Email

The South East Asia Hotel Investors’ Summit, created by HOFTEL, the global hotel owners’ alliance, is back with a brand new set of topics and many senior speakers 

We have an agenda focused on many of the key issues facing the industry today including:
  • The Vietnam boom – is it sustainable?
  • Management, OTA and loyalty programme fees on the same booking. Really?
  • Is it time for franchising to take off?
  • Too dependent on China – how safe is reliance on a single inbound market
  • Can boutique luxury groups give you a bottom line?
  • Australia – too late or too early to put in your capital?
  • Has the sharing economy hurt the hotel sector?
  • Creating a new story for the public markets
  • How can you secure a financial return when hotel yields and debt rates are so close?
  • Elections – red light or green light for the sector?

SEAHIS is expected to attract 250-350 senior executives from the hotel sector, of whom around 90 will be speakers, making the event more like a senior management seminar than a mass participation conference.

Confirmed speakers to date include;
  • Suchad Chiaranussati, CEO, SC Capital Partners
  • Tommy Lai, CEO, GHM
  • Gordon Oldham, Pavilions Hotels and Resorts
  • Aron Harilela, CEO, Harilela Hotels
  • Brian Williams, Deputy Chairman, Swire Hotels
  • Piyaporn (“Ann”) Phanachet, CEO U Cit
  • Tony Ryan, Head of M&A, Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels
  • Bill Barnett, Founder, C9 Hotelworks
  • Norbert Vas, Head of Development,  Archipelago International
  • Timmy Ho, Head of Corporate Affairs, Cornerstone Partners
