Key industry players addressing the event will include FICO Corporation, TCC Land Asset World, Royal Group of Companies, Ascendas Hospitality Trust, Ireka Development Management, ARCH Capital Management, Origin, property PCL, Lodgis Hospitality, HKR international, CIMB Investment Bank, Zerin Properties, and Ovolo Group.

The discussion at the three-day conference will revolve around the themes: Investment Intelligence – overviews on trends & opportunities; Investment Strategies – partnerships, products & positioning; Tactical Investment – all about numbers; and, Market Outlook – Capitalizing on opportunities and overcoming the hurdles.

Swiss-Belhotel International chairman and president Gavin Faull said: “APHIC in Bangkok was another successful event and was a great opportunity to meet investors and also other professionals related to the hotel industry.

“For Swiss-Belhotel International, we made some valuable contacts and we have had a number of leads which will result in profitable business relationships being developed. We could not have done this without APHIC.”
