Grand Hyatt Mumbai, India

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.

The program will feature a series of master classes and keynotes by subject-matter experts; interviews and thought-provoking discussions with industry stalwarts; and a number of engaging panel discussions. Notable speakers at this year’s event include prominent industry leaders such as Alan Watts, Executive Vice President and President - Asia Pacific, Hilton; Arne M. Sorenson, President and CEO, Marriott International; Ashish Jakhanwala, Managing Director and CEO, SAMHI; Deep Kalra, Chairman and Group CEO, MakeMyTrip; Deepak Bagla, Chief Executive Officer and MD, Invest India; Gaurav Bhushan, Global Chief Development Officer, Accorhotels; Katerina Giannouka, President - Asia Pacific, Radisson Hotel Group; Mark Hoplamazian, President and CEO, Hyatt Hotels Corporation; Nakul Anand, Executive Director, ITC Limited; Pascal Gauvin, Managing Director - India, Middle East and Africa, InterContinental Hotels Group; Patu Keswani, Chairman and MD, Lemon Tree Hotels Limited and Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and CEO, Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, to name a few.

The HICSA Organizing Committee thanks all speakers, sponsors, supporters and delegates for their continued support, and looks forward to welcoming everyone at the 14th edition of HICSA, scheduled on 4 and 5 April, 2018.
