WHAT IS AHIC?

For the past 13 years, the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) has become a knowledge, networking and business platform for the Middle East’s hospitality investment community offering essential insights on investing in hotels, showcasing regional and international hospitality investment opportunities and facilitating direct connections with hospitality industry stakeholders.

Held annually in the UAE in April, it attracts around 800 hotel investors, major developers, leading financiers, and C-level hotel executives to attend three days of content, networking and events. For AHIC 2018, we are crafting a unique experience that pulls our attendees away from their day to day work routines to focus on the topics, relationships and opportunities which will move their business and the industry forward. Join us!
