEL, I really want to see conferences that have content which is new and relevant to the hospitality investment community, as well as giving owners the chance to express their opinions. Last year’s Tourism Destination Investment Conference, while not the largest in Asia, fulfilled those needs and I’m sure the upcoming IHIF Asia will be just as rewarding.”
-SIMON ALLISON, CHAIRMAN, HOFTEL
