Download the Programme

The global hospitality market remains buoyant despite economic and geopolitical uncertainty, and customer behaviours and needs are changing. Hotel investors are looking more than ever at new strategies as they need to be adaptable to remain successful. Real estate investors specialising in other asset classes are now looking more closely at hospitality as an incubator for new investment opportunities: there is a potential for convergence of strategies, new thinking, new deals. In 2019, the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) is inviting the leaders and innovators of hospitality investment to build even more opportunities by Partnering for Peak Performance

The IHIF 2019 conference programme will look at new growth strategies for all stakeholders, whether they are to be found in traditional markets, emerging destinations, improved asset management or operational strategies, or alternative lodging concepts. Over three days, the event will bring together over 2,300 leaders of hospitality investment from 80 countries  to share their expertise, meet new partners and make deals. Until then make sure  to follow IHIF on Twitter @IHIF_News and use #IHIF2019 to stay up to date with the latest news from the leading annual meeting place for the industry. Also find us on Facebook, Instagram and join our LinkedIn group for industry insight and discussion

IHIF 2019 will take place 4-6th March 2019.

Yours Sincerely,

The IHIF Team
