Hotel Investment Conference-South Asia (HICSA) is widely viewed by global industry leaders as the premier hospitality event for the South Asian region, valued for its networking opportunities and high-level contacts as much as for its content-rich sessions. Having rightfully created a niche for itself, HICSA brings together an impressive conglomeration of business leaders, think tanks and industry top brass, and has undoubtedly become one of the most coveted forums for all industry players in the region.

HICSA 2017 attracted nearly 500 delegates from across 18 countries, with overwhelming participation from hotel owners, investors, operators, bankers and industry specialists sharing their best practices, new ideas and latest market trends. The two-day conference saw a prestigious selection of speakers including Dr. A.B. Kerkar, Chairman, V Hotels; Arun Nanda, Chairman, Mahindra Holidays and Resorts India; Ashish Jakhanwala, Managing Director and CEO, SAMHI; Binod Chaudhary, Chairman, CG Corp; Christopher J Nassetta, President and CEO, Hilton; David Scowsill, President and CEO, World Travel and Tourism Council; Jonathan Vanica, Managing Director Asian Special Situations Group, Goldman Sachs; Kapil Chopra, President, The Oberoi Group; KB Kachru, Chairman Emeritus and Principal Advisor - South Asia, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group; Mark Hoplamazian, President and CEO, Hyatt Hotels Corporation; Michael Issenberg, Chairman and CEO - Asia Pacific, AccorHotels; Peter Henley, President and CEO, Onyx Hospitality Group; Peter Kerkar, Group Chief Executive Officer, Cox and Kings; Rakesh Sarna, Managing Director and CEO, Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris; and Vikram Oberoi, Managing Director and CEO, The Oberoi Group, to name a few.
