Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference 2019

Riding on Innovative Trends for Enhanced ROI

“Despite ongoing political and economic challenges, the key Asia-Pacific hotel markets are seeing encouraging levels of investment activity. Strong cross-border investor appetite suggests that prime hotels which come to market will continue to attract aggressive bidding.”

- Hotel Sales & Investment Briefing May 2018, Savills World Research

The good news is - hotel investment appetite remains robust in Asia Pacific. While the lack of prime assets for sales in developed markets has in a way constrained the transaction volume, hotel development pipelines across various markets have still seen steady growth in the past year.

Based on STR July 2018 data, a total of 370,700 hotel rooms were in construction in APAC, a 33.9% increase year-on-year and a 43.2% of the global number of rooms in construction, signifying the region’s position as the growth driver for the global hotel industry.

To counter the high land prices, the developers are diversifying their assets and projects, in terms of asset classes and scales. Innovative construction techniques and financing channels are being adopted to improve project yields.

On the other front, concerns on hotel brand consolidations persist, prompting hotel owners to reconsider the project scopes, as well as branding, positioning, management and distribution of their assets.

An important trend in the integration of co-living and communal spaces into hotels, necessitated by the changing consumer lifestyle and traveler behaviors, is providing additional revenue streams.

Under these changing dynamics, the Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference (APHIC), an IHIF Summit, returns to Bangkok, the Southeast Asia’s tourism gateway.

APHIC in 2019 will serve as the strategic platform for you to find ways to boost your investment return by establishing contacts with over 150 hotel owners/investors, operators, developers, policy makers, design/architect, master planners in Asia Pacific.

Whether you are looking to acquire, dispose, diversify, or to improve your asset performances, APHIC 2019 will provide you with the latest insights to excel in your goal.

To help you ascertain potential opportunities, APHIC will cover the following key topics:

  • Navigating political and geopolitical landscape and their long-term investment ramifications
  • Strategizing to protect owners’ interests amidst mergers and acquisitions of operators
  • Exploring investment and development opportunities for co-living and communal concepts in hospitality assets
  • Building cross-market boutique hotel portfolios
  • Boosting ROI of assets on a Gross Floor Area (GFA) basis through efficient design and proactive asset management
  • Exploring the financial viability and exit options in cryptocurrency and blockchain

Hotel investment appetite remains robust in Asia Pacific. While the lack of prime assets for sales in developed markets has in a way constrained the transaction volume, hotel development pipelines across various markets have still seen steady growth in the past year.

Yet, in developed markets, valuations are high, real estate is expensive, and acquisition opportunities are limited. This is forcing the hotel owners and investors to be savvy in choosing optimal investment opportunities, and also be proactive in asset management in order to generate the best ROIs.

As such, Questex Hospitality Group brings to you three concurrent events, covering the investment and asset management lifecycles for hotel and F&B investments and operations. These events will serve your needs to seek opportunities and drive return on investments, from hospitality assets across the region.
