The hotel investment landscape in Asia Pacific has experienced tremendous changes in 2015 – 17. With geo-political challenges, government policy changes and security concerns looming in the background, investors are increasingly diversifying their portfolios.
Industry consolidations, brand proliferation and changes in distribution landscape have prompted the hotel owners to rethink their relationships with hotel brands and operators.
While the appetite for cross-border investment has continued to increase, available opportunities at reasonable prices are progressively scarce. The lack of available assets in certain key markets have driven hotel owners and real estate developers to focus on greenfield developments, while high land prices in other markets have encouraged them to innovate with redevelopments and conversions.
In this challenging pursuit of ROI, the best-connected and the best-funded investors with the best strategies will prevail.
In this environment, The Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference (APHIC), an IHIF Summit, returns to Bangkok, the Southeast Asia’s tourism gateway. Together with our key partners, APHIC will serve as the ideal opportunity to gain access to new hospitality projects in the region and to establish contacts with over 200 hotel owners/investors, operators, developers, policy makers, design/architect, master planners in Asia Pacific.
